Our Business Director, Mr. Craig Jo, is invited to be one of the judges in YDC E-Challenge 2006. Members of the venture community, including successful entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and other professionals will evaluate and judge the executive summaries and business plans. Judges are being asked to evaluate the plans based partially upon the likelihood of the plans to become the basis of an actual viable business, and the potential financial returns the business can provide, and partially on the basis of the oral and written presentation. This consideration is, in turn, a well thought out strategy, technological innovation, reasonable financial analysis, and the team’s ability to execute the plan. Mr. Craig Jo shows his appreciation to the participants’ innovative ideas and detailed planning. He thinks that it is a challenging task in choosing the best team.
The Youth Entrepreneurs Development Council Entrepreneurs’ Challenge (YDC E-Challenge), a business plan competition open to all tertiary students in Hong Kong, has been annually organized by Young Entrepreneurs Development Council (EDC) in collaboration with Stanford University since 2000. The competition is designed to provide university students with exposure to the entrepreneurial community and skills required to facilitate an entrepreneurial spirit and mindset. Established in 1998, YDC is a private, non-profit and non-partisan organization that seeks to cultivate entrepreneurial and leadership qualities and skills in Hong Kong, particularly among young people.
