Don’t let your dreams be dreams, go and catch it! HKU launched the entrepreneurship seed fund “DreamCatchers 100K” in 2016 to support students and young graduates to kick-start their startup ventures. Winning teams will be awarded cash prizes up to HK$100,000 and HKU iDendron co-working space membership.
How can we live longer and healthier? Healthy ageing relies on quality, cost-effective preventive care, relevant personalized health knowledge and behavioral change, and improved timely access to quality “sick care”. From AI-assisted screening to precision medicine, and remote sensing to assistive robotics, innovative MedTech solutions can enhance the quality of life for the ageing population and create immense social impact. However, innovating in health is challenging, requiring interdisciplinary teams of medical professionals, engineers, developers, and designers to tackle unmet needs.
The DreamCatchers and the Faculty of Business and Economics have been co-organizing a FREE ten-week workshop to enhance HKU members’ skills in building startup business for innovations.
