It was my first time to have an avatar in my panel. Can you find him in the photo? His name is “Inno”. What a way to discuss about the Next Big Thing – #MetaVerse in our Innopreneurs eForum today! Thanks for Karen F., Elly Yip and their teammates from #HKPC and Dr. Angus Ho and his teammates from HK Institute of Marketing #HKIM to make all these happened.
Certainly, the core team in our panel was the experts on MetaVerse including Chris So#AWS, Willy Wong#EY, Sam Ngan#Popsible and Rex Wong Hong Kong Blockchain Industry Association. Over 400 audiences (online) mainly #SMEs joined this forum. It demonstrated that MetaVerse excited not only large companies, startups and investors, but also #SMEs. Appreciate the valuable sharing from all of the guest speakers in my panel.
We explored from what MetaVerse is to applications, business models and underlying technologies like #Web3, #NFT, #Blockchain, #Cryptocurrency, #VR, #Cloud and more. We also talked about the roles of major stakeholders in the MetaVerse #ecosystem.
It is only the beginning of our Innopreneurs MetaVerse Series. Stay tuned for the rest of the series in the next few months. Check out HKPC 香港生產力促進局 website for more https://lnkd.in/gY57pzgW
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
Thanks 香港生產力促進局 #HKPCAcademy#HKPCInnoSpace#SMEOneKaren F.Elly YipDAPHNE HO and many unsung heros behind the scene for organizing it. Also, appreciate all supporting organizations.
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.
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.
