Soristic is a mission-driven organisation committed to assist philanthropists, foundations, corporates, social enterprises, non-profits and governments drive changes and solutions to accelerate progress for the organisations and society.
We believe that socially driven organisations are slowed down by a lack of information and inefficient allocation of resources. We help to bridge the gap in knowledge and provide creative solutions to allow our partners (aka clients) to have greater impact on the ground. By helping them be more effective, we also help alleviate the issues facing the communities they work with.
We work collaboratively with our partners and stakeholders to co-create innovative solutions and see them through from concept to implementation. We strive to be a catalytic force in ensuring effective, sustainable social change for organisations and communities.
Based in Singapore, Soristic works on projects both locally and in the South East Asia region.
Soristic is a member of raiSE, Singapore Centre for Social Enterprise.
Soristic works with partners and stakeholders to drive innovative changes to accelerate social impact and sustainability for organisations and communities in South East Asia.
Achieving greater social equality in South East Asia through an outcome-driven approach to addressing challenges in the communities.
