This initiative is to support social ventures in various stages of development. Also, more teams will be awarded prize money 2 teams in Idea Category with S$5000 each, and 6 teams in Enterprise category with S$20k each).
For post-competition support, there will be a signature programme by DBS Foundation for the finalists. It is in hope that these will support more teams in a more holistic way. In terms of timeline, applications are now open till 14th May and finale will be in early October.
