To encourage immersive learning for new venture creation and promote entrepreneurship across local and overseas universities, the Knowledge Transfer Office organised its second Entrepreneurship Bootcamp from 18 to 21 May on campus. During the four-day event, 80 like-minded students from HKBU, University of California, Berkeley, University of Oxford, Nanjing University, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and The Chinese University of Hong Kong participated in a holistic entrepreneurship training programme where they formed teams to exchange their creative ideas through a comprehensive array of activities, such as interactive discussions, lectures, practical workshops and game sessions.
 
Over 10 esteemed guest speakers from different professions and industries from Silicon Valley and Hong Kong were invited to share on topics covering entrepreneurship mindset training, design thinking, pitching skills, fascinating startup stories and so forth. 
 
Featured speakers included: Mr Nathan Gold, “The DemoCoach” and a Wall Street Journal designated “Elevator Pitch Guru” who taught participants “How to Captivate any Audience”; Mr Reeve Kwan, Founder of GoGoVan, who shared on “The Way to Unicorn”; Ms Isabel Fan, Regional Director of Tesla Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan, who highlighted the need to “Accelerate the World’s Transition to Sustainable Energy”; Mr Jimmy Tao, CEO of Vitargent (International) Biotechnology Limited, who elaborated on “Vitargent – Biotech Startup in Hong Kong”; and 13-year-old “kidpreneur” and CEO of online educational platform MinorMynas, Miss Hillary Yip, who spoke on “MinorMynas and the aspiring kidpreneur”.

為了促進本地與海外院校學生對企業發展的認識,知識轉移處日前於5月18至21日在校園舉辦第二屆體驗營活動。在為期四日的活動中,80多位來自浸大、美國柏克萊加州大學、英國牛津大學、內地南京大學、香港理工大學和香港中文大學的學生以小組形式,透過連串豐富的互動討論、講座、工作坊和遊戲,互相交流創新的商業意念。
 
逾十位來自美國矽谷和本地不同界別的專業人士應邀為參與同學講解和分享多個創意課題,包括創業思維訓練、設計思考模式、路演技巧、創業勵志故事等。
