在不同的社交平台上,我們看到不同的創業故事,從0到1、1到10,到底企業是怎樣從初創期走到成長期並繼續前行的呢?我們都知道創業不容易,不斷嘗試並堅持下去更不容易。創業並非一朝一夕即可完成,各種失敗案例不斷,可能是找不到資金、團隊遭逢變故等,所以創業者背後面對怎樣的挑戰呢?又是如何撐過難關和挑戰呢?

自我懷疑

挑戰: 企業家的生活並不令人羨慕,至少在開始時是這樣。當事情出了問題或者成長速度沒有你想象的那麼快時,你很容易就會氣餒,開始懷疑自己,想要放棄。

解決辦法: 能夠克服自我懷疑是企業家必須具備的品質。對付自我懷疑的最好方法就是按照你的定下的目標去做。當你情緒低落、缺乏動力時,看看你的清單,你就會知道你今天所做的事情正助你實現人生目標,離成功更近了一步。

企業家面臨著許多挑戰,毅力和智慧是你重要 …


With the world changing at a rapid pace, new sets of questions call for new ways of solving problems. The invention of the portable computer and the phone in your lifetime revolutionized the way we communicate, however, these inventions became the default in your child’s lives in an instant. For example, it’s also almost taken for granted the way you can just Google something online for answers when you had to sift through library books or encyclopedias back in the day. With information as well as keeping up to date with others at your fingertips, the way your child’s generation can access information brings about curiosity at convenience. With an array of tools already at our disposal, understanding the potential areas of growth will prove beneficial to expanding your child’s horizons and contributing to make meaningful work. Now, your child’s generation’s career drives will almost certainly involve making an impact as Gen Zs are truth-seekers and more conscious about the values behind companies. …


Hi everyone!

My name is Michele and I’m the new Head of Education at CoCoon Foundation. I joined CF in September but it feels like it’s been much longer than that because of all the exciting new projects and learning that’s happened in the past month and a half! CF is a friendly and energetic place to work; our team is motivated and self-driven and they surprise and inspire me with their creative ideas and ability to get things done. Here are a few photo highlights from my past few weeks here:

My first day at CoCoon! We had a Quarterly Show & Tell meeting and team lunch

有一些性格特點在現行教育制度中無法傳授的。它們從內形成,隨時間流逝,它們成為我們的一部分,其中一個特點就是創業精神。這些人表現出一種真正的熱情,不怕從零開始創造事物,他們願意推向極限來實現自己的目標。

這些人是你會想圍繞在你周圍,跟他學習的人。你不需要擁有一家價值數十億美元的企業或創建另一個Facebook,就可以展示具有創業精神的品質。哪麼為何擁創業精神這麼重要呢?

1. 你會勇敢面對挑戰

回想一下你和某人的最後一次談話,內容是圍繞著他們非常熱衷的事情,他們聲音中的信念和對這個話題的熱情是很吸引人的。熱情的人知道深入鑽研一個主題並完全理解它是什麼感覺。當創業家正在努力解決的問題真正充滿熱情時,他們將會被阻擋在他們前進道路上的任何挑戰所激勵。

轉化為熱情的關鍵在於辛勤投入,例如喜歡烹飪,想當廚師的 …

If your child’s birthday sits after the year 1996, chances are that they find it hard to recall life before a smartphone. Gen Zs are known as the multitaskers, the ‘digital natives’. While technology may appear to be second nature to them, Gen Zs certainly faces a unique set of challenges when it comes to crafting their career after education. Often, these are challenges that involve aspects they never even encountered in their younger years. With new innovations propping up as they move through their career, how can you, as a parent guide Gen Zs prepare themselves early?

Technology rendering us…

創業好像總是離我們很遠,我們需要在各方面都需要周全的準備,但事實是這樣嗎?我們來看一下大眾對創業的一些誤解。

迷思 1: 你需要大量金錢?

如果你有看過創業相關的內容,那你肯定常常聽到人們說風險投資或是天使投資者。我們對創業一個很大的誤解就是需要很大筆的起動資金才能成功創業。反過來看,我們需要的是,證明解決方案或產品能解決用戶的現有問題,那就自然能吸引投資者。

在大多數行業中,如果你的想法能解決一個真正的問題,你不需要龐大的投資就可以起步。有一些初創公司在沒有早期融資的情況下就獲得成功 — Shopify的創始人在創建售賣滑雪用品的電子商務網站時,尋找網上購物的解決方案。由於找不到,他們決定自己動手,在當時火熱的ROR框架上構建一個的解決方案。兩位創始人用他們產生的收入經營了整整六年。最終從投資者 …


The idea of entrepreneurship could be daunting to younger generations who don’t have exposure to the business world. However, in a world where industries and jobs unheard of now could prop up decade after decade, it is becoming increasingly important for your child to equip a set of skills that allows them to adapt to the future challenges and the future job market.

The words “entrepreneurship” and “education” might not look like the most obvious pairing next to each other. We associate entrepreneurship as a dynamic activity — risk-taking that leads to unguaranteed outcomes in the commercial world that could lead to unexpected returns. While traditionally, we associate education as a stable, linear progression through institutions where we develop hard skills, or “accumulate knowledge” to grow and acquire a world view. Putting the two together, entrepreneurship education is integrating steady personal growth within a fast-paced environment by introducing a dextrous mindset into education. Entrepreneurship education is particularly important for our youth because it is an opportunity for people to develop relevant skill sets by transforming ideas into value for others. In order to keep up with the fast-changing technological landscape, an increasing number of organisations around the world are encouraging employees to “think more like entrepreneurs” and less like the stereotypical employee — not only just to ensure that they are a fit for a particular organisation, but also prepared for future challenges that the world might face. …

Hey there! I’m Hannah :) Let me first share a bit about myself with you. Ever since I remember, I was always interested in art. I would spend most of my time coloring, doodling, and imagining. Following this path, I ended up going to an art school for college- Savannah College of Art and Design. I went in undecided with my major but ended up picking Industrial Design.

Many of their majors interested me but I picked Industrial Design because there was a graduate there that created a portable water filter that was made for people that couldn’t get access to clean water. …
