The Social Innovation+ competition is designed to raise awareness for social impact among the future leaders of our society and to encourage innovation for a greater social cause, especially through exploring the finance and technology spectrum.
The competition aims to unlock students’ potential in the direction of making the world a better place through Social Innovation and Design Thinking.
You are required to propose a Social Innovation business model that could be incorporated into today’s society, with the use of Design Thinking, finance and technology aiming to resolve the socio-economic problems in Hong Kong, the Greater Bay Area or the ASEAN.
The application of financial and technological methods is encouraged to enhance sustainability, induce positive change, and resolve societal challenges. You can refer to the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) as guidelines to develop your solutions.
