Launched in 2017, the PolyU Student Entrepreneurial Proof-of-Concept (POC) Funding Scheme is one of the University’s key education components designed to nurture students’ entrepreneurship and provide different kinds of support.


The POC Scheme has received an enthusiastic response from students. As of 2021, more than 120 student projects have benefitted from funding of almost HK$1.7 million in total as well as other non-financial support.


What’s more, in 2022 with the generous support from the “Dr Winnie S M Tang-PolyU Student Innovation & Entrepreneurship Scholarship”, the POC Scheme will be enhanced to instil a problem-driven innovation mindset into young talents through experiential learning and student-initiated research and development.


Student project teams will be awarded a scholarship of up to HK$20,000 and entitled to a month-long POC Bootcamp where dedicated team coaches will provide invaluable guidance. The outstanding teams will also gain fast track entry to the PolyU Micro Fund Scheme for further pre-incubation support.
