Students from HKU Business School won three awards in the HKGCC Business Case Competition including Champion – Great Eagle Group, Champion – NEC and 2nd Runner-up – NWS.
HKGCC Business Case Competition was launched in 2019 to promote the exchange of ideas between university students and businesses as well as encourages students to develop innovative and creative solutions for real-life business cases. Themed “Building better, brighter businesses”, the competition invited tertiary students and recent graduates to provide ideas and solutions to crack the business cases formulated by one of the five sponsors, including Citibank, Great Eagle Group, NEC, NWS and Sino Group.
Top 5 teams from each sponsor’s track were selected to proceed to the Semi-Final (Mentoring Phase) where mentors from each sponsor’s track provided guidance to the Semi-final Teams to refine their respective submissions. Top 3 teams from each sponsor’s track were selected to participate in the Final round and pitch their business ideas to the panel judges on January 22, 2021.

Sharing of TSANG Chun Wai:
"Developing a business proposal was not as easy as we thought. Innovativeness was the biggest challenge. Many solutions had already been adopted, particularly for technologies related to climate change. Hence we had to take extra steps to dig deeper into various sources of information to find technologies that were truly innovative.
For most of our team members, this was the first experience of pitching a business proposal. The pitching round for the competition was especially difficult since we only had 5 minutes to present our ideas. Therefore, we had to be very precise in extracting the key messages we wanted to deliver out of our detailed proposal. We also had to be creative and inspiring to capture the attention of the judges. It was a difficult but rewarding experience."
