Declaration & Licensing
For full-time staff or research postgraduate students, there may be restrictions limiting your role in a start-up.
Faculty members should follow the instructions to make a Declaration of Interests via the HKU Portal.
If your start-up utilises any HKU IP, please consult our Business Development team at TTO to obtain an IP licence agreement.
