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.

Glad to meet many friends, #entrepreneurs#investors and #incubatees #face2face #f2f in #HKSTP #LEAP gathering in their #InnoCentre in Kowloon Tong.

LEAP stands for the Leading Enterprises Acceleration Programme. It is a flagship growth-stage business acceleration programme from #HKSTP. It empowers elite #startups for their global expansion. Harris SUN, the CEO of #Raspect is a member of LEAP and has been growing well into key markets in Asia and the world.

Really appreciate the leaders from #HKSTP Peter Mok Kiki Y. Wang, CFA, MBA Anvil Ng and many more for their contributions and effort to cultivate elite startups for Hong Kong to become global leaders. Keep it going. 加油!

#SME #Digitalisation is not a yes or no question anymore. It is a question of how. Several months ago, I had a discussion with Karen F. & Marius Chow from 香港生產力促進局 #HKPCAcademy on this after I have published my book #數碼力大提升.

How can we bring the wisdom of SME leaders, innovative #entrepreneurs from #startups & #professionals together, and generate sustainable synergy among these experts? How other SMEs, which have just started or not yet begun their digitalisation journey, could learn from this #community of experts? That was the start of this #InnoPreneur #platform.

#HKPC has done a great job to put these all together. You will see experience sharing forums on major industries, #startups solutions showcase for these industries, subject matter experts to interact with audiences in live #KOL style, #eClincs where SMEs can meet experts for #consultation, startup showcase & certainly #training#workshops & site visits.

Please join our 1st #InnoPreneur Forum on #FoodTech #FoodIndustry on Mar 26. HKPC will further share our year-long InnoPreneur Series. All SMEs, startups & #ecosystem stakeholders are welcome to join. Thanks so much for #HKPC teams to make this happen. See you.

Glad to be back to #Cyberport and joined the vetting committee of the Cyberport #Incubation Programme #CIP. The committee has reviewed a series of presentations from the shortlisted applicants through Zoom. Impressive innovations from the applicants.

Very pleased to see that the programme has been improved a lot from the time that I was leading it in the capacity of the Chief Public Mission Officer there. Thanks for the leadership from Eric ChanAlice So and the effort from her team. This programme has nurtured quite a few elite #startups in Hong Kong like #GoGoX (#GoGoVan#Klook #Shopline #Lynk #TNG #Origami #FindSolutionsAI #Toby and more.

Cyberport selects over 100 start-ups per year to join its incubation programme. Mentoring, funding, customers, investors and partners matching, marketing, professional services, mainland and overseas expansion, and more are some of the key values that the incubatees can gain from the programme.

Happy to see and partner with good friends Charleston SinRaymond Wing Fung CHAN, CFT® Stephen Lau and LM Chow to help Cyberport to cultivate the next generation of #entrepreneurs for Hong Kong. I also shared my book #數碼力大提升 with them. Thank you guys.

#ASEAN is the #NextBigThing for startups from #HongKong#GreaterBayArea #GBA as well as #mainland #startups. ASEAN has close to 650 million people with growing number of middle class and millennials.

On one hand, the local startup ecosystems in ASEAN countries are heating up with rapidly-rising middle class, great government initiatives for tech startups, #VC and #CVC investors’ appetite on tech, certainly innovative #entrepreneurs and more. #GoJek and #Tokopedia from #Indonesia#Lazada and #Razor from #Singapore#Grab from #Malaysia #Singapore#VNG from #Vietnam, just name a few. On the other hand, it has huge opportunities for startups from HK, GBA and mainland startups.

Join me to explore with entrepreneurs who have been working on their ventures in 5 major ASEAN countries including #Singapore #Malaysia #Indonesia #Thailand #Vietnam. Thanks for #HKPC Hong Kong Productivity Council to organize the forum.

Thanks for Edmund Lee and his teammates at #HKDC Hong Kong Design Centre to organize this year’s #KODW Knowledge of Design Week with theme on Designing Digital Future. It is a hybrid of virtual and physical conference with renowed #design and #digital experts around the globe as speakers.

Edmund’s team really gave us an excellent example of what the HK Design Centre always empowers us i.e. #CustomerCentricity. I can feel the details and processes that his team has been putting together to run this conference and helping every speaker and panelist in such a difficult period under Covid-19. Well done and appreciate it, team.

My discussion with Romeo Durscher from #DJI was very fruitful. One of the key takeaways for me is how his company connects many experts in #Drone#AI#MachineLearning and #BigData around the world through #Crowdsourcing and #SharingEconomy to build innovative models, technologies and applications to solve lots of problems in natural disasters, safety, health, etc.

For all #innovators and #entrepreneurs, while we may make money from our innovations, it is more important how we can make use of technologies to save lives and do social good. Great lesson today. Thanks Romeo.
