Have you been bitten by the entrepreneurial bug?

Hong Kong Entrepreneur’s Award

In 2015 Jobable set out with the dream of building Asia’s most advanced job search. We imagined the matching technology that would instantly guide job seekers to the most relevant jobs and employers to the best talent. Then we created it.

Now we want to give back to the brightest, most energetic students across Hong Kong who have their own dreams and ambitions, but need that little extra financial security to push themselves into starting their own business.

"You can believe in Feng Shui if you want, but ultimately people control their own fate."

- Li Ka-Shing

Are you the type of person to make the entrepreneurial journey?

Here are some signs you might be:

  • Your personality doesn’t seem to fit a 9-5 job
  • You have idea that others say are crazy
  • You love learning new things
  • You want to create something of meaning
  • You would like to make the world a better place

If any of these apply to you then perhaps you should consider acting on one of those crazy ideas and starting your own business!

Chase The Dream Not The Competition

There’s no doubt that being an entrepreneur isn’t an easy path. Each day is filled with new challenges for you to overcome. The highs are going to be higher, and the lows lower. What is certain, is that you’ll find out more about yourself in just a few short years than those in full time corporate roles might in their entire career.

Some people might see starting your own business as having a binary outcome - success or failure. I think that’s a mistake, because even if things don’t work out the way you hoped then the experiences you gain in starting a venture far outweigh what you learn starting at the bottom of the corporate ladder. If you need to step into the corporate world later, trust me, you’ll be well prepared!

I would sincerely encourage anyone who sees a way to make the world a better place to live, to act on their ideas, find a solution, and ‘be the change’.
