Partnership with Fudan University
PolyU partners with Fudan University to jointly design a series of entrepreneurship education programmes for young entrepreneurs in Hong Kong and Shanghai. The first programme - High Potential Entrepreneurial Leadership (HiPEL) Programme was launched in the summer of 2013, in which a group of 30 Hong Kong and Shanghai entrepreneurs participated. The Programme aims to further build their entrepreneurial leadership and to re-align their business models to achieve sustainable development. Following the encouraging success in the last summer, the Programme will continue in the coming summers.
Apart from the HiPEL Programme, a Shanghai-Hong Kong University Students Entrepreneurship Bootcamp is organized in the summer.

A series of out-of-classroom learning opportunities as extra-mural activities to augment traditional classroom learning:

From Research to Business
A month-long training programme: From Research to Business: Nurturing Techno-preneurs was organized specifically for research students with a “flip classroom” approach, using both online learning tool and face-to-face workshops. Participants appreciated the opportunities and what it would take to commercialize their research outcome.
