SIE Fund invites expression of interest for Venture Building Initiative from organisations
     The Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Fund (SIE Fund) Task Force today (January 6) invited organisations that are interested in taking forward the Venture Building Initiative to express their interest.
     SIE Fund has been encouraging social entrepreneurs to make good use of resources from different sectors, such as the business and philanthropy sectors, to jointly promote the sustainable development of the social innovation ecosystem. The Fund plans to launch the Venture Building Initiative to further promote cross-sector collaboration. Organisations with extensive network and professional knowledge will be invited to assist social ventures in coping with various challenges during development stage, and in turn support the ventures to create greater social impact. The purpose of this exercise is to evaluate the market interest in the Initiative. It is not a selection process.

     Interested organisations can download the expression of interest documents with the specified submission form from the SIE Fund website (www.sie.gov.hk/en/news-event/news.page). All submitted documents should be placed in a sealed envelope clearly marked with "Expression of Interest for implementing programmes under the Venture Building Initiative of the Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Fund" and must be submitted to the Efficiency Office, 14/F, Treasury Building, 3 Tonkin Street West, Cheung Sha Wan, Kowloon, at or before 6pm on February 6, 2023 (Monday). Late submissions will not be considered. For further information and inquiries, please visit the SIE Fund website or contact the SIE Fund Task Force Secretariat at 2165 7278.

     SIE Fund was inaugurated in 2013 and is overseen by the SIE Fund Task Force under the Commission on Poverty. The Task Force Secretariat is established in the Efficiency Office under the Innovation, Technology and Industry Bureau. SIE Fund acts as a catalyst for social innovation in Hong Kong. By facilitating social innovation and cultivating social entrepreneurship, the Fund aims to make an impact on alleviating poverty and social exclusion, promote social integration as well as enhance the well-being and cohesion of society.
