Social Enterprise Startup Scheme

Launched by this Centre in 2015-16, the Social Enterprise Startup Scheme has been encouraging CUHK students and recent graduates to make good use of their expertise to establish or expand their social enterprises.  Participants will enrol in a mentorship programme through which valuable advice on formulating business plan and practical skills of running an enterprise will be offered by the experienced alumni.  The horizon and business network of participants are also expected to be widened.  Above all, they may receive from the CUSE Fund a maximum of HK$100,000 as seed money to start up an enterprise with social mission.

For this academic year, the Social Enterprise Startup Scheme will organise a series of activities to help participants develop and actualise their ideas.  Details are as follows:
