Studying at PolyU in Hong Kong was the first time I had ever been overseas. It made me recognize the importance of having a global perspective. I have truly enjoyed my stay here and I have made so many wonderful friends. This exchange has made me realize that there is so much in the world that I really want to learn and experience! I’m now more determined than ever to get the most out of life.

PolyU gave us lots of support in founding our startup, I’m Here Today Limited. The PolyU Micro Fund boot camp gave us opportunities to meet and network with successful entrepreneurs. We were assigned different mentors, who are active in the present startup landscape, who taught us about everything – from technology to business models. We also received seed funding from the China Entrepreneurship Fund, to help us launch our product ‘Umbrella Here’, which was chosen by Kickstarter.com as a ‘Staff-Picked Project’.
