Mr Wayne Chau
Founder and CEO, Agent of Change

Wayne is a successful entrepreneur who founded Agent of Change (social enterprise) in March 2014, aiming to alleviate poverty by providing affordable but high-quality daily necessities to the grassroots in Hong Kong. What drives him to set up this social enterprise is his own experience of growing up in poverty. He used to live in subdivided units and even once sleeping on the street. He was also nearly forced out of college due to financial difficulties. By going through all these, he deeply understands the suffering faced by the poor and decided to be the change he wishes to see.

Wayne‘s effort is recognized by the society, winning him numerous awards and opportunities including the International Visitor Leadership Program organized by the U.S. Department of State, Hong Kong Youth Service Award, the Hong Kong Volunteer Award, the Hong Kong Spirit Ambassadors and the 100 winners of China Enterprise Innovation Award. Together with Commercial Radio Hong Kong, he initiated the programme ‘1 Million for the After-80’s dream’, and was also one of the judges of the Hong Kong Social Enterprise Challenge.
