2017-01-17 Qianhai Shenzhen-Hong Kong Youth Innovation and Entrepreneurship Hub


The Shenzhen-Hong Kong Youth Entrepreneur and Innovation Hub received a series of good news at the beginning of 2017. One of them came from Hong Kong Tesla Technology Limited at the maker space of the Hong Kong Young Professionals Alliance at the Qianhai Shenzhen-Hong Kong Youth Innovation and Entrepreneur Hub. It recently signed the Leapfrog Development Program Agreement with Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation, specifying that the park will provide the 2-year acceleration program to the company. As return, the park will hold 4% of share options of the company.

 

We attach great importance to the Leapfrog Development Program not only for the reason that it represents the confidence of the Hong Kong government in the enterprises, but more importantly, an enterprise at the pioneering period always stresses innovation and market, but neglects the setting up of the sound accounting system and the enterprise system. Given that the corporation credit is another important link in the introduction of capital; therefore, with the assistance and guidance provided by the science and technology park under the supervision and administration of the Hong Kong government, the enterprise will more easily enter the positive cycle, and then realize its leapfrog development, said Jiang Junyi, co-founder of Tesla from the Hong Kong side.

On the other hand, the interaction between Shenzhen and Hong Kong will enable enterprises to align with the international market. In such way will they be able to attract international talents, and grow in the environment for scientific and technological research in China, which features low cost and high efficiency. Now it even shows a trend of catching up and even surpassing the Silicon Valley in the United States. Under such excellent circumstances, it is of upmost importance for startups to acquire a clear positioning, keep their original goal and work hard in the segment market, Jiang Junyi, founder of Tesla, so said.


Hong Kong government launches the Leapfrog Development Program, the acceleration program for enterprises


Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (also called Hong Kong Science Park) is the national enterprise incubator of the highest level in the Asian-Pacific region, the statuary body set up by the Government of the HKSAR, and the strategic partner of the Qianhai Shenzhen-Hong Kong Youth Innovation and Entrepreneur Hub. It covers an area of 22 hectares, attracting the presence of more than 600 enterprises, among which 71% are scientific and technological companies from Hong Kong, while 29% from overseas. Its annual total business turnover is estimated at approx. 165.9 billion Hong Kong dollars. 12,095 people are employed in the park, including approx.9,000 who engage in jobs related to scientific research.

 

Under the circumstance of the vigorous promotion of mass entrepreneurship and innovation by the Chinese government, the Internet innovation on the Chinese mainland has unnoticeably gained the leading position in the world. For example, such industrial stars as Shenzhen DJI, Royole and Tubatu have become rising startups. 


 

Occupying the position of the international finance center, Hong Kong is of course unwilling to be left behind so that it has timely launched the Leapfrog Development Program, an enterprise acceleration program. Each year five to six excellent enterprises will be selected from more than 600 enterprises to be incubated in Hong Kong Science Park upon rigid assessment. In addition to the increasing subsidies by the government, an important factor is to provide a coaching team consisting of three professionals to assist such enterprises in such aspects as enterprise growth, fund-raising, IPO, financing, restructuring of framework, strategy development, and business operation and expansion.

 

The Leapfrog Development Program is to assist the enterprises to become the scientific and technological enterprises known at Hong Kong and across the world, while preparing them for IPO and fund-raising. 

Qianhai has become an ideal place for young Hong Kong people to engage in entrepreneurship and innovation

 

The maker space of the Hong Kong Young Professionals Alliance is one of the Top 12 incubators at the Qianhai Shenzhen-Hong Kong Youth Innovation and Entrepreneur Hub, as well as the first maker space and accelerator of entrepreneurship fully administered by Hong Kong people, which made its presence in Qianhai. Hong Kong Tesla Technology Limited is the initiator of the maker space of the Hong Kong Young Professionals Alliance. It was an excellent entrepreneurship project introduced into Qianhai from Hong Kong Science Park by Dr. Johnny Ng.


Dr. Johnny Ng, Member of the Standing Committee of All-China Youth Federation, Chairman of Hong Kong United Youth Association and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Goldford. He graduated from Hong Kong Polytechnic University and is a doctor cultivated in Hong Kong. He has established some excellent enterprises such as qeejoo, Zunyi Digital and Foldford. Upon making success in the business field, he positively participates in the charity undertaking.

Maybe it is out of his professional sensibility or passion in the charity undertaking, Dr. Johnny Ng, initiator of the maker space of the Hong Kong Young Professionals Alliance, has high comment of the corporate philosophy of the Dog PC project of Hong Kong Tesla Technology Limited. He not only assisted Dog PC to set up its operation in Qianhai, but invests in the company.

 

Dr. Johnny Ng has made great success in many fields, such as technological entrepreneurship, enterprise business management, capital investment, service for the government and commercial circles as well as education and charity undertaking. Jiang Junyi, co-founder of the company, said that Dr. Johnny Ng’s personal experiences are the invaluable assets of the company; therefore, his participation in the company will produce immeasurable effect in its future business expansion.


At the meeting of the Qianhai Shenzhen-Hong Kong Youth Affairs Professional Consulting Committee which was held recently, Qianhai announced to launch four major plans to support the entrepreneurship and innovation by the young people from Hong Kong; for example, it will strive to cultivate and assist ten Hong Kong enterprises to be listed in Shenzhen or Hong Kong by 2020. An increasing number of Hong Kong enterprises have been attracted to set up their headquarters at Qianhai thanks to the preferential policies. It can be expected that it will become an ideal place for young people from Hong Kong to engage in entrepreneurship and innovation.
