Hong Kong and Macao Entrepreneurship Youth and Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area blend and grow up
Xinhua News Agency, Guangzhou, 17 Nov (Reporter Xu Hongyi) eight years ago, Hong Kong youth Zhang Xiaojian resolutely came to Guangzhou to look for entrepreneurial opportunities with confidence in the prospects of the Internet industry in the mainland. Starting with Internet outsourcing services, the company he founded is now the leader in sharing the portable battery market in Hong Kong. Looking back on the course of starting a business, he sincerely lamented that Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area's friendly entrepreneurial environment has brought rich opportunities for "grass-roots" entrepreneurs in Hong Kong and Macao.
On the 17th, at a Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao Youth Employment and Entrepreneurship sharing Salon with the theme "I speak for the Greater Bay area," Zhang Xiaojian gathered in Guangzhou with entrepreneurs and nearly 200 youth representatives from Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao. Exchange ideas on entrepreneurship in the Greater Bay area.
"the Greater Bay area is not only talented and dynamic, but also has a lot of financing platforms for entrepreneurs, and support policies are also very efficient." "take the entrepreneurial project I am promoting, for example, our software and hardware team is in Guangzhou, the capital is concentrated in Hong Kong, the supply chain is located in Shenzhen, and the main target market is overseas such as Southeast Asia," Zhang said. "
Fu Tenglong, a Macao entrepreneur, said that he had traveled to many places in the mainland to start a business and finally decided to take root in Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area. He believes that the policy here has a better understanding of the situation in Hong Kong and Macao and is more in line with the needs of young entrepreneurs in Hong Kong and Macao. "as the relevant policies in the Greater Bay area become clearer and clearer, we are more willing to stay and concentrate on our cause."
The outline of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area's Development Plan proposes to provide opportunities for young people to start businesses, employment, internships and voluntary work in the Dawan area, promote exchanges and exchanges among young people, and support young people from Hong Kong and Macao to integrate into the country and participate in national construction. At present, Guangdong has introduced a number of policies to encourage young people from Hong Kong and Macao to come to the Greater Bay area to innovate and start businesses.
In 2014, Fu Tenglong was determined to resign from a IT company in Macau and come to the mainland to start an e-commerce business. The initial entrepreneurial process is not easy, but also through detours, Fu Tenglong in the first year of entrepreneurship even experienced the dilemma of not being able to pay the team. Back in those days, he thought, "that was the beginning of a real business."
After reflection, Fu Tenglong found a way to make a successful turnaround within 2 months, and achieved the first place in outdoor clothing sales on the mainstream e-commerce website, and his team also jumped to become a key merchant on the e-commerce platform.
Now, Fu Tenglong is more focused on "helping others start a business". He and his team are engaged in entrepreneurship education in Guangzhou and have trained more than 1.1 million people online and offline since 2017. "now that the infrastructure in the Greater Bay area is getting better and better, young people in Hong Kong and Macao can try to take the first step in starting a business."
For Tang Wenjun, a Hong Kong entrepreneur who is a programmer, he has had a busy and fulfilling year. Since September last year, determined to start a business, Deng Wenjun went deep into the Dawan area to inspect the scientific and technological environment, and finally chose to land in the Songshan Lake High-tech Zone in Dongguan. "We are developing a comprehensive information platform for cities in the Greater Bay area to help businesses connect to local business resources." "there are 12 people on our team, and everyone is stepping up their work to launch the first pilot version by the end of this month," Deng said. "
Chen Donghuang, chairman of Guangdong Guoke Cell Technology Co., Ltd., who graduated from Hong Kong Baptist University, is currently leading the construction of a parallel incubation park between stem cells and biomedicine. "judging from the general environment, Hong Kong has advanced scientific research level but lacks an industrial landing platform, and there is room for mutual co-operation and mutual benefit with mainland cities," he said. "
"in the early stage of starting a business, I attached great importance to the positioning and resources of Guangzhou in the Dawan area, while the future development is inseparable from the connectivity and complementary resources of the Dawan area." Chen Donghuang said that he hopes to provide greater help for youth entrepreneurship in the two places, "using the industrial resources of different cities in the Greater Bay area to turn conceptual products into landing and mass-produced products, so as to contribute to innovation and entrepreneurship in the Dawan area."
