Supported by Cyberport Creative Micro Fund (CCMF), the Cyberport Greater Bay Area Young Entrepreneurship Programme (GBA YEP) is again inviting applications.
GBA YEP is an invaluable opportunity for young people aged 18 to 30 from Hong Kong, Macau, and Guangdong. The programme allows them to engage in cross-regional I&T collaboration, launch innovative projects, expand their horizons, and get a taste of entrepreneurship.
Participants can expect a highly rewarding journey. First, from 19-21 January 2024, they will attend an entrepreneurship boot camp, where they will learn about business strategies, gain entrepreneurial and leadership skills, understand the region’s business and investment landscapes, and visit tech companies. They will then form teams with peers from other cities. Each team will develop a digital tech project for applying the CCMF. 10 project applications will be selected according to the vetting criteria. Each successful project application will be qualified for a grant of HK$100,000 to implement the project over a six-month period. During this time, participants will also receive training, mentorship, and business advice from Cyberport and other programme co-organisers, as well as access to a supportive network of programme alumni.
Since its inception, GBA YEP has welcomed more than 2,500 young people from over 50 higher education institutions across the region. Nearly 200 projects have secured seed funding from the CCMF, and dozens of innovators have advanced to the Cyberport Incubation Programme to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams.
Don’t pass up this opportunity to collaborate with the region’s innovative young talent and make real your transformative innovations and entrepreneurship journey.
Applications are open until 4 December 2023. Apply via https://fs8.formsite.com/cyberport/tjbc3acmhl/index
GBA YEP is supported by CCMF and organised in partnership with the Hong Kong Information Technology Joint Council, the PKU-HKUST Shenzhen-Hong Kong Institution, the Shenzhen-Hong Kong Union for Promoting Science and Technology, the Guangdong Software Industry Association, the Macao Young Entrepreneur Incubation Centre, and the Association for Promotion of Science and Technology of Macau.
