ABOUT SG100 FOUNDATION

SG100 Foundation is a social enterprise (member of raiSE, Singapore Centre for Social Enterprise) established with the purpose of building a strong foundation to establish a prosperous and sustainable future for Singapore. This has been done through the collective efforts of our pioneer generation. To ensure continued success, our key aim is to engage youths who will be the building blocks of SG100 through offering mentorship and guidance. The end result is a succession of sound values and valuable experience to the younger generation. The amalgamation of experience, as well as creative ideas from youths, will be essential in creating great ideas for the future.

As a small independent nation, Singapore has had the immense fortune of having leaders who brought us through humble beginnings to the bustling metropolitan city we are today. This success, though phenomenal, is not guaranteed to stay with us if we do not stay humble. Hence, this is the time to build up a brighter future with the efforts of our younger generations, who will be the main pillars and decision makers in the road towards SG100.As we conclude SG50, the focus is to build on this momentum to reach greater heights in the years ahead. We plan to kickstart this through engaging the youths by providing guidance, mentorship and opportunities to build networks and create a brighter future for Singapore.
