List of Winners of S.I. Leadership Award

The Yunus Social Business Centre@CUHK, which is an affiliate of this Centre, has introduced the S.I. Leadership Award for application by the CUHK students and alumni who are interested in social innovation.  This award, paired up with training activities and team coaching, serves to encourage participants to advance existing services or products to meet social needs.  The winning projects will each receive a maximum of HK$160,000 as seed money.

In the last academic year, altogether 15 teams went through a half-year training and coaching.  At the end, six teams were able to formulate their operation plans to compete for the S.I. Leadership Award.  They attended the Project Presentation Day held on 4 July 2019 to introduce their projects to the judging panel comprised of the following:

Ms. Irene Ng (Director, I·CARE Centre for Whole-person Development)
Ms. Elsie Tsui (Project Director, Centre for Entrepreneurship, CUHK)
Dr. Claire Wang (Centre Administrative Secretary, Yunus Social Business Centre@CUHK)
Dr. Luk Tak-chuen (Project Coordinator, Yunus Social Business Centre@CUHK)

The judging panel gave the teams valuable advice on their project ideas, feasibility and level of social impact.  After serious consideration, the list of winners of the S.I. Leadership Award is set out below:
