Our Story

Octava Foundation is a Singapore-based private grantmaker with the mission to enable equitable education and skills development. We do so by deploying a venture philanthropy approach in supporting social innovators, entrepreneurs and not-for-profit organisations to develop solutions, strengthen the proposition and measurement to ultimately furthering their scale. 

Since our inception in 2017, we’ve supported 24 programmes reaching over 7000 children and youth, across the domains of education, vocational training, transition to work and student finance. In 2020, Octava decided to extend our mission into the region, focussing on supporting social innovation in Education and Student Finance domains.
