Social Enterprises, are you ready to grow?

Consulus, together with the Singapore Centre for Social Enterprise, raiSE, invite Social Enterprises (SE) in Singapore to embark on a growth journey with the raiSE Grow B.I.G. (Grow in Business, Impact, Good) Programme.

Pivot Your SE Business In the “Never Normal” Age

The raiSE Grow B.I.G. Programme is a targeted transformation programme to help your SE move from Survivability to Sustainability to emerge as Resilient and Relevant in the “Never Normal” Age.

The programme is designed to help SEs navigate with purpose and minimise uncertainty, through a proven approach that involves mapping out threats and opportunities, to re-strategize and pivot to new opportunities for scalability, and to redesign key activities for greater social impact. The programme is structured to allow immediate implementation of the new roadmap and to guide you throughout its entire duration.

— TESTIMONIALS

Hear from leaders from the first cohort

During the engagement, we evaluated what were the key drivers to the success of our business. After understanding the drivers, we adjusted our value proposition to our customers such as crafting our purposes, vision, social mission, and brand message. With this customer value proposition, we were able to create a game plan to bring this value to our customers. This included developing a forecast model, a hiring plan and an execution plan for each team within the company as well as a fund-raising plan. The big result coming out of Grow B.I.G was that we are now more focused on what’s important to our customers and our business.
Jonathan

CEO, BeamandGo

Grow B.I.G was an eye-opening experience! It was refreshing and humbling to have someone else look at the company in such detail and assemble the big picture for us. The insights from different metrics and functions that we either had not realised or took for granted, provided us with workable frameworks to create more focus, consistency and clarity in our operations, branding and overall direction. Refocusing our efforts to keep the business in a sustainable position during the pandemic would enable us to carry on with work that we do and the social impact that we are striving to achieve.
Moses

Co-founder, MYPX (Innervate Fitness)

I realise that having passion alone is not enough. In order to meaningfully help my people to rebuild their lives, I have to be very intentional in living out Infinite’s purpose. Through the programme, I have gained greater clarity on how to scale my business, empower my core team, build professional management capabilities and create an inclusive and empathetic environment to accentuate positive performance.

Singapore Centre for Social Enterprise, raiSE

As an ecosystem builder, raiSE seed and nurture new social enterprises by providing advisory services, programmes, training, and resources. They enable existing social enterprises to grow and become sustainable by providing financing options, capacity building and mentorship.

raiSE seeks to connect with social enterprises and intermediary bodies in the region and share best practices with each other.

SMEs and MNCs in Singapore who are looking for more sustainable ways of corporate social responsibility can opt to make social enterprise a big part of their ESG goals and sustainability reporting plans.
