Overview

Make Money and Make Impact


Technology is playing an increasingly important role in enabling, motivating, empowering, customizing and democratising learning, as well as enhancing its effectiveness. The US$6 trillion global education market is full of investment opportunities because education is ripe for disruption. The growth in education technology is also being driven by an immense need to reskill the workforce in the digital age.


This workshop will be of interest to angel investors, venture capitalists, fund managers, family offices and foundations seeking to support meaningful social causes. You will learn from pioneers in ed tech investment in Hong Kong on the opportunities in this arena and why it is an attractive and meaningful proposition if you would like to make an impact with your money, either as an investor or as a philanthropist. The workshop will also unveil Esperanza's new initiative to propel ed tech development in HK and how you can get involved. You may also identify potential partners for future co-investment opportunities.

Education Technology

Technology is playing an increasingly important role in enabling, motivating, empowering, customizing and enhancing the effectiveness of learning, through the applications of mobile technologies, AI, data analytics, reality technologies, IoT, robotics and MOOC platforms etc. Technology is also democratising education by improving the accessibility and affordability of quality education.


The US$6 trillion global education market is full of investment opportunities because education is ripe for disruption. The growth in education technology is also being driven by an immense need to reskill the workforce in the digital age. The market for education technology is projected to grow 11 per cent annually by 2025, according to global education market intelligence platform HolonIQ. China attracted more than half of the world's venture capital investments in education last year, and has been the biggest destination of such funds in the last five years. But Hong Kong has been falling behind the Mainland and other developed economies in the adoption of education technology.

Investing for Impact

There have been growing worldwide interests in 'impact investment' - investment that generates both financial return and social good such as education. Proof is building that companies that successfully implement strategies to create profit-driven social impact can deliver superior shareholder returns. More and more philanthropists have also incorporated impact investment alongside grant making to better support the needs of social purpose organisations at different growth stages and to structure their portfolio for maximum impact.
