The Entrepreneurship Support Week, organized by CUHK InnoPort, went smoothly from 17-21 April 2023.

Our booth offered information about funding opportunities, entrepreneurship competitions and education programs to promote entrepreneurship among students at the University. Teams from ORKTS and partners* then engaged with those who were interested in I&E (Innovation & Entrepreneurship) and encouraged them to get started on the journey. We also had CUHK Student Startups (Pi teams) Vivablee, Definer and READily exhibit their products and share their startup experiences. We also appreciated the onsite support of our partners and their promotional materials, like videos, leaflets, and booklets.

A new membership scheme called “InnoBuddies & InnoPeers” was introducted inviting the students to visit our coworking space in InnoPort and keeping them updated on I&E information. Around 300+ members were recruited during the week through online and on-site registration. Among them, around 100 members are looking for internship opportunities, around 50 are interested in technology innovation funding programs and 50 members are interested in social innovation funding programs. We will soon organize different I&E activities in response to their feedback.
