HKBU Entrepreneurship Bootcamp 2018
To encourage immersive learning for new venture creation and promote entrepreneurship across local and overseas universities, the Knowledge Transfer Office organised the HKBU Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for two consecutive years. Held from 18 to 21 May 2018, this year’s four-day event drew 80 like-minded students from HKBU, University of California, Berkeley, University of Oxford, Nanjing University, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and The Chinese University of Hong Kong to participate in a holistic entrepreneurship training programme.
The Entrepreneurship Bootcamp would not have materialised without the generous support of Professor Shih Wing Ching, JP, Honorary Professor of School of Business of HKBU and Founder of the Shih Wing Ching Foundation. It is hoped that participating students could exchange innovative ideas and get inspired through a comprehensive array of activities, such as interactive discussions, lectures, practical workshops and game sessions.
“For me, the Bootcamp is an important platform to gain cross-disciplinary insights. Without it, I would still be thinking from a narrow perspective.”
Angus Chow Tsz Shing (Government and International Studies, HKBU)
“I learned to collaborate with people, contribute to the team, embrace different opinions, and most importantly, become a confident public speaker in any situation.”
Josh Tong Yeung (Human Resources Management, HKBU)
“Having been to many startup bootcamps around the world, I have to say that this is by far the most impressive one. The organisation, the diversity and the people were world-class. I will give this Bootcamp a five-star rating!”
Kevin Tian Yuan (Business/Mathematics, UC Berkeley)
