HiTech Innovation Society

What we’re all about

HiTECH Innovation Society aims to bridge the gap between innovative ideas and products, start-ups and investors. People from all sort of disciplines are welcome to attend!

As a group of students who are mostly doctoral students at the university, we wish to contribute our efforts to support those who are interested specifically in technology innovation, knowledge transfer, developing businesses both in and out of UK and securing investment.

What we do

We deliver well-designed activities with aims to deal with realistic problems from innovations and technical transformation. Activities are included but not limited to trainings and seminars for young entrepreneurs. We will organise innovation trips to famous universities and great companies such as Alibaba and Google. We will hold brainstorm and business plan competitions with considerable prizes, business roadshows, etc.

Through cooperation with other universities, such as Oxford and Cambridge, we wish to help our members secure the most suitable partners across regions, discipline and status.

How You can benefit

Our members will benefit from the strong link that we have built with senior academics, successful entrepreneurs, and business incubators both in and outside UK. Those group of people will assist and mentor our members to overcome different challenges in the process of starting their own business, such as the protection of intellectual properties, the guidance of legislations and policies, the mentoring of business plans, the raising of start-up capital, etc.

Meanwhile, excellent teams and individuals can get heavily Subsidized (or even Free trips) to visit companies and business incubator in China. You will also enjoy opportunities to seek for potential investors for their projects.

Finally all our members benefit from a range of exclusive extra 10% discounts with several merchants (conditions in brackets) including Blackwell bookshop (non-book items), Café Miro (order >£3), Daniela’s Haircut Salon beneath Eldon Court and the Shakebar at Merrion centre and Crowns Buffet (pay cash, & £1 off buffets).
