SUMMARY : Hong Kong Baptist University is SCET’s Global Partner representative from Hong Kong. This engagement provides the opportunities for –

• Bi-directional exchange of students.
• Access to developing internship opportunities at Berkeley and in the Silicon Valley.
In mid-August, 12 HKBU students travelled to The University of California, Berkeley (UC Berkeley) to participate in a five-day intensive Bootcamp. For this learning trip of a lifetime, generously sponsored by Professor Shih Wing Ching and organised by the Knowledge Transfer Office (KTO), they had to first pitch their ideas successfully at the three-day HKBU Entrepreneurship Bootcamp 2017 held on HKBU campus earlier in April. Representing HKBU were three student teams and one start-up team. The student teams included WorldClass, an online tutorial platform; Homeal which uses a sharing economy model to connect cooks to customers; and Ledo Ads, an end-to-end service for placing advertisements on previously idle spaces such as restaurant tabletops. Cathay Photonics, the start-up team and namesake of the company set up by Professor Cheah Kok-wai, Chair Professor of Physics, outpitched 22 other teams from 20 countries.


香港浸會大學是加州大學伯克萊分校Sutardja創業科技中心其中一個環球合作夥伴。這個合作關係為浸大學生帶來以下機遇 –

• 學生的雙向學術交流
• 開拓學生到加州伯克萊分校及矽谷的實習機會
八月中旬,12位浸大同學前往美國柏克萊加州大學參與為期五天的密集式訓練營活動。是次活動由施永青教授慷慨贊助,並由知識轉移處主辦,是難能可貴的學習機會。同學們須先在四月於浸大校園舉辦為期三天的2017年浸大創業訓練營中,成功推銷其創業構思,方可參與是次密集式訓練。

代表浸大的參加隊伍包括三支學生隊和一支初創企業隊。學生隊計有提供網上補習平台的WorldClass、採用共享經濟模式為顧客和廚師提供互連服務的「家餚」,以及提供善用閒置空間(如食肆餐桌面)作廣告位之一站式服務的「呢度廣告」。以物理系講座教授謝國偉教授成立的公司名稱命名的「國泰光電」初創企業隊,表現優秀,壓倒來自20個國家的22支隊伍。
