Hang Fun International Group
The Hong Kong Enterprise Congratulated by CY Leung Personally
On February 25, 2020, a video signing ceremony was held for key foreign investment projects in Shandong Province. There was a special guest at this signing ceremony: the Vice Chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) and the fourth Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), CY Leung. The reason why Vice Chairman Leung attended the meeting was to promote the exchange and cooperation of the science and technology industry in Shandong and Hong Kong, and to witness the construction of the Hang Fun International Group project in Jinan.
Hang Fun International Group was founded by Wu Su, an alumnus of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). The Group cooperates with top universities, research laboratories and world-class scholars in Europe, America, Hong Kong and Macau, as well as invests in and co-founds a group of high-tech enterprises with core technologies. At present, Hang Fun International Group has invested in dozens of high-quality, high-tech companies and projects, including Nobel (Medical / Physiology Award) winners—Fried Murad Enterprise Group, Thousand Talents Program Scholars Project—China ’s unmanned boat leader, Yun Zhou Intelligent Technology, and more.
In order to promote the exchange between the two places in Shandong and Hong Kong, Hang Fun International Group invested about 5 billion Hong Kong dollars in the construction of Hong Kong Hang Fun International High-tech Industrial Park in Jinan, Shandong. This project will become a bridge for cooperation between the science and technology industry in Shandong and Hong Kong. “Mr. Wu Su, Chairman of the Board of Hang Fun International Group, was born in Jinan, settled in Hong Kong, and has deep feelings for both sides,” Chairman CY Leung specifically said in his speech.
The Unexpected Life Path
A piano prodigy in elementary school and later a member of his university's chorus group, Su seemed destined for a career in performing arts. So it was a shock to those who knew him that, after graduating from his undergraduate program at Tianjin University, he went on to pursue post-graduate studies in engineering in Hong Kong.
While studying for his Masters at HKUST, Su was a social butterfly, often engaging with his professors outside of class. One of them had a profound impact on him: Professor Chia-Wei Woo, Founding President of HKUST, who shared inspiring stories of the trials and tribulations of the University's founding with Su and imprinted on him the importance of the development of science and technology in Hong Kong.
After graduating from HKUST, Su surprised everyone yet again when he joined the Emperor Financial Services Group as an analyst. "I wanted to learn from the world's financial center. This knowledge, coupled with my familiarity with China, my management skills and my market sense, would give me a unique competitive edge if I were to return to China one day," recalls Su.
This soon came to happen: when the Internet of Things (IOT) wave hit China at the end of 2010, Su saw an opportunity and set off to Wuxi with an HKUST classmate to start up their own business. Despite being in an unfamiliar city, Su's vision and leadership enabled their small tech company Luckywin IOT Industry to flourish, growing quickly into a large conglomerate involved in real estate, investment and technology. Su took up the position of Group Executive Director in 2011, during which time he was involved in the decision-making and implementation of major industry cooperation and capital operation projects including: co-establishment of an IOT Platform based on a smart gas meter with China Resources Group as well as street lamps and an intelligent control system in Wuxi; the creation of the Asia-Pacific Emerging Industry Fund with a partner from Taiwan; and the construction of the first IOT Plaza outside Wuxi high-speed railway station.
Awarded "Top Ten Outstanding New Hong Kong Youths"
In addition to company positions, Su also holds many social positions, such as the Standing Committee of the Shandong Youth Federation, the investment consultant of Jinan City, the chairman of the Hong Kong Chapter of the International Internet of Things Association, the director of the China Life Care Association of the National Health Commission, and the first batch of national outstanding innovation and entrepreneurship mentors. Through these social duties, Su strives to make his own contribution to society.
In addition, Su did not forget to give back to his alma mater. In 2016, the One Million Dollar Entrepreneurship Competition held by HKUST invited Su to be the judge of the finals. In 2017, Hang Fun Investment also sponsored the Shenzhen division of the event. Besides that, Su is also an entrepreneurial mentor at Tianjin University.
In view of the outstanding contribution to the industrialization of Hong Kong's technology, Su was awarded the "Top Ten Outstanding New Hong Kong Youths" in 2016, with the "Diving Queen" Jingjing Guo and the "Piano Prince" Yundi Li jointly, and his portrait appeared on the NASDAQ giant screen in Times Square, New York.
