DBS Foundation

Since 2012, DBS supported over 100 social enterprises in Asia with grant funding. Including the non-financial resources and business procurement opportunities that DBS provides, we have worked with over 200 social enterprises.

The Foundation partners renowned social enterprise developers to facilitate knowledge sharing and build the capacity of early stage social enterprises to achieve social and commercial viability. These partners also provide incubation, bootcamps, workshops and some financial support to social enterprises. Some of our grant partners include NUS Enterprise, Village Capital and Tata Institute of Social Sciences in India, SE Insights in Taiwan, YouChange Foundation in China, the Hong Kong Council of Social Service (HKCSS), and more.

Complementing these partners, DBS Foundation continues to support social enterprises with its annually administered Social Enterprise Grant Programme. This grant programme enables social enterprises to develop a prototype of their idea, improve existing processes or add critical capabilities to achieve sustainability, or scale up their existing business that leads to greater social impact.
