Student delegation comes third in Enactus China Regional Competition

學生代表團喜獲創行世界盃中國站香港區域比賽季軍

A team of seven HKBU students brought home the 2nd runner-up prize of the Enactus China Regional Competition 2015 held in Shenzhen with their creative business plan.

The team comprised of Jack Yip (double degrees in English and Education, Year 2), Kelly Wong (Applied Economics, Year 2), Betty Li (Accounting, Year 2), Kong Chak-ming (BBA, Year 1), Yang Yunjie (Master of Information and Computer Technology), Aquila Tam (Human Resources Management, Year 3), and Tsui Ka-ho (Government and International Studies, Year 3).

In view of the time-consuming delivery process and high transportation cost of sending packages from overseas to Hong Kong, the team came up with an idea called “Care Package – Hoolove Box”. This online ordering platform provides overseas customers with a convenient method of sending gifts to their families and friends in Hong Kong. Apart from offering fair-trade products, the platform allows customers to choose packaging and special value-added items such as cards and flowers.

The platform would create employment opportunities for socially vulnerable groups. The team hoped that through this online gift delivery service, they could be instrumental in sharing love, connecting people around the world and providing job opportunities for the unemployed.

The Enactus National Competitions showcase how students are transforming lives and enabling progress through entrepreneurial action. Enactus teams will compete across 36 countries where the quality and impact of their projects will be evaluated by business leaders serving as judges. The champion of each national competition will then be selected to represent their country at the Enactus World Cup to be held in Johannesburg, South Africa in October. This year, a total of 25 tertiary institutions from the Chinese mainland and Hong Kong participated in the China Regional Competition. The China National Competition will be held from 14-15 May.

七位浸大生早前組成隊伍參加在深圳舉行的2015年創行世界盃中國站香港區域比賽,憑著他們的創意商業計劃贏得比賽季軍。

得獎同學包括葉永恒 (英國語言文學及英語教學教育雙學位二年級)、黃頌婷 (應用經濟學二年級)、李玥 (會計學二年級)、江澤鳴 (工商管理一年級)、楊雲傑 (資訊及電腦科技碩士)、譚為忠 (人力資源管理三年級) 和徐嘉豪 (政治及國際關係三年級)。

有見於現時由海外寄往香港的包裹郵寄服務非常費時,而且運送成本高昂,因此團隊構思以「心念盒」為名的網上預定包裹系統,為海外顧客提供一個便利的途徑,以選取禮品送贈予在港的親友。顧客可經系統訂購公平貿易的相關產品,亦可選取加以特色包裝如心意卡或鮮花。計劃會聘請弱勢社群負責禮品包裝和包裹運送的工作。同學們希望透過服務計劃宣揚愛與關懷,連繫世界各地的人士,並為失業人士提供就業機會。

創行國家地區比賽旨在展示學生如何透過商業行動改善和促進社群的生活。比賽分別於36個國家舉行,參賽同學會與所屬地區的參賽隊伍進行較量,由不同的商業領袖和專業人士組成團隊進行評審。每個國家的冠軍隊伍會自動獲選代表其國家參加於10月在南非約翰尼斯堡舉行的創行世界盃賽事。今年的創行世界盃中國站香港區域比賽合共有25間大專院校組成隊伍參加,全國總決賽將於5月14至15日舉行。
