What is Makan For Hope?
Makanforhope is an in-person initiative that continues from Mentorforhope, a mentoring and charity fundraising campaign supported by many venture capital firms in ASEAN and tech industry leaders, as well as Temasek Foundation (through oscar@sg grant) last year. Our host is typically a serial entrepreneur, investor or expert. At each "makan" session, the host will be joined by seven other guests, tech founders and individuals passionate about the tech space for coffee.
Makanforhope is designed to bring together intellectually curious, like-minded folks to learn from the host and to provide the opportunity for our guests to network or help someone out through their own experience or tapping into their network. #weareinittogether
We aim to do good in three ways:
1) Bring like minded individuals together so that meaningful conversations may initiate
2) Dine at a social enterprise or a cafe/ restaurant which serve a social cause
3) Raise donations for a charity beneficiary. Each guest would pay US$15 for a coffee session or US$20 for a lunch session and 85% is donated to our nominated beneficiary for the month.*
