Toolkit for SEs

SIP partnered with PricewaterhouseCoopers and DBS Bank to create a Toolkit for Social Entrepreneurs. The toolkit is designed to provide you the foundation and key principles necessary for creating your own social enterprise in Singapore. It aims to remove of some of the stress and confusion involved in establishing a social enterprise, enabling you to leapfrog past some of the traditional hurdles social entrepreneurs face when building a social enterprise.

The contents are divided into two primary sections as follows:

Section 1: Starting and Managing a Social Enterprise (Developed in collaboration with PricewaterhouseCoopers)

Section 2: Financing and Managing Liquidity (Developed in collaboration with DBS Bank)

The updated cash management link on page 69 is: http://www.dbs.com/sg/business/cashmanagement/default.aspx

The Toolkit is designed to be read straight through; however it can also be used as a reference guide for when you have specific questions. Please contact us if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. We’re especially interested in improving the content and design, so if you are keen to work on the next version we’d love to have your support!

Publication

The “Top 50 Social Innovations Changing Our World” book is a ground up initiative by SIP. The book documents policy and social innovations that have transformed Singapore from third world to first. Essentially, it aims to push the envelope to encourage readers to rethink socio-economic and political policies and framework in a fast-changing world and their rules of engagement.

“…the world is being redefined by social innovations & innovators – thanks to meeting of the rise of the 4th Industrial Revolution and social consciousness” – Founder of Social Innovation Park and co-author Penny Low
