IfE has long adopted a “PolyU + X” partnership strategy in its different entrepreneurship programmes, drawing synergy from like-minded partners for value-added collaborations. Through the newly established PolyU InnoHub, PolyU aims to further cultivate and facilitate regional community partnerships and collaborations to drive innovation and entrepreneurship at a regional level.
Through collaboration with entrepreneurial intermediaries (e.g. HKSTP, STEFG) and angel investors (e.g. Hong Kong Business Angel Network), PolyU has been able to launch different programmes with different focuses in the past few years to support young start-ups and entrepreneurs.
