Since 2007, the Hong Kong Social Enterprise Challenge (HKSEC), a social venture business plan competition organized by the Center for Entrepreneurship of The Chinese University of Hong Kong, has been at the frontier in educating students and the general public about social enterprises in Hong Kong. Through a structured competition model, HKSEC encourages students to employ a creative entrepreneurial approach to solve real world social issues.
HKSEC is the first and only inter-collegiate social venture business competition in Hong Kong. Around 3,900 students from 24 institutions have had the opportunities to showcase their creative ideas and desire of being a change agent in our society by joining this competition. They have generated over 600 business ideas for social enterprise.
Our mission is to generate innovative and practical social enterprise ideas through engagement of multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional teams and to encourage young people to implement their ideas. HKSEC 2013 will continue to be open to all Hong Kong post-secondary undergraduate and postgraduate students and fresh graduates to encourage them to employ entrepreneurial approaches to solve real world social problems.
HKSEC has been evolving into a hub connecting social entrepreneurial education, training and implementation for young, passionate students and alumni in Hong Kong. The framework of HKSEC clearly defines the four stages of developing social entrepreneurship through (1) Motivation; (2) Training; (3) Competition; and (4) Implementation. Each stage is accompanies with relevant activities to accomplish the mission of creating more social ventures in Hong Kong. You may find more details about the competition here.
