#ASTRI 應科院 is one of the major pillars for Hong Kong #Innovation and #Technology #ecosystem. They have been empowering many tech companies, #startups and large enterprises and SMEs on applying technologies to solve problems from #FinTech to #MetaVerse, from #Cybersecurity to #IC. I am grateful to sit down with Dr. Denis Yip 葉成輝, the CEO of ASTRI, to talk about his vision on the tech industry in #GBA and how Hong Kong can seize the emerging opportunities. I also learnt from Denis how he is leading ASTRI to empower Hong Kong companies and startups to leverage on their technologies and IPs to further develop their products and services. We talked about many other interesting points and I really enjoyed our conversation. Denis is a leader with great vision and wisdom in particular on tech #talent cultivation. ASTRI not only has experienced researchers and technologists in house, but also trained so many talents who are now great entrepreneurs running their own startups. Dennis talked about ASTRI in fact is like a Kung Fu training school #ShaolinTemple #少林寺。 He is planning to build a strong alumni network so that they can continue to collaborate. It is also a good timing to attract and recruit Hong Kong citizens with tech background, who are now in foreign countries, to be back and work in Hong Kong. Appreciate Denis to share his valuable experience with me and our on-site and online audiences. A big thank to Professor Andrew Chan Veronica Li Dicky Shek Amy Mak and many teammates from #GBABusinessSchool and Phoebe Yip 劉泇妍Chrysanthi.l. and many teammates from ASTRI to make this forum a success.
