About HKBU Entrepreneurship Bootcamp

Learn and Exchange Ideas with UC Berkeley Entrepreneurship Consultants

With an aim to facilitate immersive learning for a new venture creation, the Business Entrepreneurship Support and Training Programme (BEST) under Knowledge Transfer Office, is going to select like-minded students with their own business ideas to participate in a holistic entrepreneurship bootcamp where participants can form teams, pitch ideas, attend interactive lectures, such as Design Thinking, and workshop conducted by UC Berkeley consultants, receive one-on-one mentoring from industry experts and learn in a collaborative environment.

The entrepreneurship consultants from one of the premier institutions in Silicon Valley, UC Berkeley, will fly over to Hong Kong and offer lectures and interactive game-based exercises to our participants. This will be a good opportunity for connecting all the professions together in promoting entrepreneurial culture in the community.
