About OIC

Open InnoChallenge (OIC) is a brand-new endeavor launched in 2017 aiming to unleash our student’s creativity; turn their knowledge acquired in the classroom into real life innovations; and enhance students’ entrepreneurial skills to translate their innovative ideas into viable operation for profit and for social good.

Open InnoChallenge strives to inspire students’ innovation via “Experience” and “Empower” in the way of out-of-the-classroom learning.

Experience

OIC strives to deliver different activities to provide students with first-hand experience. Students can explore various communities systematically and exchange with different entrepreneurs. After the launch of the Scheme, different out-of-the-classroom learning activities, including interactive training workshop on design thinking, a series of local tours to Wan Chai, Sham Shui Po and North Point, were organized in order to inspire students’ innovative ideas. Individual coaching sessions instructed by entrepreneurs were subsequently arranged to consolidate their ideas. In 2019, we had also invited local entrepreneurs to lead over 60 delegates to South
Korea and Israel to visit the overseas universities and start-up community. Our students can experience overseas culture on innovation and entrepreneurship.

Empower

After a series of experiential activities, students can turn their innovation into viable operation in order to compete for implementation fund. The applications will be assessed according to their originality and creativity, feasibility and social impact. HK$100,000 implementation fund and multi-disciplinary resources will be granted to support the execution of awarded projects. It empowers the awarded student teams to radiate social impact to the community and also enhances their potentials and entrepreneurial skills.
