Be An Idea revisits Habitat for Humanity's Batam Build for another build as part of the Brick By Brick programme.
Be An Idea is changing. In fact, we've been quietly changing over the last several months and what's really changed is that we're ready to announce this to the world. We recognise that being a 6-year old enterprise that is still pivoting in start-up mode feels very much like being Steve Carell's Andy Stitzer character in Forty Year Old Virgin. We've pivoted a few times and each new pivot sows plenty of confusion about what we do.
I am very pleased to wish Singapore a happy birthday from myself and behalf of Be An Idea. Over 9 years ago, I came to the shores of this island nation with a hope to build a life, and it has been amazing to see how the country has developed in a short decade, let alone the last 50 years. While other countries are locked into a direction by the weight of history and their culture, as a young nation, Singapore has an emerging discourse on its direction and values that is both vibrant. It feels like a work in progress, but one that its people, residents and foreigners can still greatly influence in the choices that we make.
