HKUAA Talk: Innovation and Entrepreneurship Journey @ HKU

HKUAA Talk: Innovation and Entrepreneurship Journey @ HKU
                             (Event supported by HKUGA)


Innovation and entrepreneurship have been considered as one of the main drivers for Hong Kong’s future development. Every company, every institution and most people want to be more innovative and entrepreneurial, but how? Are we sufficiently innovative ourselves and if not, why not? How can we cultivate, foster and sustain our “innovative DNA and energy”, and build an innovatively-minded community among us? What role can the alumni community of HKU play in driving this forward within the HKUAA community and beyond? This talk will look at the development of innovation and entrepreneurship at HKU in the past years, and examine the opportunities and challenges ahead of us.
