Since its inauguration in 2013, the Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Fund (SIE Fund) has served as a catalyst for social innovation, fostering an ecosystem where social entrepreneurs can thrive and help alleviate poverty, promote social inclusion and enhance the well-being and cohesion of society through innovative ideas, products and services. In ten years, the Fund has funded more than 500 projects which benefit over 330,000 people. Each $1 granted yields more than $5 worth of social impact.
2023 marks the 10th anniversary of the SIE Fund. The Social Innovation Exhibition organised by the SIE Fund this year will showcase the achievements of the Fund in the past ten years, with highlights of several pioneering projects, namely the food support collaborative platform FOOD-CO, the Payfor- Success project, the Gerontechnology Platform, and the one-stop search and application platform for assistance programmes CharityToday. Through the Exhibition, visitors can understand more about how the Fund innovates to create impact for poverty alleviation.
