Ben & Jerry’s will be debuting its business competition for social enterprises, Join Our Core, in Singapore for the first time on 1 September 2014. Getting back to their core of a values-led business, Ben & Jerry’s is on the hunt for 11 young social entrepreneurs across Europe and Asia who are creating cool new sustainable business models that make a difference to communities. Winners get to scoop a €10,000 cash prize, business mentoring from Ashoka, study trip to Ben & Jerry’s HQ in Vermont, USA and marketing support from Ben & Jerry’s Singapore.

The competition launch will be held in conjunction with Ben & Jerry’s first Sundae School session, specially organised for interested participants to get the inside scoop from social innovation heroes as they share how making dough comes hand-in-hand with changing our world.
