HKBU signs global partnership agreement with UC Berkeley to promote entrepreneurship

浸大與柏克萊加州大學簽署夥伴合作協議  舉辦聯校體驗營推廣創業文化

HKBU has signed a global partnership agreement with the Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology (SCET) of the University of California, Berkeley (UC Berkeley) with the aim of facilitating academic collaboration, faculty and student exchange as well as information sharing in the areas of entrepreneurship and technology. HKBU is among the 10 Global Alliance Partners of UC Berkeley’s SCET.

To encourage immersive learning for new venture creation, the Knowledge Transfer Office recently organised a three-day entrepreneurship bootcamp on campus. Eleven UC Berkeley students and 29 HKBU students shared and exchanged their creative business ideas through an array of comprehensive activities such as interactive discussions, lectures, practical workshops and game sessions.

Professor Ikhlaq Sidhu and Ms Gigi Wang, two veteran entrepreneurship consultants from UC Berkeley’s SCET, were invited to share their profound knowledge with the students at the bootcamp.

浸大早前與美國柏克萊加州大學Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology(SCET)簽署環球夥伴合作協議,以促進兩校的學術協作與師生互訪,以及在創業與科技層面的交流。浸大是全球10所與柏克萊加州大學SCET結成聯盟夥伴的院校之一。


兩位來自SCET的資深專家顧問Ikhlaq Sidhu教授與Gigi Wang女士並應邀與學生分享創業知識。
