  Mr. Jimmy Chan
  Founder & CEO, Vizz Group (Holding) Limited
  Founder & CEO, Madcradle Online Limited
  Director, Senses Wine & Spirits Limited

Jimmy founded Vizz Technology Limited in 2002, whose expertise is total integrated solutions in e-Commerce & Retail Management. Vizz Group is now currently leading 5 Information Communication Technology (“ICT”) companies with over 200 staff in HK, China and Taiwan. In 2008, he grasped the opportunity to develop IT business in Mainland China and developed his own research and development team in Guangzhou. In the same year, he founded Madcradle Online Limited which focuses on digital marketing and creative solutions.

Jimmy’s startup experience exceeds 15 years, but more recently, he has put a lot of efforts into developing a startup ecosystem to provide new entrepreneurs with co-working space, funding and expansion support. Seeing how many young people with entrepreneurial aspirations were discouraged by the high office rentals, he wanted to help them achieve their startup dreams.

In 2000, Jimmy graduated from Chinese University of Hong Kong with degree of Bachelor of Science. He obtained Master degree of ecommerce & Internet Computing from University of Hong Kong in 2007. He is also the Independent Director of CINS Corp (“CHD”), listed on Canadian Stock TSX Venture Exchange. He is also Executive Committee (Exco) of the Hong Kong Wireless Technology Industry Association (WTIA) and HK Internet & eCommerce Association.

Jimmy has been giving back to CUHK actively after graduating. From 2016 onwards, he has become Chairman of Chung Chi College Alumni Association and a mentor of its Mentor Programme. He believes the association could bring together alumni of different generations through its diverse activities. While everybody has different paths to follow, they could all be a source of inspiration with their individual life perspectives and stories of their survival strategies in our business-oriented society.
