Launching a start-up can be an exciting yet daunting endeavour. One of the key pieces of advice often given is to talk to other entrepreneurs – learn from their successes and their mistakes. In December 2021, the UCL Recent Graduates Network Hong Kong brought together a group of recent UCL graduates to learn from successful entrepreneurs and UCL alumni, Victor Yip (MSc Business Analytics 2016) and Warren Luk (BSc Economics and Statistics 2010).   

Victor runs financial technology company Pecutus which launched ReadyFX- a platform for people to exchange international currency directly with each other. Warren is CEO of Good Lab, a start-up offering innovation training and consultancy in the social and public sectors.  

The two entrepreneurs shared their inspiring career journeys as entrepreneurs in Hong Kong and divulged the secrets of their success to their fellow alumni in a relaxed Q&A session. A networking opportunity for all attendees was provided over brunch.   

Hong Kong network lead Natalie Kwok (BASc Societies 2015) said: “The Recent Graduates Network is a great community for relationship building, your career or any idea exchange.”
