StartupsHK Career Roadshow Visits the University of Hong Kong


After visiting the Chinese University of Hong Kong,  Hong Kong Polytechnic University and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology; The University of Hong Kong (HKU) came next. With final exams, final projects and the end of term looming, 40 students were attracted to the event making it a great turnout.

Presenting at the event were Wooya, Enterproid, Spoilt and Stepcase representing the diversity of start ups in HK ranging from Mobile Enterprise apps, experience gifts to mobile photo sharing.

The talk went smoothly thanks to HKU careers staff, and was arranged by Hoi Wan (@hoista) and the students were very interested to learn more about working at these start ups.

This was the last talk for this school year and we hope to have even more start ups recruiting at future events.
