Great ideas win prizes in Shanghai

Student winners of an innovation competition hosted by the Fanhai International School of Finance at Fudan University pose for the camera at the award ceremony.

Digital gadgets to help new mothers cope with depression and apps for graduates seeking better jobs were just two of the ideas from winners of the International Collidoscope Challenge, a competition hosted by the Fanhai International School of Finance at Fudan University.

The competition invited students at home and abroad to share their plans on what to do and how to do it if they were offered the opportunity to start a business.

“It is a platform for young people to share bright ideas, to find demands with huge potential, and to know more about China,” said Qian Jun, dean of the school.

Chiang Yan Qi, one of the winners from the University of Cambridge, said the competition highlighted the importance of fintech and emerging markets.

Nearly half of the participants of the competition were from overseas.
