We support innovative ventures of different forms and stages for poverty-alleviation and prevention of social exclusion. A total of 99 ventures have been funded through programmes administered by intermediaries as of end-January 2018.
Have an innovative idea? We have engaged intermediaries to administer capacity building programmes and funding schemes. Individuals and organisations with innovative ideas in addressing poverty and social exclusion and wish to seek support for implementation may approach the intermediaries direct.
Social Innovators come from different walks of life, different generations and have different background but all share the same empathy for the underprivileged and apply their expertise to drive change for social good. Be inspired by their stories.
We gather information on events in Hong Kong relating to social innovation and social entrepreneurship. Take part in them to build your network, enhance your capacity and be equipped to start your own innovative venture.
The number of innovative ventures continues to grow. As of end-January 2018, the SIE Fund has approved 99 ventures through programmes of intermediaries. Visit the Innovative Programmes section for details.
