[Event] Invitation to join EntreLink x HKPC Regional InnoTech Summit from 28th to 30th April 2021

Together with the Hong Kong Productivity Council (HKPC) as the co-organiser, EntreLink will organise “Regional InnoTech Summit (the Summit)”, which is a key initiative to promote and bridge promising Hong Kong startups to key decision-makers of the technology & innovation ecosystem in the GBA and ASEAN cities.

The Summit aims to serve as an effective channel for local startups and corporates to explore opportunities, seek consultation and connect with key players locally and regionally. It comprises events such as panel discussions, regional conferences, business matching sessions and eClinics. These events are due to take place from 28th to 30th April on an online platform.

One of the Summit highlights is regional conferences throughout the 3-day event. We are honoured to have invited a number of important local and regional guests to provide valuable insights on the startup opportunities under new normal in Hong Kong, GBA and ASEAN cities from both macroeconomic and go-to-market perspectives. We believe that participants will gain a better understanding of the latest market trends and customer needs as well as easy access to exploring overseas opportunities especially in GBA and ASEAN cities.

Apart from the informative and inspiring webinars, another highlight of the summit is the Startup Presentation and Business Matching Sessions. 3 of such sessions will be held, each with a different business type focus and startups will enjoy a 5-min pitch to our corporate panellists to earn feedback for the next steps. This session is an exciting opportunity for startups to showcase their solutions or products and enjoy an elevator pitch to key decision-makers, and at the same time, allowing corporate leaders to get to know the latest technology and innovative solutions.

The Summit welcomes the participation of different stakeholders such as startups, corporates, investors and government bodies. For details about the rundown, please refer to the Appendix below.
