HK Tech 300 Seed Fund

The University sets up the HK Tech 300 Seed Fund under the HK Tech 300 Programme. It gives our students a chance to open their minds to endless possibilities and turn their imagination into reality. Each successful team will receive a seed fund of HK$100,000 to develop innovative ideas into a start-up. At the end of the 6-12 months' funding period, eligible teams will be recommended to compete for the HK Tech 300 Angel Fund of up to HK$1M.
