APSS Postgraduate Students’ Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship

22 Apr 2024


The start-up, named E-Bridge Elderly Services, has been founded by Mrs. Jianling LIANG (DSW Student) and Mr. Alex Jia ZHUANG (Ph.D. Student). E-Bridge serves as a seamless technological platform that promotes cross-border eldercare between Hong Kong seniors and high-end eldercare homes in Mainland cities within the Greater Bay Area. It connects the two groups through 3-D scanning and VR production technology, a senior-friendly website and mobile application, as well as experiential travels.

APSS is very proud to learn that this start-up initiated by two APSS postgraduate students was awarded the Education⁺ and Social Entrepreneurs (EASE) Fund (HK$150,000) and the Best Social Impact Award from The Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK) in March 2024.

Prior to this, the project received the Micro Fund from PolyU and was selected in the Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation’s (HKSTP) Ideation Programme.

APSS is committed to nurturing students to become change makers and future leaders in order to make a difference in the society.   

Congratulations to Jianling and Alex! Both of you make us proud.
