The Alipay-NUS Enterprise Social Innovation Challenge is an initiative to find the most innovative social impact enterprises, with a focus on digital technology towards building an inclusive society. Top innovations may potentially receive further support to amplify their positive impact on society.
The challenge will be accessible to all innovators/start-ups which aim to achieve social impact in Singapore and/or Southeast Asia (starting with Indonesia and Malaysia first) by leveraging digital technology to solve social issues relating to equality development and opportunities.
Areas of focus could include but not limited to the following:
Helping low-income groups gain access to more jobs or education opportunities.
Helping the elderly and the disadvantaged groups such as people with disabilities, migrant workers and low-income families keep pace with the fast-changing society as technology advances.
A cash prize of $10,000 for top 3 in each location, and S$50,000 for the Grand prize will be awarded along with potential mentorship and incubation support from the NUS Enterprise, Ant Financial, and other local partners.
