"I think this is a good event. Before I come to it, I only think that Entrepreneurship is about start-up, and what that guest speakers are going to say, is how to grasp opportunity, like how to start a business right after graduate. But then after the whole event, I got the opinion that we have to be well prepared before we start-up, like we can have work experience before we try to start new business. I like this event and hope to join more"

Lily Suen


"The objectives of this program are consistent with the curriculum reform which emphasizes career-related experience which is an essential element of education in the 21st century. Without hesitation, I gave it my support. I wish more companies and schools will participate in this meaningful program."

Mrs. Fanny Law


"This program has enabled our colleagues to reach out to the young people in Hong Kong today and understand their thinking. For our colleagues, this presents an ideal opportunity to experience something quite extraordinary outside of work."
