It was the third time for UIC to participate in the competition. During the Guangdong provincial competition, UIC students captured two Grand Prizes, two First Prizes, four Second Prizes, two Awards of Entrepreneurship, three Awards of Originality and one Award of Innovation.

Bake App

Bake App is based on the notions of a “sharing economy” and a “gig economy”. It creates value by generating a baked community and baked e-commerce as main functions and utilizing Internet technology to integrate fragment resources in bakeries.

Bake App is now in the final testing phase and expected to be launched in August.
