When it comes to “AppTask Limited”, it has won awards such as the “Hong Kong Outstanding Corporate Citizenship Award” and the “HSBC Living Business Award”. They do their best to accomplish their corporate social responsibilities. Many companies don’t tend to pay of importance to this concept as in some counties, the practice of corporate social responsibility is not mandated. AppTask, though, has made sure to do what’s best not only for their company, but for their society as well as shown through their awards. AppTask also has clients ranging from local to multinational companies such as MTR, McDonalds, Hong Kong Disneyland, and Red Bull.

His various knowledge, due to his degrees in both mechanical engineering and computer and information systems, have led him to make wise decisions. Another form of entrepreneurship that he has participated in would be TeamNote. TeamNote considers itself as a mobile productivity platform and has been featured in both TechCrunch and Forbes. Since its formation, it has won awards such as the “Hong Kong ICT Awards”. Advice towards reaching success: 

I strongly believe in sharing”

Roy Law, Chairman of WTIA

If there was one thing that he would like to give as a key to success, it would be to “share” as seen through his experiences in 2015 from being in Silicon Valley where sharing ideas is very common. It is unlike other places in the world where businesses tend to keep their business ideas or strategies to themselves in fear of them being stolen. Silicon Valley, an entrepreneurial ecosystem, is where many startups share their ideas in order to get feedback and can become successful. Sharing, therefore, is a great way to succeed as stated by Mr. Law.
