Membership Registration

The Singapore Centre for Social Enterprise, raiSE is an ecosystem developer and membership body for aspiring social entrepreneurs, existing social enterprises and other stakeholders that are interested in contributing to the development of social enterprises in Singapore. raiSE seeds and nurtures 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 expertise and business mentorship.

Our Centre defines social enterprises (SE) as "a business entity set up with clear social goals where there are clear management intent and resources allocated to fulfil social gaps and needs." What this means is that in Singapore, an SE is a registered entity with ACRA (e.g., LLP, Sole Proprietorship, Pte Ltd). An SE should derive majority of its trading revenue from the provision of goods/services to its consumer base and have at least 20% of the company’s resources allocated to addressing a social gap or need. In doing so, they also deliver social impact. Thus, one can say that SEs are geared towards a double bottom line of achieving social impact alongside financial returns.

It is recommended for Social Enterprises to sign up with your organisation's general email :)
