We had a very fruitful discussion with #eCommerce leaders and #entrepreneurs today. It is a part of the #Innopreneur Forum series organized by #HKPC. The Innopreneur Network aims to connect #SMEs with innovators and practitioners.

The main theme this time was “Successful eCommerce Strategies in the New Normal”. I have moderated 2 online discussion panels with the following guests.

To deliver successful eCommerce, there are quite a few challenges that we need to overcome like #Marketing#O2O integration, #Logistics#Warehousing#CrossBorder#Cost#Speed#DataAnalytics#DataPrivacy#DigitalReadiness#Financing#CashFlow and more.

Fortunately, we have built a vibrant eCommerce #ecosystem in Hong Kong. Merchants and SMEs can focus on marketing and #innovation. For the rest of these challenges, they can leverage the respective partners in the ecosystem. In the last 6 years, Hong Kong has cultivated 4,000+ #startups and 10+ #unicorns. They have been making pivotal impact and significant contribution to our society in this chaotic pandemic period.

After all, building trust among stakeholders in the ecosystem is key for success. We all learned a lot from the guest speakers. If you would like to watch the replay, please visit this webpage in a few days: https://lnkd.in/gbf7KMRV

In the coming episode of the #財智雙打 (or Financial Wisdom Duo) programme hosted by Michelle and the well-known investment expert #青姐#吳孟青 on Sun Mar 13 from 4pm to 5pm, I will share my insights on the #startups in Hong Kong. I have been cultivating quite a few startups in different stages as well as #intrapreneurs within enterprises. There are some interesting findings that I will talk about #entrepreneurs#entrepreneurship and #intrapreneurship in the show.

Stay tuned to #FM104 then.

Thanks Thomson Lai AECOM’s Asia Digital Leader for inviting me as a keynote speaker to get the passionate participants even more inspired for the hackathon. I chose the topic – “#Entrepreneurs: From Good to Great”. The participants are all good entrepreneurs already but what could differentiate them from good to great entrepreneurs. Solving the right problems right is the key. Appreciate #AECOMHK organizing such an impactful hackathon for Hong Kong and the great support from Madison Wai of Hill+Knowlton Strategies.

In the last 2 weeks, I am really grateful to contribute in different industries and professions, from #Engineering#Accounting#HR#ProjectManagement#Design, to #Banking#Insurance#SupplyChain and #Education, on how #innovation and #technologies or I&T made a difference. Our momentum on I&T in Hong Kong is unprecedented. Let’s transform #FromGoodToGreat. Keep it going!

Grateful to spend my weekend with elite tech entrepreneurs and business leaders to learn about emerging technologies and business innovation. It is one of my classes in #CUHK Mini MBA Innovative Leadership program. It aims to #upskilling busy executives and #entrepreneurs on the latest #leadership mindset and skills in the #DigitalEconomy through a series of short modules in a few months.
https://lnkd.in/g6Pe4bUM

I particularly like the mix of my class participants. We had quite a few startups’ founders and leaders like #Dayta, tech giants like #AWS, financial services like #HangSengBank, public sector like #HKHousingSociety and major ecosystem enabler like #HKSTP. My class in fact is a mini tech and innovation #ecosystem. One of the most valuable parts of this class was the team discussion and case studies where we could focus on the key aspects that our participants were most concerned and cared about in seizing the opportunities and managing the potential risks in the emerging digital economy.

Thanks for the active participation of all the students. Really enjoyed it and learnt from you all as well.

Influential leaders from the insurance industry shared their views on the opportunities and challenges in #GBA. Glad to meet two outstanding leaders of Hong Kong, Dr. Michael Chan 陳裕光博士 & JP Simon Wong 黃家和太平紳士. They were also judges of the awards.

Appreciate #MetroFinance #新城財經台 宋文禧先生, 魏美珍小姐, Alaric Chu 朱子昭 & teammates to organise this great awards. Our #InsurTech #entrepreneurs #startups will surely energize this growth further. Keep it going.

It was a fruitful day in #Cyberport together with Rocky Cheng #BOCHKMichael Leung #BOADr Wendy Woon Ming LEE #AutoDesk and Justin Leung #YCP. We were in the vetting meeting to select #startups to join Cyberport #Incubation Programme #CIP.

Again, quite a few passionate and elite #entrepreneurs applied for the programme. Great innovations on #FinTech#InsurTech#AI#EdTech#HealthTech#PropTech#DigitalEntertainment#LifeStyle#SmartCity, etc. Impressive that a few of them have already had footprint or have their plan and ambition to go after #ASEAN and #GBA markets.

Thanks Cyberport’s team Eric Chan Alice So William Lau Steve Lam and many others for all their effort behind the scene. Keep it going and add oil.

We had lunch in the Interval/Farmacy restaurant in Cyberport. They served vegetables from #Farmacy which use technologies to provide farming at store. Thanks Raymond Mak for making it happened there. Tasty and healthy plus nice environment.

Visited the #HKSTP #InnoCell together with Edmund Lee #TIN Chairman and Duncan Chiu #HKITJC Chairman today. #Wow.. It is amazing. It is another milestone for Hong Kong #Innovation and #Technology #Ecosystem. It is much more than a hotel providing accommodation for #startups to stay and live closer to their offices, labs and incubation centres.

The design of the InnoCell is a #collaboration #community with different types of open indoor and outdoor spaces for like minds #entrepreneurs to mingle, brainstorm and co-create values. Really impressive.

Congratulations and thank you to HKSTP to bring this first of its kind to Hong Kong and empower our ecosystem. More about the InnoCell here.
