The Empowering Young Entrepreneurs (EYE) Program is a year-long entrepreneurship program launched by Google and Center for Entrepreneurship of The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2013. The initiative is inspired by the budding entrepreneurial environment in Hong Kong. We aim to encourage local youngsters to innovate and promote Hong Kong as a city for entrepreneurship.
In November 2013, Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt and CUHK Vice-Chancellor Professor Joseph Sung announced the Empowering Young Entrepreneurs Program (EYE Program), then the program was kicked off in February 2014. Since then, we have witnessed how the program inspired and changed the lives of the entrepreneurs and their mentors, and hundreds more participants and people associated with the program. The dynamic of Hong Kong’s entrepreneurship ecosystem is changing. (Check out this 3-minute video of EYE Program Rewind!)
