Students mean business at young entrepreneur programme in Hong Kong

It used to be that starting a business was best left to those with money, otherwise options were limited.

But those days are gone with many young people starting businesses with the help of Junior Achievement Hong Kong, an NGO that empowers youngsters to attain economic success through its applied learning programme.

Ahead of the Lunar New Year, more than 1,500 budding business types aged 14 to 18 will show that youth can trump experience by locking down stalls at a fair in Kwun Tong on Saturday.

Justin Chau Tim-lok is among those who have been coached on their entrepreneurial journey with the help of more than 130 volunteer business advisers and about 100 teachers.

For the past five months, Chau has been training hard with 20 of his schoolmates to lay the foundation for financial success with their new company, Anymos.

Chau, who has gone from knowing nothing about business to learning how to design, launch and run a company, says compromise is key.

“There were times when each of us had a different idea and couldn’t agree, but at the end of the day, if we want Anymos to succeed, we must compromise by putting the company first and adopting adult-like communications to come up with solutions.”

The name of their company plays on the word “animals” and with the Year of the Dog approaching they designed their stationery collection with everyone’s favourite cuddly companion in mind.

“We have printed dogs and cats on notepads, stickers and tin boxes that can serve as piggy banks. Pet lovers will find it hard to tear themselves away.”
