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.
