HKUST Entrepreneurship Competition 2011 (May 17, Tue)

The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology is pleased to announce the launch of the inaugural Entrepreneurship Competition (EC) to be held on May 17, 2011!

Based on our success in organizing ECs during the last 6 years, and witnessing the growth of entrepreneurial activities in our region, we have expanded the scope of this year’s competition and opened it to all full-time and part-time students at all levels including Post-Doc, alumni, researchers, faculty and staff from all academic departments within HKUST.

While there will not be a limit on the topics for submission, participants are encouraged to focus on the following emerging areas such as, nanotechnology, renewable energy, environment, health, financial services and social business.

In addition to increasing the scope of those who can participate, this year we also have increased the total awards significantly to HKD1,000,000 composed of cash and in-kind contributions.
