Mr. Zhu Junwen
Founder of Lepu Sports Technology
Mr. Zhu Junwen is the founder of Lepu Sports Technology. He shared the main technology and application of his company.
At the beginning of the sharing, Mr. Zhu asked a question, “who do you think is better, Kobe, Jordan or James?” Zhu explains that when we analyze an athlete’s performance, we often quantify his performance. However, this kind of analysis can only be applied to professional athletes and ordinary people cannot get access to it. So Lepu Sports Technology focuses on the research and application in this field.
Mr. Zheng Wenhui
Founder and CEO of MADGaze
MADGaze is a technology company focuses on the development of AP smart glasses. The original idea of MADGaze is based on two failed cases: GOOGLE GLASS and AlfReal. So Zheng decided to devise a kind of AR smart glasses that is both comfortable to wear and beautiful in design. Despite the low possibility of success, Zheng still founded MADGaze.
The company had a hard time at the very beginning. After going through the most difficult times, MADGaze now has many products including Ares, X5 and Vader.
5G gives an explosive growth to AR and MADGaze captures this trend by not only positing the B end but also opening to the C end. The company has implemented products in many industries including security, machine maintenance and medical practice.
Mr. Pan Zhihao
CEO of Hong Kong Boda and Shenzhen Bosheng
Pan said starting a business was a dream for him when he was young because he thought this was a way for him to realize his self-value. He started his business after graduating from college. He saw the opportunity in the development of HDMI technology and Internet so he started to sell HDMI products on ebay, which might have a profit rate of 200%.
He believes that business sense and knowledge are important in entrepreneurship. He thought an enterprise must have its own products instead of relying on outsourcing. In 2011, he transferred his enterprise from ebay to Amazon. Since they did not have their own factories, they began to acquire and buy shares from manufactures.
In 2017, the development of Pan’s company became a case study in the MBA management course of CUHK Business School.
Mr. Liang Jianbin
Co-founder of Wing Cloud
Mr. Liang introduced his entrepreneurship stories and his development with AAMA. He thinks that one’s strain capacity is more important than learning ability when in school. While in the workplace, soft skills are more important. So we should constantly surpass ourselves and find our shortcomings.
He found that traditional operators lack of high-profit operating ability and the ability to innovate new products. So he founded his own enterprise and tried to adopt good points, avoid shortcomings and focus on the main business.
Liang’s story with AAMA started from an overseas study tour in Silicon Valley when he was an MBA student in CUHK. He saw many successful stories of identity changing, for example, from a wage owner to an entrepreneur or from an entrepreneur to an investor or a partner. He believed the vision and resources that AAMA provided could enable him to work further in entrepreneurship.

Henry Tam is the co-founder of Design for HK. His team is committed to developing students’ creativity and design thinking ability.
Henry Tam was a medical student, but he liked design and innovation, so he finally chose design and focused on education.
He expressed his concern that nowadays education only focused on teaching knowledge instead of practicing the thinking ability to Samson Ng, a famous designer in Hong Kong. Henry Tam also invited Samson to start Design for HK together.
Samson accepted his invitation and they began to provide thinking training courses for students to help students change from believing “I can’t” to “I can”.
