South Beach is pleased to announce it is the official Virtual Venue Sponsor for this year’s Festival For Good – Asia’s largest celebration of Social Enterprises and the impact they create. During this unprecedented and challenging period, the festival will take place virtually this year, instead of here at South Beach as originally planned. With virtual events slowly and gradually becoming the new normal, South Beach is glad to continue this partnership and support this meaningful event which will take place from 24 Oct to 22 Nov 2020.
The festival features Social Enterprises across a Marketplace, a B2B Experience, workshops, conversations, and a stage with live performances and insightful content about Social Enterprises.
Organised by the Singapore Centre for Social Enterprise (raiSE), FestivalForGood seeks to raise awareness and understanding of social enterprises (SEs) in Singapore and encourage public consumption of SE goods and services. We hope to bring together the diverse and vibrant community of social entrepreneurs in Singapore, celebrating their spirit, innovation and passion to do good through their businesses.
In its 4th run, FFG2020 is set to be raiSE’s first virtual festival to showcase the SE sector, celebrate SEs and the impact they create. In today’s climate, we are also witnessing an upward trend of services and products moving online and the importance of banding together as a SE sector to create awareness and raise support collectively. FFG2020 will be an integrated, interactive, and engaging virtual festival for SEs and consumers to connect through a 1-month campaign. The virtual festival will take place online between 24 October and 22 November 2020. This year’s Festival features 110 Social Enterprises both locally and, in the region, across 5 features such as Marketplace, B2B Experience, Conversations, Workshops and Stage. It is open to public.
We hope to build the Festival as a signature component of #partofthegood and the SG Cares movement to encourage Singaporeans to contribute to the Social Enterprise community – be it through direct purchases, volunteering or skills and knowledge transfer.
