HKBU students receive funding from Hong Kong X Foundation to pursue entrepreneurship

浸大學生創新項目獲頒創業啟動資金

Four start-up projects initiated by 11 HKBU students from various disciplines were selected by the Hong Kong X Foundation as the 50 most innovative projects under the FYP+ Supporting Scheme. Each selected project was awarded HK$20,000 start-up capital. In addition, students will be given the opportunity to visit local renowned business enterprises and corporations and learn valuable experiences from industry professionals and veteran entrepreneurs.
 
The four innovative projects of HKBU are: 
 
“e-Farming HK” designed by Xu Zheng (School of Communication, Year 2), which enables Hong Kong people to order fresh vegetables and fruits produced by local farms at a reasonable price through a mobile application;
 
“Statistical Analysis of Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) using data mining methods” formulated by Huang Jingyan (Statistics and Operations Research, Year 4), which aims to further enhance the efficiency and performance of the LIDAR Windshear Alerting System over runways by analysing the runway-specific LIDAR system installed by Hong Kong Observatory at the Hong Kong International Airport;
 
“Development of a novel osteoclast-targeted cathepsin K inhibitor to suppress bone resorption in postmenopausal women” jointly developed by Yang Sichang, Chen Jieli, Luo Jingyuan, Yang Haocheng (Bachelor of Chinese Medicine and Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Science, Year 4), and Teng Shuyan (Bachelor of Pharmacy in Chinese Medicine, Year 3), which studies the development of an osteoclast-targeted cathepsin K to suppress the decreased bone formation found in elderly women; and 
 
- A proposal to set up a professional animation production company to provide services for the biomedical sciences research field by Liu Hesen (School of Business, Year 3), Yang Liu (Academy of Film, Year 4), Luo Jingyuan, Yang Haocheng, Mo Xiaohan (Bachelor of Chinese Medicine and Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Science, Year 4), and Ma Haofei (Bachelor of Chinese Medicine and Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Science, Year 3). They hope to make some changes to the existing knowledge transfer channel as well as to enhance the efficiency and attractiveness of information flow in that field.
 
The FYP+ Supporting Scheme was launched by the Hong Kong X Foundation with the aim of providing local university students an opportunity to demonstrate their innovative talents and realise their creative dreams. The judging panel will later select a final project with the highest commercial potential out of the 50 most innovative projects to receive a seed capital of up to HK$500,000.
 

11位來自浸大不同學系同學構思的四個創業項目,早前獲創科香港基金會FYP+支援計劃選為50個最具創新型項目,每個項目分別獲得港幣2萬元的啟動基金以支持發展,同學並有機會到本地知名企業及創業公司參觀交流,從業界專家身上汲取寶貴的創業經驗。
 
浸大四個創新項目包括:
 
- 傳理學院二年級同學徐崢策劃的「e-Farming HK」,讓市民透過網上應用程式,以優惠價格選購本地新鮮種植的蔬果;
 
- 理學院統計及運籌學四年級同學黃靖儼構思的「Statistical Analysis of Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) using data mining methods」項目,主要研究如何提升香港天文台在香港國際機場跑道設置的激光雷達,使能用於探測機場範圍可出現風切變的功能;
 
- 中醫學學士及生物醫學理學士四年級同學楊思暢、陳潔麗、羅景元、楊昊晟與中藥學學士三年級同學滕書言合作的「Development of a novel osteoclast-targeted cathepsin K inhibitor to suppress bone resorption in postmenopausal women」,目的是研究一種具有破骨細胞靶向的組織蛋白酶K,以抑制老年女性成骨能力下降的問題;
 
- 工商管理學院三年級同學劉河森、電影學院四年級同學楊柳、中醫學學士及生物醫學理學士四年級同學羅景元、楊昊晟、莫小涵與三年級同學馬皓飛籌劃的「生物醫療動畫製作公司創業計劃」,以構建生物醫學科研領域的專業動畫視頻製作服務產業為目標,改變現有的知識傳遞模式,藉以提高該領域資訊的傳遞效率和吸引力。
 
創科香港基金會舉辦FYP+支援計劃的目的是希望本地大學生透過策劃商業企案,展示自己的創意才能和實現創新夢想。評審團隊其後會從50個最具創新型項目中選出一個為最有商業價值的項目,該項目將有機會獲得最高港幣50萬的種子投資。
