Then meetings will be arranged to review the progress before approval for the next disbursement. As the Micro Fund funding period is usually shorter than the HKSTP incubation period (18 months for Incu-App, 3 years for Incu-Tech and 4 years for Incu-Bio), the review and reporting requirements of HKSTP Incubation Programme on the Funded Start-up shall continue after the end of the Micro Fund funding period.

Will the execution of the awarded project be counted as Work-Integrated Education (WIE)? You need to check with your department whether the execution of your awarded projects will be qualified as WIE. 35. Will Awarded Teams be required to implement their awarded projects? Yes.

If a member of the company (e.g. PA) withdraws from the company business and such withdrawal may render the company no longer eligible for the Scheme, what follow-up action should the company take? In such case, the company should identify a replacement for that member and seek prior approval from PolyU for such a change. Failing that, the funding entitlement to the company will lapse and unused fund (including the fund disbursed/ used without appropriate proof documents) shall be returned to PolyU. Oct 2017 P. 22
