img Kin Ting Ho (BBA Entrepreneurship and Finance, 2020) was honoured with the ‘Star in the Making’ award by the Institute of Financial Technologists of Asia (IFTA) in the FinTech Achievement Awards 2020. He was one of the only two awardees in the category this year.

The ‘Star in the Making’ award recognises students for innovative projects or ideas that could positively transform the FinTech industry. In 2019, Ho teamed up with two other HKBU graduates to come up with the FOODCHAIN idea to offer financing solutions for small and medium-sized enterprises, a much-needed service especially during the pandemic. The idea was also one of the winning projects at the Cyberport University Partnership Programme for the Cyberport Creative Micro Fund.

Themed “Embracing FinTech amid New Normal and Accelerating Digitization” this year, the IFTA FinTech Achievement Awards, now in its third year, recognise the important role talented corporations and individuals play in FinTech development and implementation. It highlights and celebrates the extraordinary achievements made by companies and individuals in the Finance and Technology industry.
