We are pleased to announce that the 2nd CUHK Corporate Innovation Index (CII) is now underway. We will soon invite both large corporations and SMEs to participate in our revised survey, which aims to assess their level of innovation and identify areas for improvement.

To ensure the effectiveness of our survey, we conducted a pilot study where corporates and SMEs had the opportunity to review and provide feedback on our survey design and questions today at the Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce (HKGCC) 香港總商會HKGCC. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all the participants like Teddy Liu, Nike Kong, Mingles Tsoi, for their support and valuable input during this process.

In addition to the pilot study, we were honored to have two esteemed entrepreneurs, 鄭嘉泓 (Wizpresso) and Queenie So (SyZyGy), who shared their invaluable experiences ininnovation andentrepreneurship. I have had the privilege of observing and offering guidance to both Calvin and Queenie since they embarked on their entrepreneurial journey a few years ago. It is truly gratifying to witness their growth and remarkable accomplishments.

During the session, we discussed the challenges faced by startups, including the “Death Valley”. We are grateful to our moderators, Patrick S Lee and Professor Dominic Chan, for facilitating the insightful discussions.

We would also like to extend our heartfelt thanks to our colleagues at CUHK  APIB, led by Professor Waiman Cheung and our Strategic Partner HKGCC, led by Patrick Yeung and Dr. Wendy Lam, for their contributions to this project. While we have just begun, we are confident that the best is yet to come. Stay tuned for more updates on  CII.
