A total of 6 Hong Kong university students from the University of Hong Kong, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and the University of Sydney, paid a visit to Zhejiang University to know about its entrepreneurial and innovative projects.

Zijin Startup Space is a startup incubation program established by Zhejiang University. It provides hardware and software support for college students, including offices, entrepreneurship training and counseling. HK students had a tangible feeling about startups at Zhejiang University.
