A Hong Kong Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Fund Info Session on 6 November


The very first social innovation camp has just passed in Hong Kong and  nother tech x social entrepreneurship event is happening soon. It seems that more Hong Kong people are caring about social innovation and some are even trying to make the social changes themselves.

However, to actually realize that with a service or product, realistic challenges and burdens will surface. The bold good hearts may need support on their way of growing social projects. It is so great that the Hong Kong government is developing a fund tailored for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

Good news came that the Hong Kong government recently launched a HK$500 million Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Fund (SIE Fund) supporting those innovative projects that aims to make some good changes. This is the first fund ever announced by Hong Kong government to support entrepreneurial individuals to tackle different social problems and challenges facing Hong Kong today.

You probably are an environmentalist starting a rooftop garden, a foodie caring about food leftover, or a social-minded programmer who wants to tap into open government data to make people’s life better – Then you would definitely find this a great opportunity for launching or scaling up your social project!

If you want to know more about this exciting news, on 6 November at the Good Lab, Patricia Lau from the Efficiency Unit is going to share on what exactly SIE Fund is and how it works. This is a great opportunity for you to learn more about the details of this fund, so mark you calendar and see you there.
