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.

Many startups were having big problem when choosing incubator/accelerator due to lack of commercial experience and the knowledge of the industrial best practices. This is because some incubators/accelerators actually provide very unfavorable terms and conditions to startups. Those startups that joined these “bad” incubation/acceleration programs might not die in the end but still trapped in a bad situation, e.g. result in giving out more equity share than what other startups normally do.

With hand-on experience on operating an incubator, Ms. Celia Leung will share with us about the landscape and the best practice of the incubator/accelerator operation in HK. By knowing the key value propositions of incubators/accelerators, startups can have higher chance to succeed by maximizing the benefits from the program that they chose after effectively evaluating and comparing different programs.
