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 3 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 a three-part series of lunchtime virtual meetings, showcasing Hong Kong unicorns, connecting start-ups with corporates, and building a successful, sustainable innovation community in Hong Kong.

Join us on May 29 for the second session: Movement. As Hong Kong takes its first steps to re-open and re-start business activities, we will explore how start-ups in the logistics and transport space can speed up the road to recovery. Learn from a genuine Hong Kong unicorn how start ups can succeed in Hong Kong, and then hear four local start-ups present their pitches to our panel of corporate innovation judges.
