Entrepreneurship Development

The Office of Student Development (OSD) strives to promote the entrepreneurship development of PolyU students. We believe that every PolyU student should embrace the entrepreneurial spirit, which includes the ability to innovate for advancement and solve problems, the capacity to take risks, the commitment to “do well” and excel in his/her undertaking, and the vision to “do good” for the betterment of society. We commit to arouse students’ awareness and incentive in entrepreneurial spirit by providing fundamental entrepreneurship learning opportunities and promoting the exchange of inventive ideas and entrepreneurial experiences.
