A global competition that aims to attract innovative startups from around the world to Hong Kong is now open.
StartmeupHK hopes to encourage companies to use the city as their global launchpad.
Last year’s competition and winners as well as Hong Kong’s growing tech ecosystem were covered in our most recent magazine. Make sure you register to get your free copy delivered.
A global base
For many startups, Hong Kong might be the ideal location to develop their company.
You are within a five hour flight from half the world’s population. Neighbouring China offers the largest pool of raw talent in the world and Hong Kong gives companies access to a huge R&D infrastucture.
Winners will be given a trip to Hong Kong as well as a number of other prizes.
Startups that wish to apply can be from one of two categories:
- Early to growth stage ventures with revenue and/or significant users/customers
- Startups at the concept and prototype stage with no revenue
