My guest Nydia Zhang is the Co-founder and Chairman of Social Alpha Foundation, a not-for-profit, grant-making platform supporting blockchain education and outreach to empower communities for social good. She is also a board member of the fundraising committee at the Hong Kong Society for the Protection of Children (HKSPC), a member of the Fintech Association of Hong Kong, and sits on the Global Patrons board of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
The Social Alpha Foundation provides no-strings funding to companies and projects that educate communities on blockchain for social change. SAF also gives grants to non-commercial blockchain applications that focus on improving public health, education and the environment.
Successful applicants will receive financial grants ranging from US$10,000 to US$100,000 with no interest charged and no repayment obligations. Funding for grants will be raised in cryptocurrency from individuals and commercial projects that have executed successful token sales, creating a channel for donors to adopt corporate social responsibility practices.
