Center for Entrepreneurship

About us 

Founded in 2005, the Center for Entrepreneurship (CfE) of the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) is an interdisciplinary association. It has united scholars in the areas of research, education and community service to inspire the spirit of entrepreneurship.

Within CUHK, CfE plot and implement strategies for knowledge transfer in collaboration with the Office of Research and Knowledge Transfer Services (ORKTS), the Centre for Innovation and Technology (CINTEC) and other entrepreneurship related entities.

Beyond CUHK, we engage and work closely with Hong Kong Government's Home Affairs Bureau, Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks, Cyberport, Hong Kong Business Angel Network, the Hong Kong Design Centre, entrepreneurs, angel investors and venture capitalists in the Pearl River Delta.

To instill an entrepreneurial mindset and motivate the passion, we work across multiple disciplines to provide education, conduct research and organize activities for members of CUHK and the society to create cultural, social and economic value.
