Alumni Startup Star
With Hong Kong being one of Asia’s most dynamic startup destinations, some of our alumni have already initiated their own ventures and established their own startups, building on the knowledge and experience they gained during their time at HKU Business School. They are our #startupstars.
HKU Business School Alumni Startup Star is an initiative to promote entrepreneurship energy, innovation and connection. By sharing real life stories of entrepreneurial alumni in all stages of their startup journeys, we hope to foster a startup community connecting alumni, students and faculty members to inspire and support each other, work together to turn innovative ideas into reality and create a positive impact towards society.
Contact us if you are pursuing an entrepreneurial career path or launching your own business, be our #startupstars!
