SOE organises the Spirit of Enterprise (SOE) Awards annually to honour and recognise our local business entrepreneurs’ achievements. Award honourees are evaluated and selected from the pool of SOE nominees interviewed by student interviewers, and are exemplary role models who have contributed towards the economic development of Singapore.
The SOE Awards provides a platform for local entrepreneurs to be recognised for their entrepreneurial excellence, therefore encouraging innovation, fair practices and growth in entrepreneurship. The Awards also exemplifies the commitment of the local community that has come together to promote entrepreneurship in Singapore, having recognised and supported over 550 entrepreneurs in their journey to build sustainable businesses.
Over the last 17 years, some notable past honourees include entrepreneurs from Charles & Keith, Cordlife, Dian Xiao Er, HungryGoWhere.com, Neo Group Pte Ltd, Ong & Ong Pte Ltd, PropNex Realty, Scanteak and Ya Kun Kaya Toast, amongst other home-grown brand names.
