During the epidemic, an entrepreneurial team and the fellow of Cheng Yu Tung College (CYTC) discussed some news about the sudden death of teenagers playing mobile games for 6 hours. The team suddenly thought: If the teenager spends 6 hours on mobile games while doing moderate-intensity exercise at the same time, the teenager may not die and he can also strengthen his body. What type of exercises can have a comprehensive training for the body? The team thought of combining Chinese Kung Fu with mobile games.
Therefore, an entrepreneurial team named FIT ME was hereby formed. After several months of hard work, the team not only studied on mobile games market analysis and feasibility, they were also need to find interdisciplinary mentors or partners in different fields and industry professionals, such as a team Spotential which consists of a group of physiologists who specializes in sports analysis. Finally, they developed the FIT ME app.
The team won the Bronze Award at the 2020 Macau Youth Entrepreneurship and Innovation Competition – The Fifth Qianhai Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao-Taiwan Youth Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition (Macao Selection). The team also won the ‘Winner Award’ in the Macao Division of the Fifth Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area IT Application System Development Competition and the Innovation Award at the Hong Kong and Macao division of the ninth ‘Winning in Guangzhou’ Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao University entrepreneurship competition.
‘At the initial stage of proposal preparation during the epidemic, I stayed at home most of the time. When my family and friends saw that I spent a lot of time on this proposal, they questioned on the probability of winning the competition by the use of this kind of unrestrained concept namely Kung Fu plus mobile games,’ said Zhang Haoran, member of FIT ME. ‘At that time, the team’s persistence and the encouragement from the college helped us complete this fantasy idea. When we really won the prize, my family and friends were very surprised.’
