A highly qualified team of entrepreneurs, innovators and thought leaders will cover disruptive trends that are changing the way how society works globally, some of them amongst the top priorities for governments and international organizations.

“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.

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.
