Aligning with HKUST's Knowledge Transfer Mission and with a view to strengthening the promotion of entrepreneurship spirit among HKUST stakeholders leading to social and economic impact, the HKUST Entrepreneurship Fund ("E-Fund"), with an initial fund size of HK$50M committed by HKUST, is established for the benefit of promising HKUST technology start-up companies.

E-Fund is intended to be a capital investment solely for HKUST start-up companies, but not a condition-free grant. It will also help bridge the funding gap of HKUST start-up companies before they could secure sufficient external funding to grow or to expand.
