Rosana – HK's Own Wonder Woman
Like Wonder Woman who has remained in the background for some time, Rosana has finally stepped forward now that Invotech has found her. She is eloquent and subtle, never boastful since we've known her. Since stepping out in the limelight, we have found that she's led these difficult initiatives and nearly all are contributing to building our very own Smart City. Here are some highlights:
Construction-wise, Rosana created the world's greenest hotel and pioneered 5D Building Information Modelling in 2009, here in Hong Kong, as certified through HK's BEAM Plus, US' LEED, Singapore's Green Mark and China's Green Building Design Label and further developed OpenBIM Full Lifecycle Management Approach for an own development under Urban Renewal Authority's Demand-Led Redevelopment Project to transform old neighbourhoods into smarter communities.
On the other hand, she created Ophylla Ventures to seed 12 startups for Smart City development along four pillars (infrastructure, environment, care, transformation) for HK, the Greater Bay Area, and Belt and Road Countries. One of them is even providing autonomous vehicles at the HK Science Park today. She also funded two labs in HK and the UK, HKU's Joint Lab on Future Cities and Royal College of Art's Future Cities Lab, to bring disparate parties together, through a Private, Public, Global Academic Partnership (PPGAP® ) model, to study and explore the impact of new technologies on building resilient environment, IoT structures, harmonious living, clean energy, smart transportation, deep learning, knowledge and innovation, towards an innovative and new Future City.
She's doing all these during her spare time because she's also the Executive Director of Yau Lee Holdings Limited. And a member of a dozen boards, playing director and advisory roles.
More importantly, she has rarely claimed credit for anything she has done. But we can't lose that Wonder Woman. You need to stand up and become a leader for others to emulate. Our youth needs a hero.
