About Future Education Foundation

Future Education Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in Hong Kong by MindWorks Capital in 2019. The founding members are committed to investing in non-conventional educational opportunities that enhance the quality of life of generations to come.

''The world of work is drastically changing due to continuous technological breakthroughs. Tasks that are historically performed by humans are increasingly replaced by machines and algorithms. It is forecasted that globally up to 800 million workers will have their jobs automated by 2030. Hong Kong, which traditionally relies on aging industries, is left vulnerable with few initiatives to combat this epidemic. " said David Chang, Founder of MindWorks Capital and Future Education Foundation.

MindWorks Capital is a global advisory firm established in 2014 that seeks to make investments in the technology sector. As a post-seed stage investor, they have helped their portfolio companies expand operations into 16 countries, creating more than 8000 innovation-related jobs with over 500 jobs in Hong Kong alone.

Testimonials

I was from a non-tech background and wanted to transition into the tech field due to my interest in technology and the future of work. I tried to find work in startups but it was difficult as they lack technical persons and are oversupplied with applicants from business and operations side. As such, I took up basic programming language but it was insufficient to equip me with the knowledge to be work-ready. I came across the scholarship provided by the Future Education Foundation and decided to sign up for it - I am so glad I did because now I can understand what tech co-founders are explaining to me about their products and services. I am also able to understand the difficulties in implementing certain features and functionalities and discuss with startups how they can make their tools better.

I applied to the Future Education Foundation Scholarship in other to equip myself with Data Science/Machine learning skillset. I must admit that the 4 months duration spent afforded me the opportunity to get an offline experience to collaborate with fellow students and apply Data Science/ Machine learning solutions to real-world problems.
