The development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area empowers youth entrepreneurship

In the five years since the “Outline Development Plan for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area” was officially announced, the grand blueprint has gradually become a reality, and the east wind of the development of the Greater Bay Area has spread to all walks of life.

The pulse of the industry cannot be separated from young blood. In recent years, groups of young people have embraced dreams and written entrepreneurial stories in the surging tide of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, adding energy to the construction of the Bay Area and harvesting wealth and growth in the process of regional development.

Three years ago, Zhong Wensheng, who had studied and lived in Canada for seven years, returned to Guangzhou. Since he majored in business and has always been interested in investment, he joined the equity investment platform Macau Venture Times, which is committed to providing entrepreneurial support for Macau, mainland and international scientific and technological innovation talents. The company has incubation bases in Macau and Hengqin.

Zhong Wensheng calls himself an “entrepreneurial personality” and enjoys the process of promoting the realization of an idea “from zero to one”. Engaging in investment in the Greater Bay Area, he feels a sense of accomplishment – “solve some real problems and contribute to the development of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao.”

“Macao is an international free port. The Hengqin Shenzhen He District has convenient transportation, mature economic and trade exchanges, and a very good business environment. There are almost no regional differences in humanities and high communication efficiency.” Zhong Wensheng said that he can travel to and from multiple places in a day, and in the morning I work in Hengqin, go to Macau in the afternoon to follow up on projects, and return to Zhuhai in the evening. It feels like everywhere I go is the same city.

He also said that the social environment in Macao and Zhuhai is very harmonious. Whether it is the degree of tolerance of local people or the degree of cooperation between the government and enterprises, they will attract high-quality projects, and he himself can feel a strong sense of belonging.

“Two-way empowerment” with the Greater Bay Area is Zhong Wensheng’s vision.

“Macao attracts outstanding enterprises from the mainland and brings more innovative industries. The first thing it can do is empower the youth of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao. As young people, we have more opportunities.” In the future, he looks forward to using his talents to contact overseas and rely on Macao The advantages of “one country, two systems” and international city status promote the establishment and overseas expansion of scientific and technological enterprises.

For Macau young man Xu Haojie, returning to the Greater Bay Area to start a business is both a coincidence and a destiny.

He studied as an undergraduate in California, USA, and originally planned to continue his graduate studies. An experience of visiting a project in the Mainland became an opportunity for him to start his own business. While visiting companies in Shenzhen, he intuitively felt the speed of technology iteration and realized that it was a rare opportunity to stay and join the robotics industry. He gave himself half a year to start his own business and founded “MoBot Robot”.

As a native of Macau, Xu Haojie understands Macau’s market needs and pain points. He is optimistic about the catalytic role that the advancement of artificial intelligence will play in the development of robotics technology. He believes that introducing mainland technology into Macao and connecting it to specific application scenarios will be of great value, and related technologies can also be exported overseas.

When it comes to the entrepreneurial environment in the Greater Bay Area, Xu Haojie said that he has a relatively open and relaxed mentality. “Hengqin has a rental advantage and there is not much pressure. We can do it with confidence and we are not afraid of failure. There are many opportunities in the entire Greater Bay Area.”

Xu Haojie said that the entrepreneurial environment in the Greater Bay Area is unique. “Each city uses its own advantages to play a role. For example, Macao has Sino-Portuguese resources, Hong Kong has a developed financial industry, and Shenzhen leads in smart manufacturing. It is very close and convenient for everyone to cooperate.”

After completing his master’s degree in Macau, Yu Zixing, who studied e-sports, joined the sports training institution “Shui Mu Shooting” headquartered in Guangzhou, and jointly prepared with its founder to establish the Macau branch of “Shui Mu Shooting”.

Yu Zixing said that the first gold medal in the Olympic Games is usually produced by shooting events. This sport deserves more attention, and his institution is committed to cultivating professional talents. The goal of the students is to go to the Asian Games and Olympic Games. “Currently, shooting is still a niche in Macau, but being niche means there is room for popularization, and it should go further in the future,” he said.

Yu Zixing believes that the integrated development of the Greater Bay Area provides young people with more diversified growth paths. Currently, the team integrates resources from the east and west coast of the Pearl River Estuary and jointly handles problems when they encounter them, so they are confident in starting a business.

Yu Zixing said: “In the past, people in Guangzhou might return to Guangzhou after studying, and go as far as Shenzhen. Young people in Macau and Hong Kong are also similar. Now that the talent policy has been opened up, we have opportunities in the entire region.” In his view, he is not only I am from Guangzhou and also from the Bay Area.

He also said that starting a business is to contribute his limited resources and energy to society. Currently, the country has policies to support young people, and he can take advantage of the environment and take advantage of the trend and gain something.

“The sports industry will develop better and better. Now that I am 30 years old, I want to pave the way for the next generation and explore their paths.” Yu Zixing said.

As the morning sun shines over Hengqin Port, Zhong Wensheng, Xu Haojie, Yu Zixing and many young people like them will start another busy day. The Pearl River Estuary is as calm as ever, and the new productive forces surging on both sides of the river are also welcoming the new five years.
