Call for Applications: TSSSU@HKU 2015
Are you aspired by the success of technology companies like Google and BGI which bring real impact to humankind? Do you want to start your own company and convert your new ideas and research achievements into commercially viable products and services?
Here comes an opportunity for you to realize your dream by translating your new technologies into business opportunities.
HKU is now escalating its effort in cultivating the entrepreneurial culture and ecosystem at the University. One of our new endeavors is an award scheme that provides funding support to technology start-up companies formed by HKU members. This is leveraging on a new funding scheme, “Technology Start-up Support Scheme for Universities” (TSSSU), just launched by the Innovation and Technology Commission (ITC) for the six local universities, under which ITC will provide each university an annual funding of up to HK$4 million to encourage technology start-ups. We named our award scheme as “TSSSU@HKU” because it is the HKU implementation of TSSSU. Companies awarded under the scheme will be funded for no more than 3 years with a maximum amount of HK$1.2 million per year.
