Lingnanian Alumni Entrepreneurs from the Faculty of Arts
Mr. Anthony SO (Co-Founder and CEO of OnGrad Consulting Company Limited)
"My partners and I have established a one-stop platform called OnGrad, providing matching service for corporates and graduates. As a young person, I think it is important to have a daring mind in face of challenges. If I add new elements to the current system or create new values, I must accept a certain degree of risks. A person who is willing to meet challenges will continue to learn, analyze and explore and will also pay attention to things happening around. Lingnan has always given me a lot of opportunities to support my adventures and build up my courage to challenge the past."

Mr. Steve LI (Founder of Recruit AI HK)
Recruit AI Studio is a local startup that provides a preliminary screening solution with artificial intelligence technology. They offer a mobile application called VCruit that allows talents to conduct a one-way interview with the built-in interviewer at any time and anywhere. The system can evaluate the talent's interview performance and identify the right talent automatically with precise data comparison. It also optimizes the recruitment & selection process and improves the HRM efficiency. On the other hand, VCruit has provided a fair interview opportunity for all talents to perform with higher flexibility against a traditional interview.
