Not a traditional venture capital fund, our model is to bring together a group of angels and investors who each put in $10,000.
CITIES ON TOUR
Canada’s leading Startup event, in partnership with Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP), will host one hundred of Hong Kong’s most promising startups as they pitch a panel of investors and experts, hoping to secure fame and funding. Each entrepreneur has only the time it takes to ride the elevator to the top of the International Commerce Centre (ICC), Hong Kong’s tallest building, to convince judges they’re the best. 10 Startups will be shortlisted for the prize. Amongst the 10, 3 finalists will be selected and brought back for further questioning. There will be one winner of the investment prize!
