The Faculty of Science is delighted to launch a new Entrepreneurship Seminar Series for ALL students, staff and alumni, aimed at providing training for those interested in business ventures.

A group of professionals, including founders of startups and law firms, business consultants, angel investors and partners of investment fund, will share their expertise and invaluable experience in areas from idea formation to exit strategy. The Entrepreneur Seminar Series is a “Must Go To” event for those who are going to start or have already started a business venture.

Most startup founders will inevitably try to get funding support from investors either right in the beginning for setting up the operation or in the mid way for expanding the operation. The best preparation for pitching is to know the judging criteria of the investors. Dr. Lo shares with us how he evaluates startup companies and what are the criteria that he uses to make a decision on each investment with specific examples of 布比Bubi,  波奇Boqii, 可以科技Keyi, PPTV, CryptoBLK from his company investment portfolio.
