Description

Social Challenges and Solutions in Urban Cities
- Discover innovative solutions with Singapore Social Enterprises

What social problems do developed countries face?


Earlier in 2018, Acumen America shared with Singapore+Acumen Impact Circle members their work, taking a deep dive into addressing the big issues facing those living in poverty in the U.S. today.


Singapore, in addition to the U.S., is a developed country and a hub of innovation, which also faces a growing number of social challenges, such as Senior Citizens Care, Women Empowerment, Persons with Disabilities Inclusion, and so on. In order to tackle those issues, a number of local social enterprises are creating innovative solutions and delivering products and services to enhance individual lives, strengthen communities and improve civil society.

Join Singapore+Acumen for an exciting sharing session to meet these social enterprises!


We will first recap what we have learnt from Acumen America on current social issues in the U.S. and the parallels in Singapore context. Then you will hear from two local social enterprises on how they are addressing such social challenges, as well as their growth journey, successes, and challenges. This event is a great opportunity to learn and network with individuals in the field, and share your own ideas and/or questions!
