Establishment of “BEST Community”

“BEST Community” in which BEST stands for “Business Entrepreneurship Support and Training”, was successfully established on 18 May 2018. This is a community for gathering entrepreneurship stakeholders, alumni and industry partners to support and advance the creativity, entrepreneurship and innovation education at HKBU, and with community at large. The Community will include our current global partner, Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship & Technology (SCET) of UC Berkeley and our long-term or or potential working partners from both academia and industries in Hong Kong and the rest of the world.

Main objectives of BEST Community:

  1. To nurture university students by engaging them in creative, entrepreneurship and innovation activities;
  2. To engage entrepreneurship pioneers from academia and industries to be part of the Community;
  3. To solicit resources for supporting the Community activities and programmes;
  4. To foster collaboration with various partners and stakeholders between Silicon Valley, the Greater Bay Area and Hong Kong in order to support budding entrepreneurs at the Community.
