SUSS has partnered with DBS Foundation to help the best student impact entrepreneurs scale to the region and create even more impact. The Impact Startup Challenge Grand Finale will have its inaugural edition held on 13 October and will see student teams who previously participated in one of the Impact Startup Challenges competing for the DBS Impact Startup Prize.
The Grand Finale will feature businesses built with social impact as a key aspect of their business. Startups will undergo mentorship with our industry experts, and pitch their business to a public audience across ASEAN, China and India.
The DBS Foundation Social Impact Prize will be awarded to the team that demonstrates a clear problem in society that is addressed, and a viable business solution. The prize includes a cash prize of SGD 10,000, SGD 5,000 and SGD 2,000. Selected startups will also be invited to join the DBSF community and network with access to capacity building so as to support your business.
