I led the creation of Media-X Asia, one of the first media and social entrepreneurship fund to be hosted at a University in Asia.
The mission of the fund is to encourage the development of media projects for social good.
My role included developing the proposal, pitching to the donor and successfully raising the funds, and creating the framework for including funding conditions and parameters.
To start this fund, I was able to raise $1.2 million HKD through the generous support of the Xu Family Foundation.
In the first year, we were able to fund two podcast projects. Each project was awarded 150,000 HKD and provided with mentorship and support to develop the project.
