Hong Kong is fast-becoming known as a global innovation and technology hub with five R&D centres, focused on bringing innovations to commercialisation.

Positioning itself as the post-pandemic gateway to China and ASEAN, Hong Kong offers various venture capital funds for start-ups, as well as initiatives and funding schemes to develop innovation and technology infrastructure, and boost research and development. Services are also available from the Hong Kong SAR government for commercialisation.

How can you leverage the resources and support in Hong Kong to turn research outcomes into commercial opportunities and successfully grow your start-up? Join this free webinar to find out the answers.
