Two Alumni Named in Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia 2020 List
Two School of Engineering alumni have separately gained places on the Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia 2020 list of young entrepreneurs and changemakers. The list comprises 300 young leaders under 30 years of age, chosen from 3,500 nominations in 10 different categories.
EventXtra’s Angus LUK Kai-Chit (2012 BEng in Computer Science) was included in the enterprise technology category. He co-founded the event management software company with WONG Cheuk-Sum (2013 BEng in Computer Science). Winston WONG (2014 BEng in Computer Engineering) was listed in the finance and venture capital category for co-founding Qupital, a trade finance platform for small and medium-sized enterprises.
The alumni were selected after vetting by a panel of judges comprising accomplished entrepreneurs in each category. Criteria for the list included demonstrated leadership and potential of success in their industry, with innovation and disruption also taken into account in final decision-making. Both start-ups are members of the Cyberport Incubation Programme in Hong Kong.
