Berkeley Method of Entrepreneurship Bootcamp

13-17 August, 2018

Eight HKBU students obtained sponsorships from donors for participating in BMoE

With the generous support from the HKBU’s alumni and donors, eight outstanding HKBU students from the HKBU Entrepreneurship Bootcamp 2018 have great opportunities to fly out to the US in order to participate in the Berkeley Method of Entrepreneurship Bootcamp(BMoE). The bootcamp was held on 13-17 August 2018, which was organised by Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship & Technology (SCET) of University of California, Berkeley (Cal).

Our students found that the Bootcamp was very immersive and practical as it offered a comprehensive array of activities with different settings including insightful lectures by speakers, interactive game-based exercises, one-on-one mentoring from Cal faculty and other industry experts from Silicon Valley and around the world.

Students Feedback

This is a wonderful opportunity to improve myself. This journey widened my horizon and pushed myself closer to Silicon Valley, real situation of startups and the world stage.
From Miss Carol Yu, BSc (Math & Stats)
It’s really cool that you could build social connections with three strangers who are all foreigners in different countries. Maybe one day in the future, we will have some business collaborations that you may never think of.
From Mr Christopher Zhang, BSc (Comp. Sc.)
I appreciated the diversity of UC Berkeley and even San Francisco, you could see different races and nationalities on the street and inside the campus. The more diverse the society is, the more new idea can be generated and the better solution we have.
From Miss Sarah Chu, BBA (Finance)
Being able to engage in the entrepreneurship bootcamp at UC Berkeley is the most impressive experience during my university life.
From Zakson Feng, BBA (Finance)
The American education culture and atmosphere are more energetic than Hong Kong, the speakers used a lot of demonstrations and games to deliver a single message.
From Miss Talia Chiu, BSocSc (Geography)
Berkeley Entrepreneurship Bootcamp is certainly a life-changing experience. It is one of the best programmes I have participated in my life and a gateway to the kind of person I want to be.
