HONG KONG BRANCH
Dawn Advisory at HKUST was founded in August 2020 by Rennie Jiang and Alexander Eaton. Recognizing the growth potential in bringing Dawn to Asia, they decided to build the bridge between student talent and startups by leveraging the burgeoning startup ecosystem of Hong Kong. This branch currently has 11 total members that work on one of our three projects supporting startup founders and are undergoing training to ensure impact-driven recommendations to clients.
