CB teams in Cyberport Top 10

The Travel Maker team at the CUPP presentation ceremony

College of Business students featured as two of the winning teams in the Cyberport University Partnership Programme (CUPP) 2016. The CB students impressed the judges with their project, Travel Maker (Forexchange), a platform connecting currency exchange stores to the general public, enabling users to find the best brokers for immediate currency exchange.

The CB Travel Maker team comprised Information Management graduates, Jared Lam Chi-ki, Issac Liu Forchun, Wilson Lai Ka-wo, and final year students Cyrus Wong Tszchung, and Jason So Tak-chun from the Department of Information Systems. A further CB student from the Department of Economics and Finance, Roy Hung Lok-bun, joined up with other CityU students to create another award-winning project, B-route (ticket chain), a blockchain ticketing platform which allows customers to buy or resell e-tickets and create their own events.

All students attended a pre-camp training and the entrepreneurial boot camp at Stanford. Each of the ten winning teams were awarded a cash grant of HK$100,000 and shortlisted as candidates for the Cyberport Incubation Programme to turn their business ideas into reality.

The CUPP winners said, "We are so thrilled to have won in the Cyberport University Partnership Programme 2016! Thanks to everyone for all the support and help extended throughout the programme. We are especially grateful for the patience, critical input and valuable insights from the professors at the Stanford Graduation School of Business."
