We need your help
We need to raise HK$100,000 to launch our biggest project to date: an experiential learning course about social innovation & philanthropy - “Social Ventures Advisory and Fund Management ”. This fall, we will partner with the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) to co-curate a 13-week credit-bearing course.
This course will allow Tech & Business student to create digitalized and sustainable business solutions for emerging social enterprises, and become grantmaking panel judges to distribute a real philanthropy fund. Instructed by HKUST Prof. Betty Lin and ex-investment banker Prof. Entela Benz, the course includes both offline and online lectures, hands-on business advisory experience, social ventures due diligence and a grantmaking conference facilitating students to decide and allocate a real grant of HK$100,000.
Professional business consultants from MNC would join our programme as student mentors to guide them throughout the whole project. In the past, top performing students have received summer internship and graduate trainee positions from our corporate partners.
For this course, PIMx HK is grateful to have the 6 social enterprises as our course partners which would work with student-consultants to create sustainable business solutions and potentially receive the funding of up to HK$100,000. The themes of social enterprises include education, poverty alleviation, woman empowerment, community care for the disabled and arts.
