Hong Kong Baptist College was founded by the Baptist Convention of Hong Kong in 1956 as a post-secondary college committed to the provision of a whole-person education. In 1983, it became a fully-funded public tertiary institution, and the College gained university status just over a decade later. It was renamed Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) in 1994.

Over the years, HKBU has remained committed to the pursuit of excellence in education, research and service to the community. As one of Asia’s finest institutions of higher learning, HKBU is dedicated to nurturing future generations of civically engaged community members, and it provides them with a broad-based, transdisciplinary and creative education.

Its eight faculties/schools offer a wide array of programmes across a diverse range of disciplines, from the arts, business, communication, and social sciences to science and technology, Chinese medicine and sport.

With its fundamental strengths in the arts and humanities, HKBU offers an education and research environment that fosters technological progress with a focus on the human dimensions. At the same time, the University is using technology to push the envelope of human imagination in the arts and cultural sphere. Coupled with our unceasing efforts to achieve breakthroughs in science and Chinese medicine, HKBU strives to contribute to the building of a better world and a more compassionate society.

Our team has taken the lead in sparking conversations about entrepreneurship across the campus. Through a dedicated outreach campaign, we've managed to engage a diverse group of over 50 students, as well as faculty and staff, encouraging them to share and explore their startup ideas and consider the vast possibilities for innovation that our university holds, resulting in 40 students responding to our survey.

By harnessing the insights we gathered, we've been successful in pairing up students whose entrepreneurial goals and interests align, effectively setting the stage for a fertile startup ecosystem right here at HKBU. This has been a crucial step in not only bringing together like-minded individuals but also in crafting a foundation for these budding entrepreneurs to build upon, pushing their innovative ideas forward. The enthusiasm and cooperative spirit this initiative has fostered are palpable. We anticipate the future achievements of these growing startups, confident in the knowledge that our efforts have contributed to a more dynamic and collaborative university environment.
