Raise defines Social Enterprises (SEs) as business entities set up with clear social goals; and where there is clear management intent and resources allocated to fulfil their social objectives.

Social entrepreneurship in Singapore is still in its early days.Social enterprises provide business solutions to address unmet and emerging social needs and gaps. They have the potential to make a difference, create value and solve social challenges in sustainable ways. SEs have grown to become part of a broader system to address social needs. In an emerging trend, they also fulfil the aspirations of a new generation of Singaporeans who are passionate to do good through means other than charities, and as a part of their daily lives.
