The Lingnan Entrepreneurship Initiative (LEI) at Lingnan University (LU) will establish a partnership with the Confucius Hall of Hong Kong and its affiliated schools (CHHK), and the DAQ Foundation, a locally based incubator and accelerator, to develop the CHHK-LU Innovation and Entrepreneurship Collaborative Hub, promoting innovation and entrepreneurship (I&E) education and practice, as well as talent development. Both parties signed the Memorandum of Understanding beginning this collaboration on 29 September 2021.
The CHHK and DAQ Foundation will provide the venue and facilities to set up the Collaborative Hub, to be located in Causeway Bay and Sheung Wan during the current phase, while LU will design, develop and deliver I&E programmes which include design innovation, humanitarian technology development and entrepreneurship incubation courses for the students and the community. The CHHK and DAQ Foundation will offer start-up tech internship opportunities in their Accelerator Programme, which LU will promote to its students, and facilitate internships.
