HiTECH Innovation Society

What we’re all about

Who we are

We aim to bridge the gaps between innovative ideas and products, start-ups and investors. We welcome students from any discipline who are interested in technology, innovation, entrepreneurship, and startups!

Our society is composed of students from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds and levels of study (business, biology, computing, law and more), who all have an interest in technology, innovation, and entrepreneurship. We wish to contribute our efforts to helping our students and the wider audience to know more about current innovation trends and the potential business opportunities, by hosting a range of events.

What we do

HiTECH Innovation Society was founded in 2015. The society gathers talents from prestigious Universities throughout the UK with the aim of connecting and bridging Sino-British scholars and entrepreneurs. We are committed to creating the best resource sharing platform for Sino-British students, entrepreneurs and innovators.

We organize well-designed activities with aims to explore and tackle real-life problems in innovation, start-ups and technical transformations. Our activies included trainings and seminars for young entrepreneurs, innovation trips to famous universities and companies such as Alibaba and Google, brainstorm and business plan competitions with considerable prizes, business roadshows, and more!

Through our cooperation with different universities and companies, we wish to help our members gain more insight into the current innovation trends and secure valuable networks across different regions, disciplines and profiles.
