Lingnan Entrepreneurship Initiative (LEI)
Joint Humanitarian Entrepreneurship Winter Academy 2020
Most learning in universities takes place in isolation, students are offered courses and there are outreach programs which try to work with communities. Considering an apparent lack of a crossover between a structured course and student-community interaction; Office of Service-Learning and Lingnan Entrepreneurship Initiative at Lingnan University, Hong Kong initiated the first joint humanitarian entrepreneurship summer academy in 2018. In the third edition of this program, we have partnered with multiple universities and local partners to come up with this exciting program.
