Social Enterprise Research Academy (SERA) established in 2014. With the mission statement of “Harness the Market to Bring Social Caring”, SERA aims to promote a sustainable development in Asian communities. SERA values social responsibility as a common value and brings together sustainability elites from business, academia, social and political sectors to establish a cross-industry “Talent Tank” to promote social responsibility and exert positive social influence from top to bottom.

We bring together business leaders and organizations with a strong sense of social responsibility to conduct joint research on social issues, based on the Social Caring Pledge Framework and the six guiding principles.

The SCP Framework is a proprietary model developed through years of research and real-life input from social caring leaders and leading organizations. At the heart of this framework is the development of purpose and vision for organizations, supported by agile and responsible leadership at all 4 sectors – Business, Academic, Political and Social, based on the 6 social caring pledge principles, resulting in the creation of shared value among stakeholders and delivery of consistent impact on environmental, social and corporate governance.
