14 HKUST projects were selected as Top 40 in the FYP+ Supporting Scheme

HKUST projects had an outstanding performance in the FYP+ Supporting Scheme

The FYP+ Supporting Scheme is a charity program organized by Hong Kong X Foundation to promote innovation and entrepreneurship. This year, the Scheme received 175 applications and 40 projects were selected, in which 35% were from HKUST. All selected teams were awarded with HK$20,000 as well as a series of tailor-made startup trainings, including one of the Innonights about starting up a business in Greater Bay Area, which was co-organized with HKUST Entrepreneurship Center. Apart from the trainings, teams were also given opportunity to meet with profound mentors to gain insights from their experience.

The teams’ efforts were first showcased at the HKTDC Entrepreneurship Day by pitching their innovative ideas to judges as a midterm evaluation and the top 5 awardees received an additional HK$10,000 prize, among them were 3 UST teams. The Scheme eventually came to an end with a final pitching in which the best 3 projects won an additional HK$50,000 grants with 2 projects from HKUST.
