“Startup” Zone a hotbed for inventors to showcase innovations
Electronics pioneers in Hong Kong’s flourishing startup ecosystem will be the focus of a dedicated zone at next month’s Hong Kong Electronics Fair (Autumn Edition).
Organiser HKTDC has launched the Startup Zone providing around 100 startups from around the world an opportunity to showcase their innovative products in categories such as smart home, wearable electronics, 3D printing, IoT devices and e-health and fitness.
A series of events including pitching, mentoring, sharing sessions and product launches over the four-day event will connect startups with prospective partners, investors and customers from all over the world.
Anyone can attend the Startup Zone, and – if you register through this link – you can save $100 as a reader of Inside Retail Hong Kong.
At an earlier edition of the Hong Kong Electronics Fair, the zone received high praise from participants.
“We brought together over 20 angel investors here to listen to presentations by various startups at pitching session,” explained Dr Samson Tam, chairman of the Hong Kong Business Angel Network. “The session drew some strong responses. The Startup zone is getting more exciting with a lot of activities coming into play to gain exposure.”
Steven Kayalicos, director of The Product Group from Australia, said he was impressed by the zone’s broad offer of new technologies, ideas and products.
“It is likely that I’ll co-operate with two to three startups that I met at the pitching event,” he said.
The HKTDC Hong Kong Electronics Fair (Autumn Edition) 2017 will be held from October 13-16 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
