Join us at RISE in 2 weeks time
–I’m excited to announce that Casey Lau will co-host RISE with me in Hong Kong in 2 weeks time. When I first met Casey in Hong Kong I was so impressed by his incredible passion for helping Hong Kong startups succeed. It was infectious. He loves startups, and he’s the perfect co-host of our inaugural conference in Asia. Casey is leading a series of initiatives in the build-up to RISE for Hong Kong’s startup community, details of which he’s been sharing on Twitter. More than 80 startups from Hong Kong will be at RISE. Many of them will battle it out in their very own pitching competition – Breakthrough HK. Casey and our team have put together something special to get the best unfunded startups built in Hong Kong to pitch on stage. The competition is open to any HK startup that has received little to no funding and is no more than 12 months old. The top 20 startups will present in front of distinguished investor panels and influential media.
