Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Fund (SIE Fund) Briefing Session
Reappointed as one of the SIE Fund's Intermediaries for the next few years, we will continue to work with the SIE Fund to strengthen our core offering and focus on supporting large-scale and mature projects that address poverty and/or social exclusion issues in Hong Kong. In addition to changes in matching fund arrangements, application procedures and criteria have also been streamlined. As a super-connector, we will continue to provide comprehensive support to facilitate meaningful exchanges amongst social entrepreneurs, social purpose organisations and various sectors.Impact Incubator's first cohort in 2023 opens for applications on 11 April 2023. The application deadline is 31 May 2023. We will continue to support projects at different stages, including Scale-up, Growing, Start-up, and Late prototype stages. The Late prototype stage is only applicable for this application round, so seize this last opportunity. We hope to support innovative projects in their continuous progress and "promote" them to a larger scale, creating broader and more far-reaching social impact! SIE Fund was established by the Commission on Poverty in 2012 to stimulate cross-sector collaboration, sharing learning and experience, guiding resources to groom and coach entrepreneurs, incubating and implementing new ideas, with the expectation that some of these will lead to new, sustainable businesses that help tackle poverty and social exclusion in the community.
