The inaugural HKUST Founders' Club Fellow Dinner was a phenomenal success, drawing together approximately 40 fellows—including HKUST faculty and alumni founders—from diverse fields. We were deeply appreciative of the positive dynamics and the strong bonds that were formed during the delightful evening. The atmosphere was filled with vibrant conversations and hearty laughter.


Prof. Tim Cheng, HKUST Vice-President for Research and Development, delivered the opening remarks. He emphasized the crucial role of the HKUST Founders' Club in uniting individuals and expressed confidence in the fellows as masterminds to our future endeavours.
