HKBU students win HK$100,000 Cyberport Creative Micro Fund
31 Oct 2018
Two HKBU student teams have been selected to join the fintech-focused Cyberport University Partnership Programme 2018.
Praised for their creative entrepreneurial ideas, one of the teams -- named “ivi” -- successfully outshone the other 19 participating teams from six local universities. The team won seed-funding of HK$100,000 from the Cyberport Creative Micro Fund and were also awarded a fast-track interview opportunity for the Cyberport Incubation Programme.
The award-winning team was composed of Charisse Mok (English Language and Literature, Year 4), Thomas Huang (Master of Science in Applied Economics, Year 1), and Zakson Feng (Finance, Year 4).
During the programme, participants underwent intensive training and mentorship from industry elites and took part in a boot camp for a week hosted by the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation. At the final stage, they were given the opportunity to present their innovative business prototypes to a panel of judges.
