“Project LEARNT” Awarded Additional Funding for Advancement

“Project LEARNT”, co-founded by Dr Wilbert Law, Assistant Professor of the Department of Psychology, Mr Jack Wan (an alumnus of BEd (Honours) (Secondary) Programme) and Mr Jeffrey Ho, was one of the winning projects of the University’s Education and Social Entrepreneurs (EASE) Fund Scheme in 2018/19. “Project LEARNT” joined the idea competition “Good Seed 2020”, supported by the Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Fund of the Government, and won an award of HK$200,000 in July this year.

As a social enterprise, “Project LEARNT” makes use of the slow periods of a restaurant as a co-learning space for tutorials and other learning activities, and recruits students in non-day schools to run the business. This start-up is the first of its kind in Hong Kong, by providing students with a comfortable study environment at a relatively low cost and employment opportunities; teachers and private tutors with an expansion of their student base in the co-learning space by instant matching; and restaurants with an extra source of income by expanding their customer base.
