Introduction

  • About the Competition

    YDC believes that the creativity from secondary students is unlimited.  They are also capable of presenting their ideas but they lack a suitable platform to demonstrate their abilities.  With the experience we gained from tertiary business pitch competitions, the InnoMind® Competition is newly launched in 2017 to encourage secondary students to research, develop and present their ideas properly.

    The InnoMind® Competition aims at inspiring students to think creatively for solving problems and encouraging them to put their creativity into practice.  It offers students a valuable chance to showcase their innovative and business ideas in front of seasoned executives.  Winning schools will receive cash sponsor to organize an exchange tour or extra-curricular activities for students, which enhance their knowledge on the society and increase their exposure to the world.

    Finalists will receive one-to-one guidance from business professionals and be given instant feedbacks by seasoned judges.  This will be a valuable starting point for youngster to develop their business plan and build their network.

  • Competition Format

    In the preliminary round, all participants are required to submit a 2-page proposal and a 2-minute presentation video.  10 teams will be selected to progress to the final round and be paired with a seasoned entrepreneur or mentor, who will provide adequate support and professional advice throughout the entire preparatory road to the final.

    The finalists will give a 5-minute presentation in any form and have a 10-minute Q & A session with the final judging panel.  All results of the competition will be announced at the Closing Ceremony of Young Entrepreneurs Development Council School-Company Parent Program – Jockey Club InnoMind® in July every year.
