Programme HighlightsThe tech startup ecosystem in Hong Kong has been grown rapidly in the last few years. However, Hong Kong is still lagging behind in access to Angel, venture capital, or any kinds of investors and the opportunities to move forward to the next stage (i.e. local brandings, make in HK, etc.) is comparably having smaller room. On the other hand, Hong Kong Government has launched new policies to support the local tech startups via Hong Kong Science and Technology Park Corporation. Some successful stories had been reported by the media from the past 2 years.
