GRAND PRIZE AWARD OF FEDEX SMALL BUSINESS GRANT CONTEST 2015
FedEx Express (FedEx) organizes its first FedEx Small Business Grant Contest in Hong Kong which aims to encourage SMEs to develop their markets in overseas. Mr. Lee Siu Lun Alan, the founder and invertor of B-Free Technology Ltd., started to invent award-winning B-Free Chair to help the disabled overcome stairs and regain mobility due to a broadcast about a disabled youngster who had been confined to his home for eight years as he could not negotiate the five stairs at the lobby of his building. In the final stage, we were asked to present a live pitch on the business plans to go global. On 2015/12/01, we were awarded grand prize with HK$150,000 in financial grants from FedEx. The grants will allow us to further research and develop the next generation wheelchair, the B-Free Ranger and assist in our plan to go global. Alan also decides part of the grants will go for manufacturing a unit and give it to a disable for free.
