About Us

iDendron, HKU Innovation & Entrepreneurship Hub, originates from the Greek “Dendro”, meaning “tree”. It symbolizes the HKU spirit in advancing innovation from knowledge, growing enterprise from innovation, and developing impact from enterprise. The centre provides a nucleus for knowledge to create impact, and extend multi-dimensionally to support human endeavours and society developments.

 

This is exemplified by the “tree”, a living system with multi-directional and extensive roots providing shade, shelter and nourishment for other living things to thrive. A dendron is also part of a nerve cell that transmits impulses and a nucleating molecule (dendrimer), thus epitomizing the value of propagation in innovation and entrepreneurship.

 

iDendron is powered by Technology Transfer Office (TTO) and supported by Development & Alumni Affairs Office (DAAO)
