Registration will close July 28, 2020 at

The global COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we do business, work, and create value all around the world. For example, in the past several months, we have all become Zoom & Microsoft Teams experts! While the rest of the world looks forward to re-opening economies after the pandemic, Hong Kong is also looking forward to recovering from months of social unrest. How will Hong Kong digitize, optimize, and strategize in a new normal, returning to economic growth and leadership? This new normal is a huge opportunity for Hong Kong to drive its transition to a digital economy and create a buoyant innovation ecosystem, linking corporates, start-ups and capital.

"Seed to Success" is an ongoing series of meetings, showcasing Inspiration, connecting start-ups with corporates, and building a successful, sustainable innovation community in Hong Kong.

Join us on July 28 for the third session: Enjoyment. As Hong Kong takes steps to re-open and re-start business activities, and we all begin to emerge from quarantines and work-from-home, we will explore how we get back to the arts, treat ourselves to retail therapy, and look forward to traveling again. Learn from the featured speaker of the Month how start-ups can succeed in Hong Kong, and then hear five local start-ups present their pitches to our panel of corporate innovation judges.
