New Batch of Intermediaries

The SIE Fund has engaged intermediaries as strategic partners to take forward initiatives under Capacity Building and Innovative Programmes since 2015. To date, all targets for intermediaries regarding incubating ideas, nurturing social entrepreneurs and sponsoring innovative ventures have been achieved.

Upon the near completion of service by the first batch of intermediaries, the SIE Fund has decided to engage a new batch of intermediaries and invited proposals from interested parties to apply for the role of intermediaries for designing and administering Innovative Programmes to nurture and incubate social innovators or ventures of different forms and at different stages of development. Proposals from entities established in Hong Kong which share the Fund’s objective of nurturing social innovation and social entrepreneurship for alleviation and prevention of poverty, prevention of social exclusion, enhancement of overall well-being of beneficiaries and facilitation of social cohesion are welcome. [Application closed at 6pm, 28 March 2019]

An invitation brief setting out the scope of services, the eligibility and submission requirements, the assessment process and selection criteria as well as key engagement terms can be downloaded here.  Proposals should be submitted by 6pm on 28 March 2019 (Thursday). Two identical briefing sessions for this invitation exercise were held on 25 and 29 January (please click here for the presentation materials). Those who have missed the briefing sessions can also leave their contact information here to receive updates on this invitation exercise.

The current invitation seeks to invite proposals for one of the Fund's funding priorities, i.e. innovative programmes, only.  Invitation for proposals for acting as intermediaries to take forward the other two priority areas of work, namely capacity building and research, will be issued later.

For enquiry, please call 2165 7389 (9:30am to 12:30pm and 2pm to 6pm, Monday to Friday except Public Holiday) or send email to siefund@effo.gov.hk.
