About FSI

For over 7 years we have either started, incubated or assisted a range of early-stage social enterprises in Hong Kong and beyond. Through that process, we have developed substantial experience and expertise in what social enterprises and entrepreneurs need and the challenges they face. As a result, FSI was established.

Our Focus

Our Mission

  • To magnify scalable social impact by leveraging the shared resources of our community.

  • To help the youth of today — through internships, education, incubation — to become the problem-solvers of tomorrow.

  • To enhance access to funding for select early-stage businesses, thereby increasing their long-term financial sustainability (through crowdfunding, direct funding, events).

  • To foster knowledge exchange and mentorship between experienced professionals and would-be changemakers (through board of advisors, seminars, publications, media, corporate engagement, events, volunteering and training).

  • To nurture an enterprising culture dedicated to creating and maximizing impact.

Our Resources for Shared Impact

Coworking Space

Our coworking space, conveniently located just a few minutes’ walk from the HKU MTR Station, is available to aspiring social entrepreneurs, offering them a low-cost alternative in a city of high rent.

Knowledge Sharing

From our network of professionals and corporate clients, aspiring social entrepreneurs can benefit with the knowledge and expertise essential to business operations, from identifying company structure, building business finance model, to formulating and executing business strategy.

Fundraising Events

Events are held to fundraise and raise awareness for our social enterprises. These events, in turn, serve as team-building activities for corporate clients who donate financial resources and manpower for a good cause.

Mentorship

Our extensive network of professionals enables us to connect social entrepreneurs with prospective clients, funders, partners, and volunteers. Once the social enterprise can stand steadily on its own feet, we help it to further scale and expand regionally through several fundraising vehicles.
