Event Details

Have you been hearing the term "Social Innovation" a lot but you don't hear enough about what it actually means? 

Well, UnLtd Hong Kong is happy to clear things up for you! 

We are hosting our first "Intro to Social Innovation" workshop on the 23rd of April at The Good Lab from 7.30pm to 9.30pm!

What's happening?

Not only will Kelvin Cheung, CEO of UnLtd Hong Kong, be speaking on the topic using very authentic examples of what's being done to bring changes to communities around the world, we are also happy to be presenting to you a very real life example of someone who's been there and done it,  in Hong Kong!

Meet Julia SunShe will be speaking about her online platform, Sticky Rice Love, which provides reliable sexual health education to young Cantonese speakers in Hong Kong.  Learn about how they started with an idea and then through their work, ended up in six months taking up a whole page in the SCMP! 

The Series

This belongs to the first cycle of the 2-part workshop series on Social Innovation which UnLtd will be bringing to you throughout the rest of the year 2015. 

Every cycle of our series basically includes 2 main workshops:

1) Intro to Social Innovation 
 
Duration: 1.5 hours. 
Participants: No max Capacity.
Next Stops: Good Lab/Mad, HKU, British Council 
This is designed to give definition to the term "Social Innovation", which includes offering international examples of impact projects that are bound to inspire. We will also have speakers from the local context to offer you real life examples of what is currently done in Hong Kong. For those who feel inspired and wish to do more, we also offer the next steps for you to going further from this.  

2) Idea Generation Workshop
 
Duration: 3-4 hours. 
Participants: 8-10 teams max.
Vanues: The Good Lab 
This is designed to give potential innovators the tools to 'prepare' their ideas and bring them into reality by starting their own projects. We'll go through things like 'knowing your target audience via the Empathy Map', the Business Model Canvas, SMART goals, and other tips. The workshop will have a limited capacity, with the possible outcome of individuals or teams receving an invitation to go through "pitch-training" sessions that ultimately leads to including you in our Try It Do It incubation program, where we offer you funding, a year of mentorship and all other kinds of support!
