The Spirit of Enterprise promotes and advances entrepreneurial spirit in Singapore by honouring local self-reliant entrepreneurs operating small and medium-sized businesses. We also serve to inspire Singaporeans, especially the young, to become entrepreneurs by facilitating interaction, communication and knowledge dissemination between students, the entrepreneurs and the general public.
There is a sustained, ongoing, persistent effort to honour and inspire.
Our main event is the SPIRIT OF ENTERPRISE AWARDS and in addition to the Award Ceremony there are other programmes:
- Student-Entrepreneur Program - Funds are given to Primary School students to start a business.
- Book - Each year we distribute a book with practical stories and guidance on entrepreneurship based on the interviews conducted with our award nominees to our local schools. The book is also available in leading bookstores and libraries.
- SOE International - SOE has established itself in Mauritius since 2005 and has formed the organizing committee of SOE Vietnam in August 2006. It is also in the process of organizing in Thailand.
- TV and Radio Programmes - SOE and ACE have jointly collaborated with Mediacorp and Right Angle to produce an 8-part Start-Up Challenge TV Series aired on Channel 5 in May & June 2005.
