Application Tips:

As we all know, receiving government funding through the Distance Business Program requires going through a complex process. However, the application process for Facebook's sponsorship is relatively simple. You only need to upload three company documents and answer five questions to submit your application. Due to the high number of applicants, the key to increasing your chances of success is to carefully consider the purpose and significance of Facebook's sponsorship in this case.

By examining the direction of the questions, it is evident that Facebook aims to support the Hong Kong community through this funding program, including the ecosystem of small and medium-sized enterprises and the sectors in need of assistance during the pandemic. This aligns with Facebook's core business philosophy of helping small and medium-sized enterprises promote their businesses. This program can enhance Facebook's impact on small and medium-sized enterprises. We anticipate that Facebook will select small businesses that have meaningful business operations and can contribute to the continued operation of other small and medium-sized enterprises or create value for vulnerable communities in society as the recipients of the sponsorship.

In fact, these questions are meaningful because as business operators, we must consider how we can create value for the community and other small businesses rather than solely seeking profit for ourselves. It also reflects our company's brand value and philosophy. It is worth pondering for everyone.
