SUSS SBIZ Business Plan Competition 2022


About

In line with Singapore’s national drive to forge sustainable development in the digital era, as well as Singapore University of Social Sciences’ (SUSS) core values of Innovation for Excellence and Passion for Community, we are organising a business plan competition to promote awareness on sustainability and digital entrepreneurship. This year’s competition takes into consideration two core aspects of Singapore’s development: (1) pursuing novel initiatives that promote sustainable development, and (2) harnessing the digital economy.

Participants should thus analyse how they can leverage digital business solutions to enhance sustainable living and development (broadly defined, covering environmental, economic and/or social dimensions) in Singapore. Especially for students from junior colleges, polytechnics and the Millennia Institute, this competition hopes to encourage and motivate students to not only be entrepreneurial, but also socially responsible, digitally savvy and perceptive of the broader complex environment. Shortlisted teams will have the opportunity to showcase their plans during the finals of the competition.

All submissions must be prepared in English. For the submission requirements and guidelines, please click here.
