Mr WONG Ka Chun from the BMSIM Programme received the Championship of BSA Startup Challenge Competition.
Organised by BSA/The Software Alliance, with Intellectual Property Department of HKSAR Government, Customs and Excise Department of the HKSAR Government and Cyberport as co-organisers, the competition aimed at promoting software innovation, entrepreneurship and intellectual property rights among university students. Participants were required to produce a prototype and a marketing plan for their business ideas within 168 hours and to give a presentation to the panel consisting of start-uppers and representatives from major technology companies and government officials.
The team created a webpage entitled “TravelUs” which serves as an agency to let travellers select their preferred tour guide in advance and tailor-make their itinerary in order to explore the local culture of Hong Kong. This competition not only helped to expand participants’ networks, but also provided important insights into starting a new business from scratch.
