Peter Jones established the Peter Jones Foundation in 2005 to empower and encourage students through enterprise education. The Peter Jones Foundation’s enterprise curriculum is an after-school program that supports students to ideate and realize their businesses. Students will work in teams of 3-4 to come up with a business plan, and once approved, can receive a goodwill loan* of up to $500HKD per student over a semester to realize their business.

The winners will be judged by the success of their business, social impact, originality and several other criteria.
* A goodwill loan means no refund or interest is required even if the student loses money in the business.
