Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Fund (SIE Fund) Briefing Session
13/02/2020

Do you have any innovative ideas that address the problems of poverty and social exclusion in Hong Kong? Are you looking for funding and other kinds of support to test, start, grow or scale your social project?

An intermediary of the Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Fund (SIE Fund), Impact Incubator of The Hong Kong Council of Social Service cordially invites all current and potential social innovators and social entrepreneurs to join our next Impact Incubator briefing session. At the session, our team will briefly introduce our new Impact Incubator, key programme features and answer any questions you may have on applying for SIE Fund grant funding, through the Impact Incubator.

We will conduct two briefing sessions. For the safety of our participants in the current coronavirus epidemic situation, each session will be held as an online meeting. Each participant can only register for and join one session. Successful registrants will receive the briefing pack and participation details for a specific session.

The SIE Fund was established by the Commission on Poverty in 2012 to stimulate cross-sector collaboration, encourage learning and experience sharing, guide resources to groom and coach social entrepreneurs and to incubate and implement new ideas. The expectation is that some of these new ideas will lead to new, sustainable businesses that can help tackle poverty and social exclusion issues in the community.
