The Tri-Sector Leaders Programme brings participants from businesses, NGOs and government together to get inspired by the latest Social Innovation case studies from around the world to co-create new solutions of Shared Value for Hong Kong’s future.
We live in a rapidly changing world. In face of increasing social and economic inequality fueled by a growing mistrust between different sectors, how can our government, businesses and the social impact sector reignite the collaborative spirit to create solutions for a better tomorrow?
Over this two-day immersive workshop, 40 leaders from different sectors will gather to challenge existing assumptions about current problems, allow their minds to be opened to new solutions and be inspired by new approaches to overcome the currently entrenched social issues.
First presented by Professor Michael E. Porter and Mark R. Kramer in the Harvard Business Review in 2006, Shared Value is created when companies recognize that there are tremendous opportunities for innovation and growth in treating social problems as business objectives.
Over the past 3 years, the Good Lab has been home to multiple leading social enterprises in Hong Kong, gathering knowledge, networks and expertise in the field of Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship. Embodying the spirit of collaboration at the heart of our work, the Good Lab stands at the intersection between the government, businesses and social impact organisations, working to build dialogue, strengthen capacity and co-create new innovations. Our founding members include Dialogue Experience, Social Ventures Hong Kong, Make a Different Institute, Social Enterprise Summit, Education For Good, and Solution on Wheels.
“Fifteen years ago, when people asked bank CEOs to get involved in their communities, they said that’s not what their shareholders want. Today, they’re not only investing in their communities, they’re partnering with governments and non-profits to jointly solve problems on a community level. That’s why, to truly capitalize on the unprecedented opportunity created by the alignment of the public, private and philanthropic sectors, we need leaders who have also evolved in the same way.”
– Dominic Barton, Global Managing Partner of McKinsey & Company
Gifted with the skills to transition fluidly between sectors, Tri-Sector Leaders work at the intersection between the Governments, NGOs and Corporations, helping to forge partnerships that leverage each sector’s strengths and capabilities to resolve Hong Kong’s most pressing challenges.

Week 5 – Prototype testing clinic
10 am to 6 pm, 3 December 2016
Instructors this week – Max Leung and Kelvin Cheung, joined by social innovator guests.
All good plans need to be tested to know if they will work. We will invite social innovators in with experience in the field to give comments and feedback on your prototype. You will also have the opportunity to go back into the field to ask the community what they think of your ideas and your approach? The invaluable feedback you will get will allow you to receive critical information on your prototype. It’s your chance to tweak your idea and get ready to present your idea next week to the public. A short workshop will be conducted here to give you the basic tips on presenting and pitching.
Week 6 – Idea pitch and celebrations
7:30 pm to 9:30 pm, 9 December 2016
Course leaders this week – Ada Wong
Just like that, we’ve reached the final week of your social innovation journey! Each team will pitch their ideas and their progress to invited guests and fellow classmates. For teams with impactful and effective ideas who wish to continue, we won’t leave you here, we’ll connect you with the appropriate organisations and funding opportunities available to you so you can take your idea to the next level. By the end of this session, all classmates will officially become Social Innovation Classroom fellows!

Around the world, we have seen the younger and older generations divided, resulting from differences in political views, culture, career approaches, family values and other choices. In Hong Kong, the relationship between generations has been shaken to the core, especially through social and political movements. What is constructing the way younger and older generations look at one another? Is it possible that our differences can be bridged by shared values, and different generations can collaborate to bring creative solutions to our city? In this one-day workshop, engage in dialogue with young changemakers. Listen, be curious, break assumptions and get inspired on what the future of Hong Kong can be when we all work together.
