PolyU alumni share insights on successful entrepreneurship
Three distinguished PolyU startup founders enlightened some 100 seminar participants with their invaluable insights on the opportunities and challenges of entrepreneurship.
These alumni are running startups offering products from a global all-in-one logistics solution platform, AI-enabled voicebots, to on-site recycling waste sorters. Despite their different business nature, their outstanding problem-solving skills and determined mindset are similar.
Mr Lam Wun-chi, Co-founder and CEO of Spaceship, emphasised the importance of trial and error and being proactive in experiencing new things. Founder and CFO of Asiabots Mr Chris Shum stressed the importance of understanding business value and the impact of technology on competitiveness. Mr Declan Leung Chunhin, Co-founder of Plaper (HK), highlighted the need for good industrial partners and the ability to seize opportunities. They expressed gratitude for PolyU’s support, including financial resources, hardware facilities, and business networks, which helped them realise their entrepreneurial dreams.
Hosted by the Alumni Affairs Office, Knowledge Transfer and Entrepreneurship Office and the Industrial Centre, the seminar aimed to connect alumni and enhance the development of PolyU Entrepreneurship Alumni NetworK (PEAK).
