With the opening of Cyberport and the Science Park in 2004, the Government hopes to attract major technology companies to establish their presence in Hong Kong. In foreign countries, investors have been interested in the development potential of technology, and they have gradually expanded their interest from computer network to other technology areas, such as biotechnology, materials science, mechanical engineering and artificial intelligence.
After obtaining a master degree in Biomedical Engineering at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Gavin LOU has won a number of entrepreneurship competitions. He is developing an apparatus that measures fat burn from breathing at the Science Park, targeting customers who pursue physical fitness to help them figure out how their bodies react after exercise. Gavin’s team decided to develop a chip having a much higher sensitivity than the existing chips for industrial use, so that fat burn can be more precisely measured. At present, the research for the chip has come to the final stage, but they are falling behind on the progress of product design and testing.
Moreover, in this episode, we will continue the story from the last episode on the 4 young gentlemen Leo LU, Alan, Oscar and Leo LEUNG.

After a number of trials and consolidations, they launched another service this year – the “micro influencer matching platform”, which helps to match restaurants with suitable online influencers for food tasting and promotion through data analysis, and it wins praises from many owners of small and medium-sized restaurants.

Before graduating from the university, she has already opened a 50 square feet shop. As the business was doing well, she opened a branch in the same shop arcade.
