LeapForGood Demo Day

Join us at the LeapForGood Demo Day happening on the 18 August 2018 (Saturday)!

LeapForGood (LFG) is a year-long programme organised by the Singapore Centre for Social Enterprise (raiSE) to inspire innovation in addressing emerging social needs through social entrepreneurship. The current run of the programme focuses on the Work, Life & Play of Seniors and Caregivers. A human-centred design approach and community partnerships feature strongly in the programme.

Since the launch of our programme on 3rd February, over 400 individuals have joined us for our learning journeys, consultation clinics, workshops as well as a hackathon to discover the needs of seniors and caregivers, and to develop social enterprise ideas to address these needs. More details on the programme can be found here.

In May, 12 teams were selected to prototype their social enterprise ideas and will be pitching at Demo Day on 18 August 2018 to get grants of up to $100,000 each to kickstart their social enterprise! You can find out more about the 12 teams pitching here.

We invite you to join us if you are:
  • An individual curious to find out more about the social enterprise sector
  • A senior or caregiver who wish to learn more about solutions which can benefit you and your loved ones
  • An organisation interested to partner the teams in implementing their solutions
  • An investor/funder keen to fund or invest in innovative ideas for social change
Look out for these exciting activities planned:
  • Watch 12 passionate teams pitch their social enterprise ideas to a panel of judges for grants of up to $100,000 each
  • Experience the innovative product and service concepts of the teams at our Experience Marketplace
  • Fund your favourite teams through our crowdfunding activity (raiSE is doing dollar-for-dollar matching to help double your impact to the teams!)
  • Enjoy handcrafted churros with an assortment of tasty dips from Churros Republic, premium coffee from our social enterprise Foreword Coffee, and delicious bakes from our social enterprise Flour Power

About raiSE
The Singapore Centre for Social Enterprise (raiSE) was set up in 2015 to develop the social enterprise sector in Singapore.

As a sector developer, we seed and nurture new enterprises by providing advisory services, programmes, training and resources. We enable existing social enterprises to grow and become sustainable by providing financing options, capacity building and mentorship. Where possible, raiSE seeks to connect with social enterprises and intermediary bodies in the region and share best practices with each other. We also raise awareness of what a social enterprise is and their contributions to the society, as well as the goods and services they provide.
