EcoBus Students Score Prestigious Win

Many congratulations to Chloe Jazzy Lau (12B1) and Aiswarya Rambhatla (12M1) for winning the prestigious FedEx Express/JA International Trade Challenge(HK) 2020/21 earning them the right to represent HK at the APAC challenge in March where they will be pitched against the best in Asia.

FedEx Express/JA ITC Challenge, HK this year drew 315 students who participated in virtual workshops led by volunteers from Junior Achievement (JA) and the sponsors FedEx, where they were mentored in business strategy. The shortlisted 10 teams then presented their business plans with value proposition, pricing strategies, identified market opportunities and distribution channels, virtually to the panel of judges.

Within the theme of sustainable tourism, the duo developed ‘AquaVenture’ – ‘an innovative filtration straw for adventure lovers. Made of bio-based materials, the straw removes pathogens from contaminated water and provides on-the-go access to clean drinking water’. Good luck to them for the APAC Challenge ahead now!
