Training workshops

Regular training events are held to equip Enactus members with the skills to start their own social innovation projects. Topics range from project ideation to presentation skills to design thinking.

Regional Competition

At least one team from each Enactus partner institution present their projects to a panel of judges. The top two institutions will represent Hong Kong to compete with champions from other regions of China in the National Competition in Shanghai.

Project funding

A seed funding is allocated to selected teams for trial, experimentation and project development. Further funding is awarded to the top three teams of the Regional Competition for project implementation and ongoing development.

Business Advisory Program

This program engages corporate volunteers in social innovation projects initiated by Enactus members. Advisors contribute their business acumen to help students improve their projects by giving them feedback and suggestions.

Social Business Mentorship Program

Workplace volunteers are recruited to provide advice on career direction and life goals to tertiary students. Mentors contribute their life experience as well as work experience to help students better prepare for the workplace and plan for the future.

Exchange activities

Selected Enactus members are sponsored to take part in the national training in Shanghai during the summer holiday, and to join as observers at the Enactus World Cup which is held in a different country each September.
