Young Techpreneur Project - Up to HK$100,000 funding
Cantonese & English
Technology has permeated every aspect of our lives, from where we live to how we live; from what we consume, how we study or what we find aesthetically pleasing. All these technological developments would not be possible without the talents of those with innovative curiosity, ideas, skills and the passion to them relevant and practical for everyone. This is the age of the Techpreneurs – that group of entrepreneurs whose whole focus is technology.
The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups, with the sponsorship of the Lo Kwee Seong Foundation is once again organising the Young Techpreneur Project 2022-23. Young people, aged 18 to 35, are encouraged to submit their unique proposals, combining innovation and technology as a first step on their entrepreneurial journey. A total of 15 projects will be selected and the authors will be invited to join an intensive and exclusive training programme, which includes mentorship support and then a final pitching. A shortlist of six winners will receive HKD100,000 in grants to kick-start their projects.
After an overwhelming response in 2021, this is the second year of the Young Techpreneur Project. This year there will be added components to the training, including writing proposals, marketing, design, understanding the metaverse and NFTs, as well as familiarity with Social Return on Investments (SROI). Winners will also receive free desk space for a year, business start-up support, network referrals, continued mentorship and help to promote their projects.
