A student team from Faculty of Business Administration has won a silver prize in The China-Portuguese Speaking Countries 929 Innovation and Entrepreneurship Challenge (“929 Challenge”), an international entrepreneurial competition organized by the Permanent Secretariat of the Forum for Economic and Trade Cooperation between China and Portuguese-speaking Countries (Macao). The team comprised of 3 PhD students in Management, Luodi Jiang (leader), Mengyu Zhou, Yuerong Han, and 1 MSc in Finance student, Ruijie Li. Their project is based on nine major psychological health scales and aims to assess students’ mental health status. By integrating these scale indicators with students’ social media and personal information for quantification and evaluation, it diagnoses users’ mental health conditions and generates corresponding mental health assessment reports, providing support and assistance for subsequent mental health rehabilitation diagnosis.
929 Challenge targets university students and start-up teams from China and Portuguese-speaking countries. The 929 Challenge aims to leverage Macao’s role as a gateway, bridging business ideas between China and Portuguese-speaking countries, and assisting Chinese start-ups and investors in accessing more international business opportunities. Currently, the 929 Challenge is the largest innovation and entrepreneurship competition between China and Portuguese-speaking countries.
