The NUS ACSEP and the SE Association, invite you to join us for a 2 part workshop on how to effectively launch your social enterprise in Singapore. Level 1 covers "Designing and Planning your Social Enterprise" and Level 2 will go into "Implementing and Managing your Social Enterprise". Participants who complete both levels will receive a certificate of completion from NUS ACSEP and SE Association.


Level 1 of this workshop includes:


  • What is the current landscape of the social enterprise sector in Singapore? How does your social enterprise fit in?
  • Clarify your assumptions on personal goals and social impact using a Theory of Change analysis
  • Dissect your social enterprise using the SE Patterns Canvas - identify gaps in your business model and social impact strategy
  • Review of case studies on local social enterprises


Work towards an action plan for Level 2 of the workshop - Implementing & Managing your Social Enterprise

This practical and interactive workshop introduces participants with a rigorous SE planning process and know-how in designing successful social enterprises.


Those who have successfully completed the professional course will be given opportunities to work with SE Association to develop their social enterprise plans.
