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.
Does your Hong Kong start-up have technology and innovation that can help on Hong Kong's road to recovery? Want to present your pitch to leading global corporations like Microsoft, Google and HSBC, and learn from the Inspiration of the Month?
In this ongoing series from AmCham Innovation and Technology Committee, Hong Kong start-ups will have the opportunity to present their pitches to executives from leading global and Hong Kong corporations. This is just part of what you will experience at AmCham. Don't miss out on these unique opportunities to connect with Global Tech Leaders, Inspiration of the Month and the Start-up of the Month:
