Upcoming Events

Speed Recruiting
Matchmaking for Startups & Potential Hires
Sat 21 Oct 2017 | 10:30AM – 17:00PM HKT
at Dock@Work – Shared Workspace

Hong Kong has the 5th fastest growing startup ecosystem in the world, which saw a 41% increase in staff numbers in 2016. In fact, the deluge of co-working spaces in Hong Kong should be proof enough – more startups need more brains.

We are taking the oh-so familiar concept of speed dating and applying it to the otherwise monotonous process of recruiting. So if you can spare a few hours a week or are currently in between jobs, this is your chance to start a dialogue with startups that are looking for talent. Whether you are a programmer, a designer, a legal advisor or a financier, register now for a taste of the #StartupLife.
If you are from a niche field, write to us and we’ll look for a startup that would want you on their payrolls (if a startup has such a thing).

We have an interesting mix of early stage startups making their first couple of hires, looking to add exceptional, enthusiastic talent to their team, full-time and part-time. From seasoned professionals to fresh graduates, everyone is welcome to spend the day getting to know the startups better, winning over founders and hopefully paving the way for “second dates” aka interviews.
Email us if you are a startup looking to meet a particular kind of candidate and we’ll hunt them down from the remotest corners of Hong Kong.

Investor (After) Office Hours

All aboard the entrepreneur-ship have unanswered questions. We’re here to help answer them before you find yourself on a burning deck!

What does an investor look for in a startup? What is the process for fundraising? How much equity should I give away? What material should I prepare for an investor meeting?

Questions like these and more were answered during Office Hours with our in-house consultant, Atin Batra.

Atin is an Associate at Q Venture Partners, a global VC firm investing in connected hardware and IoT. Prior to QVP, he was the Accelerator Lead at Swire Properties’ Blueprint Accelerator. Atin has extensive experience mentoring and guiding startups through their journey from attaining product-market fit to fundraising.


Pitch Like A Girl @ Rise
Wed 12 July 2017 | 06:30 PM – 09:00 PM HKT

The first edition of Pitch Like a Girl, organised during RISE 2017, is a unique opportunity for women entrepreneurs, attending the conference from around the world, to return with their pockets heavier than when they arrived in Hong Kong.

We are overwhelmed by the response we’ve gotten! 180+ attendees registered to attend the event and 60+ women entrepreneurs from San Francisco, Hong Kong, Singapore, India, South Korea, and Australia-New Zealand among others, submitted applications to pitch. The top 10 finalists pitched in front of our investors on 12 July.
Congratulations Teams Sharesies, GoSkills, Baby Hero and Ozmo.

We streamed the event live on our Facebook page.
