The 13th Social Enterprise Summit (SES 2020) concluded successfully, after three days of strong online engagement. COVID-19 not only highlights the value of social innovation it underscores the value of each and everyone in our community. Increasingly corporations and investors are prioritizing social impact as a core business strategy for growth and sustainable development. Social enterprises instill solid social values and innovative ideas into the ecosystem while creating changes in the private sector over time.
The three-day SES 2020 online International Symposium brought together over 80 speakers from 15 locations to contribute to thirteen seminars, two thematic sessions, a workshop, a keynote speech, a policy dialogue, an exchange session, and a concluding session. Four sub-themes were featured in parallel sessions, namely "Community Empowerment", "Digital Social Innovation", "Sustainability and Business", and "Education Innovation". The last day of this year’s symposium was featuring the Asia Youth Entrepreneurship Exchange and a social innovation workshop. Titled “Yesterday's Heritage; Today's Transformation; Tomorrow's DYNAMIC INNOVATION”, the concluding session took the form of a specially curated narrative involving guest speakers from across generations and social sectors, who shared their insights into "The New Normal To Be".
Thank you for all your support which is crucial to the success of the event. Let’s pass on the messages and ideas gained from SES to move forward with collective power.
