1 The Chinese University of Hong Kong Vice-Chancellor s Cup of Student Entrepreneurship 2015 The Center for Entrepreneurship (CfE) of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) invites all students attending CUHK to enter their start-up business plans in the Vice-Chancellor s Cup of Student Entrepreneurship (VCCE). The final presentations of VCCE will take place on Friday 27 th February, Teams will present their plans to panels of judges who will select as winners those planning to create the most value subject to feasibility. The judging panels will be made up of venture capitalists, entrepreneurs and investors. Students and faculty of CUHK are welcome to attend the presentations. Presenters will meet privately with judging panels for feedback sessions. Winners of VCCE may represent CUHK to join local and international competitions and may apply to the CfE for travel subsidies to those competitions subject to fund availability. Prizes First prize is HK$8,000; second prize is HK$5,000 and third prize is HK$2,000 Team Composition & Eligibility This is a competition for graduate students & undergraduates, and at least one graduate student must be a member of the venture s startup management team. A team with a few undergraduates will be allowed to compete. Each entry shall be a team of from one to five CUHK students and shall be supervised by a CUHK faculty member. Value Creation and Feasibility Judges will select as winners teams that are expected to generate the greatest return on their investment. Determination of expected return requires assessing the chances of successful implementation as well as the generated value in the event of implementation. Teams that present plans that have little chance of being successfully implemented will not be selected as winners. Depending on the business model, return generated by plans could be captured in differing proportions by investors and other stakeholders.

2 Your Business Plan Your business plan should be addressed to an external prospective contributor of equity capital or other resources required for implementation. The plan should detail the value that your venture adds to purchasers of your product or service and the business model for capturing that value. You should explain the operational, personnel, marketing, sourcing and financing aspects of the venture, including the projected returns to the investors and other stakeholders, the risks in achieving those returns and the strategies for mitigating those risks. Your venture can be a concept, a start-up or an early-stage business. Eligible ventures can have already started operations but must not have generated substantial sales prior to September Competitors from previous VCCE competitions may re-enter their own updated plans from previous years as long as the re-entered updated plans did not win first, second or third prize. Plans from the CUHK Professor Charles K. Kao Student Creativity Awards (KSCA) that have not won VCCE competitions are eligible, whether or not they have won prizes at KSCA or elsewhere. Through the clear presentation of relevant market research, proofs of concept and/or prototype testing, you may demonstrate how your proposed venture s comparative advantages will generate value. You should consult and enlist the help of persons in the Hong Kong, the Chinese and the global business communities to improve the feasibility of your plan. The judges will treat the business plans as blueprints for new companies, so increased team diversity through inter-faculty membership and involvement of external parties may enhance prospects of winning. The attractiveness of your venture may be further increased by involving parties outside of CUHK s student body, but the students roles in the venture s conception, management, and ownership must be substantial. To be eligible for entry in VCCE, your team members must not simply be acting as consultants writing a business plan for a company with which you have little ongoing stake. In general, a member of the student team should be CEO, COO, or President of the venture, or members of the student team should occupy 50% or more of the functional area management positions that report directly to the CEO, COO, or President. Members of the student team should also own 50% or more of the equity allocated to the management team and key advisors. If students hold less than 50% of the equity allocated to the management team and key advisers, and/or less than 20% of total equity, students should show evidence that they were a major force in the venture s creation. VCCE is for new, independent ventures in the seed, start-up, or early growth stages. Generally excluded are the following: buy-outs, expansions of existing companies, real estate syndications, tax shelters, franchises, licensing agreements for distribution of existing products or services in a different geographical area, and spin-outs from existing corporations. Licensing new technologies from universities or research labs is encouraged. All ventures must be seeking outside equity capital.
