What an action packed week for the Startup Community in Hong Kong!! With 7 full days of over 40 events across the city, Startmeup Week was definitely the “Talk of the Town” in November.
From panel discussions to business workshops; networking cocktails to cowork space Open House. There’s always something for everyone.. in this diverse startup ecosystem. :) The most anticipated event of the week was the StartmeupHKVenture Forum where 6 finalists of the programme presented their pitches to compete for the StartmeupHK Grand Award 2014! Some other highlights of the week include Nest Demo Day and the annual TEDx Hong Kong event at Science Park.
And here at Garage Society, as a supportive entrepreneurial workspace, we hosted CleanTuesday’s event with Hong Kong based green startup Ambi Labs. They shared with us their success with raising funds via Kickstarter and taking their business global!
On the same evening, we also housed David Zhu from Divide, a productivity app that got acquired by Google for $120 million USD!! Thanks to Startup Grind for inviting such elite entrepreneurs as speakers!
Last but not least, I got a chance to attend the “Rise of Smart Hardware” panel hosted by our very own Garager, Bay McLaughlin from
! It was fascinating to learn how investors, founders, manufacturers and developers come together to “give birth” to a technology gadget from merely an idea into a product! Hard to believe all these amazing events happened in a week? And I only covered a tip bit of it. Follow us on
