This blog serves as my learning journal and as my business website which captures research, articles and involvement as an information management professional, a management consultant, an entrepreneur and a PhD student in Mobile Learning.
Art Group Limited is a company I co-found in 2009. The company first product ClassBooking was awarded incubation at HK Cyberport IncuTrain Center in Dec 2009, and in Nov 2010, it has received two awards – one being the prestigious Red Herring Asia 100 innovative startup company in Asia Pacific and the other is with Asia Pacific Mobile Learning and Edutainment Advisory Panel (part of LTTCom.com and GoMobile.my) recognising contribution to Mobile Learning Initiatives.
ClassBooking was conceived based on our research conceptual framework HELP (published in collaboration with the Knowledge Management Research Center of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University) has been commercialized as a software as a service (at ClassBooking.com). ClassBooking is now being ported to Google Apps Marketplace for international audience (hopefully benefiting worldwide SMEs/NPOs to help manage their activities) ; a spin-off search and review portal has been in commercial service in Hong Kong, and currently in beta mode for Taiwan market and soon in Singapore, Malaysia, UK, USA
Currently I am looking for investors to join our first round for ClassBooking and OpenClass Taiwan franchise as http://OpenClass.com.tw , Singapore franchise as http://OpenClass.com.sg, Malaysia franchise as http://OpenClass.com.my and UK as http://OpenClass.co.uk
In addition to this exciting opportunity, I also believe in creating and unlocking new demand – which is why I practice, provide training and consulting in Blue Ocean Strategy in HK with UCSI Blue Ocean Strategy Regional Center as their partner.
