Ms Elim Chew: Fashioned By Change
Founder & President, 77th Street (S) Pte Ltd (11 Nov 2015)

About the Speaker

Ms Elim Chew is no ordinary Singaporean. She is most well-known for her role as founder of streetwear brand, 77th Street. But the 50-year-old also wears other hats as a youth ambassador and advocate of social entrepreneurship.

To date, Ms Chew sits on more than 20 boards and committees of public service, youth and community organisations, working hard to make positive change to society, particularly among the young. She sits on the Board of Directors at *SCAPE Co. Ltd and is a committee member of the National Youth Council’s National Youth Fund Advisory Committee.

She is constantly working with the youth through the school system and organisations she has established, acting as a mentor to guide them through the problems they face, and helping them to realise their dreams in spite of the challenges that come their way.

In recognition of her efforts, she has received numerous awards. These include Most Promising Woman Entrepreneur 2010 by the Singapore Association of Small and Medium Enterprises, Forbes Asia Hero of Philanthropy 2010, and the Singapore Public Service Medal (PBM) in 2011.

Outside of work, she enjoys fishing and can be found every weekend at D'Best Fishing in Pasir Ris Town Park or Auntie's Pond in Neo Tiew Crescent.
