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.
Insights – Realistic assessment of strengths and weaknesses
Implementation – Co-implementation of designed business roadmap
Impact – Focus on expanding capabilities for greater social impact
What can I expect?
A 12-week intensive programme to chart and kickstart the implementation of your corporate resilience roadmap. It is designed using Consulus PurposeCORE methodology to help SEs shape purpose-driven growth and to future-proof the businesses for sustainable impact.
This is a fast implementation programme as Consulus will help to implement some new processes and initiatives:
- Identify new business opportunities to future-proof beyond Covid-19.
- Implement new processes and programmes in your business, organisational and branding model to realise change.

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.
As there is a global shift in mindsets from a commitment to shareholders to a focus on stakeholders instead, therefore raiSE advocates for corporations to explore new and innovative ways to contribute to the development of the social enterprise sector. 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.
