Organised by The Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce (HKGCC), the HKGCC Business Case Competition links students and businesses for the exchange of ideas. Contestants were required to design creative solutions to crack different business cases in five tracks. Only the best teams from each track had the opportunity to pitch their projects to the panel of judges representing five influential corporates. The duo formed by COMP undergraduate students, AU Lok To Jack and YU Man Fai Daniel, won the 2nd runner-up in the “Chinachem Group” track with their project “Ninaland”. Both of them are year-three students studying BSc in Financial Technology and Artificial Intelligence currently.
Ninaland is an innovative solution using the non-fungible token technology to promote sustainability and enrich communities, as well as to connect visitors to Nina Park - the first museum-grade fossil garden that will open this Autumn. Jack and Daniel shared that they have gained precious real-life experience from this competition and learnt a lot from the industrial mentors. Their biggest takeaways from the competition were the improved tech mindset and international friendship. Their journey climaxed in their visit to the ChinaChem office where they met their mentors in-person.
HKGCC Business Case Competition was an open competition for tertiary students and recent graduates in Hong Kong. Students will learn from veteran business executives and be challenged by a panel of leading industry professionals, which is an experience rarely gained outside the classroom.
