Set up in an emblematic innovation hub, the Social Innovation and Global Ethics Forum will debate Fintech and Blockchain, Future Energy, Smart Cities, UN SDGs, Medtech and Impact Investing.
The 5th edition of SIGEF, the Social Innovation and Global Ethics Forum, is set up in Singapore on 12-13 September, to coincide with the ASEAN 2018 Chairmanship. Organized by Horyou, the Social Network for Social Good, it will stage top-class debates on the social innovation challenges and trends of our times to an international and diverse audience, at Suntec Singapore.
A highly qualified team of entrepreneurs, innovators and thought leaders will cover disruptive trends that are changing the way our society works globally, some of them amongst the top priorities for governments and international organizations. In its 5th edition, SIGEF is being held for the first time in Southeast Asia, with an agenda focused on the future developments of our interconnected societies, gathering a worldwide audience comprised by social entrepreneurs, business leaders, impact investors and government officials.
“Horyou is honored to bring SIGEF to Singapore, known globally as an innovative technological and financial hub, we are hopeful the event will help shape better times to come in Southeast Asia and beyond,”, says Yonathan Parienti, Founder of Horyou.
SIGEF2018 panels will stage ideas, propositions and projects stemming from inspiring thought leaders and experts, including Mikkel Larsen Chief Sustainability Officer of DBS, Arndt Husar, former UNDP Deputy Director, as well as personalities like Josie Ho, singer and actress, influential entrepreneur Kazuhiro Hisata, investor and founder of SRS Fintech Commerce (SFC), Hayden Majajas, Head of Diversity & Inclusion APAC Bloomberg, Steve Leonard, Founding CEO of SGInnovate, or Leopold Feiler, co-founder of Global Energy Storage (GES), will share, among others, their insights with a global audience.
As it happened in its former editions in Geneva (Switzerland), Marrakesh (Morocco) and Astana (Kazakhstan), SIGEF aims to foster positive change on the social innovation ecosystem in Southeast Asia. “The Forum is a great opportunity to join voices and talents around some of the most disruptive challenges of our times, and we believe Singapore is now a central location to discuss them”, says Yonathan Parienti.
SIGEF2018 is organized by Horyou and is the result of the collaboration with dedicated partners such as Founding Partners SRS Fintech Commerce (SFC), HoryouToken and Horyou Foundation.
