The Competition

Ever have an enterprising idea that you just knew was the next killer business? Looking to find a platform that will showcase your entrepreneurial flair? Then the HSBC Young Entrepreneurs Development Council, Young Entrepreneur Challenge 2012 is the stage you've been looking for. Only two stages of competitions stand in your way to achieving greatness.

Stage One of the competition, the Hong Kong Preliminaries, is open to all local tertiary students. The winning team progresses to Stage Two, the Regional Finals, held in Hong Kong, to compete for the "Best of the best" award against other distinguished teams from countries around Asia.

To help participants raise their game against Asia's best, the challenge includes a series of workshops, networking sessions and mentoring programs designed to bolster skills, temper the mindset and get the entrepreneurial spirit flowing.
