“Being grateful no matter in whatever moment. Keep going as long as there is still the way.” said Hercules CHAN, the founder of Void, after receiving the award. He is giving big thanks for the support from Prof. Gary CHAN, who is Hercules’ mentor and the director of HKUST Entrepreneurship Center. Hercules, who describes himself as an ordinary student with stubborn persistence on target given to himself, has some words for HKUST students, “Never give up and keep going in whatever stage after you find your drive.”
