These MBAs Launched Their Dream Tech Startups After Business School
Find out how the Hong Kong University MBA helped three entrepreneurs launch successful ventures in FinTech, AgriTech and EdTech.
Musheer Ahmed’s latest FinTech fair was attended by over 3,000 people, Ariel Lai's EdTech firm uses mindfulness to help improve children’s concentration spans, and Raymond Mak’s AgriTech company runs cutting-edge urban farms in Hong Kong.
The three young entrepreneurs have each launched tech startups disrupting traditional industries, and they all have one thing in common.
Before launching their thriving tech startups, all three graduated from The University of Hong Kong (HKU) Business School's MBA program, where students are taught the business skills and expertise needed to successfully launch their own business ventures.
Switching to entrepreneurship
Before coming to HKU, neither Raymond, Ariel, or Musheer had launched a startup before.
Musheer had worked as a fixed income and commodities trader in Bangalore, while Ariel held business development roles at corporate banks like HSBC and Citi. Raymond worked as a managing consultant at PwC before choosing to study an MBA in 2015.
