Public Outreaching Department
We are a team of university students who have recently joined a case competition named “TECHnopreneurSHIP Challenge” (or “Tech-Ship Challenge”) in the 2019 Fall semester. It is a competition organized by the HKUST Entrepreneurship Centre (EC) and Technology Transfer Centre (TTC), in collaboration with the 4 Departments (Business & Management, Engineering, Science, Humanities & Social Science), as a platform for the university students to design their own business with university technologies.
In this challenge, our Team has chosen “Nanofilm Technology” and has generated some ideas regarding the daily application of this technology, especially the mask production given the current COVID-19 situation in the globe. Luckily, we have been awarded the second runner-up and opportunities have been given to further progress in the next stage.
Currently, we have sincerely invited the UST professors to guide us in the upcoming development progress, given that we would like to launch a start-up company as our main objective. In recent months, we also received an amount from U*Star Award to support the expansion of our business. We really hope that this funding could help us in cooperation with the professors as well as the other business companies.
