Youth Matters
Incubating innovation
HKFYG Jockey Club Social Innovation Centre now officially open
A potent, cost-effective, automated platform for launching a marketing campaign; an advance notice system for MTR-passengers with the fastest routes to destinations; sophisticated professional online training; and empowered environment education that reconnects people with nature. These are a few examples of the services from startup companies now working out of the HKFYG Jockey Club Social Innovation Centre.

Fairone, Pokeguide, iMasteRoom and Reconnect, the four mentioned above, have the talent to leverage technology to find new solutions to old problems. In 2016, Youth Matters will tell you how companies like these work: creating social change, finding novel solutions, meeting unmet needs with new ideas, all with Federation support and its valuable partnership programmes.
