I was honor to be invited by CityU Knowledge Transfer Office as Inno-preneurship mentor to assist our junior cohort in this year again and joined the Meet-up Dinner on 28th May 2018. The Inno-preneurship Mentoring Scheme is exclusive for CityU communities who desire to turn their creative ideas into start-ups. I was assigned as mentor to Hands Life Science and met the CEO Mr. Marco So who was graduated in BCH Department, CityU (Now named CHEM Department). Moreover, I introduced Dr. Samson Tam (Partner, Hong Kong-Shenzhen United Investment Fund) to him for advising about business and investment issues. Then we took a photo for memory.
