Google chairman Eric Schmidt announced yesterday a one-year program, partnering with The Chinese University of Hong Kong, to help young entrepreneurs in Hong Kong.

The offerings, as reported by Startup HK, include,

  • An incubation and mentorship program designed with CUHK; this will give entrepreneurs in Hong Kong access to mentors that can often be hard to reach in Hong Kong.

  • A sponsored trip for outstanding program participants to Google headquarters in Mountain View, U.S. to meet and connect with experts in the global community; and

  • Efforts to help young entrepreneurs overcome the startup costs and isolation that come with high rents and a fragmented entrepreneurship community.
