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.

Pitching to investors (either individual angels or institutional venture capital firms) for funding are one of the ”must do” events for most startups. However, early stage startups in Hong Kong normally can only improve their pitching skill by “learn as you grow” because there are not many training opportunities for them to prepare themselves before meeting investors.

In this seminar , Dr. Samson TAM is bringing his meeting room to HKU to conduct a real pitching meeting with two early stage startups. Dr. Tam will share with us how he evaluates these two startups and what are the factors that he uses to make his decision on each investment.
