CityU and HKSTP jointly incubate high potential start-up projects

CityU is the first partner of Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP)'s in a joint university incubation programme. Over an 18 month period, CityU and HKSTP have designed and improved the incubation programme which has now been extended to two sister universities - Hong Kong Polytechnic University and Hong Kong Baptist University.

Under the programme, CityU will recommend technical start-ups with high potential founded by students, alumni or staff to be the incubator at the newly launched Lion Rock 72 located in the InnoCentre, Kowloon Tong. Selected teams will enjoy free working space, access to incubation programme facilities, including financial subsidies and mentorship, and also enjoy other value-added services from both CityU and HKSTP.

The incubation programme is embraced at CityU as part of the unique CityU Innopreneurship Ecosystem i-i-123 which represents Innovation Commons, Incubator, and 1-2-3 stages of our funding schemes. Please visit the Knowledge Transfer Office website for details.
