Report:
Hong Kong as Asia's innovation center a la Silicon Valley in the global economy -- that is what outsiders like me might as well expect of this economically vibrant city, which is often ranked number one in international competitiveness and IT infrastructure.
However, surprisingly, at least to me, almost all the speakers at this year's Opportunity Conference at CUHK addressed various problems and obstacles that young people in Hong Kong are facing in trying to start new business as entrepreneurs, much like what I hear about entrepreneurship, or lack of it, in Japan.
It looked like everyone in Hong Kong was doing "soul-searching" and asking what innovation should be of the people, by the people and for the people of Hong Kong, as surprisingly few new ideas and innovations are coming out of this technologically advanced city.
After all, it comes down to the obvious fact that it is not the existing technology or the current standard of living, but the "ecosystem" and "culture" of risk taking for active human interaction and open exchange of ideas to produce innovations and entrepreneurship, which tend to be lacking even among most advanced regions across East Asia, and Hong Kong is no exception.
Having said this, I strongly feel that many young people in Hong Kong seem to be taking a step forward to be true entrepreneurs through excellent entrepreneurship programs at HK's business schools like the one at CUHK. Hopefully, those small steps by individuals will eventually amount to a giant leap for Hong Kong to become a true innovation center in the global economy in the near future.

報告:(Japanese)
世界経済におけるシリコンバレーのような役割を果たすアジアのイノベーションセンター香港 --- これが私のようなアウトサイダーが持つ香港のイメージであり、それはしばしば国際競争力やITインフラのレベルで世界一にランクされる経済的に繁栄するこの都市に期待するものでもある。
しかし驚いたことに、香港中文大学で開催された2016年度「オポチュニティ・コンファレンス」のスピーカーは誰しも香港の若者が新しいビジネスを起業することを阻む様々な問題や障害を強調していたのは、ちょうど日本での起業家精神の欠如の議論を彷彿させるものであった。
それは、この都市が技術的には先進経済であるにもかかわらず、あまり新しいアイデアやイノベーションが生まれない現実に直面し、あたかも香港の誰もが「自分探し」をして、香港の「人民の人民による人民のためのイノベーション」がどうあるべきかを問うているようにみえた。
結局のところ、すべては既存の技術や現在の生活の水準ではなく、リスクを避けずに人々が交流し、色々なアイデアを交換するような「エコシステム」や「文化」がイノベーションや起業家精神を生み出す上で重要で、それが東アジア地域では先進的な地域でさえも欠けていることが問題であり、香港も例外ではないといえる。
とはいえ、香港の若者たちは、香港中文大学のような地元の優秀な大学のビジネススクールの起業家養成プログラムを通じて真の起業家になるための第一歩を踏み出しており、そのような個人による小さな一歩前進が全体として、やがて近い将来香港にとって世界経済の真のイノベーションセンターに向かっての大きな飛躍に結びつくことを期待したいものである。

Report:
"In the West, especially in Silicon Valley, investors like venture capitalists often help startup entrepreneurs succeed as advisers or mentors, while investors in the East just sit and wait to be paid back successfully by the startup companies that they invest in," commented by Prof. Walter Mok, when he took up a statement "Don't befriend your VCs" in the video of Guy Kawasaki's lecture on "Top Ten Mistakes of Entrepreneurs" shown at the beginning of his class at CUHK.
That kind of useful suggestions and discussions took place in his very creative and interactive class "Startup - from Idea to Reality" attended by about 40 students, who seemed eager to be successful entrepreneurs themselves.
As Prof. Mok himself is an active scientist and entrepreneur, affiliated with Stanford University, he could give any kind of information and advise that those students need to start their own business in HK or elsewhere.
In fact, CUHK Business School seems quite eager to connect with Silicon Valley, as evidenced by a joint activity like the "EYE (Empowering Young Entrepreneurs) Program" between its Center for Entrepreneurship and Google to boost HK's startups:
