About Corporate Entrepreneurship Responsibility (CER)

While Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a fixture of corporate policy that is widely adopted by businesses, the framework is unsustainable. Instead, corporations should start embracing Corporate Entrepreneurship Responsibility (CER).

Entrepreneurship is not only a powerful tool for both job creation and wealth generation, it also provides a platform for market expansion and fosters innovation, as well as empowers people to find solutions to everyday problems while creating economic opportunities. As a collaborative movement, CER can mobilize the private sector to play an active role in nurturing a thriving entrepreneurial ecosystems.

CER does not just allow corporates to advance their social goals. With the right model and strategy, the engagement with startups and entrepreneurs can enable corporates to innovate and discover new ventures. As corporate innovation is no longer just a key ingredient in success, but essential to survival, we encourage corporate partners and industry leaders to leverage on CER as a platform to contribute to the development of entrepreneurs in the region and harness innovation through direct collaboration with startups.
