What is Solve n+1 and what do you do?
Solve n+1 is a company that facilitates social innovation for vulnerable communities. We are an impact research and development company that ideates with individuals and corporates who possess varying expertise to pilot test solutions for the vulnerable with the intention to scale. Through this, we encourage, equip and establish a network of individuals and corporates to do good, better. As our name Solve n+1 suggests, we solve unknowns one step at a time in bid to tackle social issues that often go unseen.
Is Solve n+1 a charity?
No, Solve n+1 is not a charity as Singapore law only allows organisations that primarily benefit local communities to be registered as one. Solve n+1 is therefore structured as a private company to enable us in carrying out work in Singapore and abroad. However, unlike any other business, our objective is not to make profits but to first extend relief and care to communities in need. Some of our "clients" are therefore also our partners - people with a shared burden for the projects identified by Solve n+1.
How it works
Solve n+1 identifies a gap, blind spot or situation that is affecting a community that needs to be addressed, and develops an actionable plan to address the issue identified. The actionable plan and the expected costs of implementation will be set out in a project factsheet developed by Solve n+1.
Once the project is completed, Solve n+1 will provide you with a full report on what had been done and an impact assessment (if relevant and appropriate) on the project. A breakdown of the cost of the project will also be provided.
If individuals or corporates wish to support a project, they can commission Solve n+1 to carry it out.
