What's On

Registration Closed

Operating a business can be challenging in today's rapidly evolving digital age - the emergence of innovative trends such as big data and financial technology, along with the disruptive effects of the post-Covid economy, have created an impetus for many companies to rethink their current operational frameworks and adapt their business strategies to rapidly changing landscapes.

To address the potential pain-points which businesses may experience along the way, the Hong Kong Shenzhen Finance Research Centre, co-founded by CUHK Business School and the Shenzhen Finance Institute (SFI) of CUHK-Shenzhen, has launched an initiative – The Summit of Unsolved Problems ("SOUP Summit") – which aims to pool together ideas from both industry practitioners and researchers and produce practical solutions for the benefit of businesses, academics and society at large.

The SOUP Summit, which is currently expected to take place on 7 May 2021, is the first of its kind in Asia where researchers and industry practitioners can have in-depth, secure and confidential sessions to jointly address challenging business issues.

Join us on 22 March, when Professor Ling Cen, Associate Professor, CUHK Business School and Associate Director, Hong Kong-Shenzhen Finance Research Centre, will brief members on the details of the SOUP Summit, and take questions on how businesses can be involved.
