Who We Are

We are WeShare Technology, started by HKUST students with different backgrounds. We are trying to bring digital transformation to university laboratories through the Internet of Things (loT) and other technologies. Our future goal is to make R&D laboratories smarter and more sustainable and, finally, have a global digital lab community. 

Managing the R&D lab is tedious and inefficient for both students and technicians. Chemicals are time-sensitive, and tracking their storage condition and purchasing them timely is nearly impossible. Based on active and passive RFID technologies, we build an ecosystem that combines software and hardware to automatically track and manage the chemicals using a smart system to solve these pain points. The smart system can optimize chemical usage and facilitate productivity in the lab.

Our Technology

Smart and Sustainable in hardware and software

Our Technology is a reagent tray system with an intelligent tracking function, including hardware and software. 


The hardware unit is an expandable tray structure based on Radio Frequency Identification / Near-Field Communication technology (RFID/NFC) and multiple-sensor-integrated tags. 

The SaaS (Software as a Service) platform takes charge of cloud data collection/computing and data visualization showcase based on the progressive web and phone application. 

The blockchain technique is embedded in the back end to ensure the fairness of the chemical sharing system.

Convenient Sharing

We have applied for one Chinese patent and several software copyrights. More are under preparation. Our core idea and tech have been presented as paper and poster at IEEE conferences. We won two local and national entrepreneurship competitions. Two local HK news media also interviewed us. Up to now, we have obtained more than 3 million HKD funds or awards, including HKUST SSC, OKT, EC, and HKSTP Ideation. Half of the fund goes for manpower, while the rest is used for technology iteration and business validation.

We would highlight that due to the user-oriented features and high compatibility with the current lab facilities, Professors, Lab managers, and Infrastructure Vendors can be our solid channels for business expansion.

So far, we have established cooperation with diverse vital partners.

Several UST labs are trialing our products, and our newly launched GZ campus also gave the pre-orders to our company.

We obtained experts from CUHK EE Department as the technology partners. For the business channels in GBA, Guangdong U of T is our close friend for trial and promotion.

Our concept and service won the hearts of university labs and were admitted by HKSTP Ideation for further business coaching.

We also approached HK JEBN and Hestia Kitchen, two local food industry companies, for customized designs.
