About Entrepreneurship Center

HKUST Entrepreneurship Center (EC), established in 1999 initially as Entrepreneurship Program, is a center to support innovation and entrepreneurship in the campus. It runs activities and funds to foster an entrepreneurial campus and cultivate a risk-taking value-creation mindset. Through direct encouragement and engagement of the HKUST community (students, alumni, professors and support staff), we strive to nurture next-generation entrepreneurs whose companies make commercial, social or cultural impacts for the economic and social development of Hong Kong and other regions.
