JUMPSTARTER is an annual flagship event organized by Alibaba Entrepreneurs Fund, and it is a must-attend event in the Hong Kong startup ecosystem, where leading technology are being showcased, future trends and implications are being discussed, and latest adoptions and applications are being appraised. SEED saw it is a great opportunity to introduce the latest technology to students, and a platform for our future talent to get to know and inspired from the technology startups in Hong Kong.
Divided into small groups, the students were guided through the showcase area in four different themes – immersive art tech, non-fungible token (NFT), VR gaming, and up-and-coming startups. The tour has been tailored to explain the technologies behind the “buzzwords”, as well as to let them experience in person the impact of such technology in different aspects – art appreciation, gaming, and business ideas etc.
We had had a concern if the technology would be too complex for the students, but quickly we realized the students were very eager to take part in this kind of industry event, even they asked questions that we had not thought about before. We received some positive notes from the principals and teachers too, and we are thankful that they supported this activity even on a Saturday.
“Seeing is believing” – the best way to learn is to experience. We will continue to customize more learning experience leveraging the technology and startup ecosystem.
