Action is the Key

In the world of innovation, action is the key to success. Our alumni are taking action every day, tackling intriguing problems and building new solutions from their bases in Hong Kong, Mainland China, Europe, India, and beyond.

Our alumni’s entrepreneurial ventures may sound simple, but there is more than meets the eye regarding the technology they have developed and their business models.  In the following pages, Rao Xiang (HKUST EMBA), Founder of AXON Technology, talks about helping businesses of all sizes harness the power of data. Victor Ruiz (Kellogg-HKUST EMBA), whose startup offers smart mirror technology, explains how to make things simple when building a minimum viable product.  Jess Cheng (BBA) shares how she co-founded an international power bank charging service, a two-year-old startup which has proved incredibly scalable.

Other alumni have become ecosystem builders. Abhinav Pandey (MBA), from India, talks about his work coaching Indian startups, and connecting them with investors and resources.

Kieran Fung (MBA), a social innovation consultant in Hong Kong, helps to build the community of HKUST MBA students and alumni by addressing social purpose with viable business models.
