Social Enterprise Summit (SES) is a cross-sector platform to inspire and empower social innovation and social entrepreneurship.
The flagship International Symposium builds on the experiences of over 70 speakers from 15 locations to inspire, innovate, connect and collaborate with delegates from the civic society, businesses, government and academic sectors from Hong Kong, China; Asia Pacific region and beyond to advance positive societal changes.
Community engagement activities are held in eight different districts in Hong Kong during the year to expand the participation and reach beyond the conference rooms, applying knowledge, social entrepreneurship and innovative mindsets to various day to day life settings.
