The global COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we do business, work, and create value all around the world. For example, in the past several months, we have all become Zoom & Microsoft Teams experts! While the rest of the world looks forward to re-opening economies after the pandemic, Hong Kong is also looking forward to recovering from months of social unrest. How will Hong Kong digitize, optimize, and strategize in a new normal, returning to economic growth and leadership? This new normal is a huge opportunity for Hong Kong to drive its transition to a digital economy and create a buoyant innovation ecosystem, linking corporates, start-ups and capital.




"HK Startups Meet Multinational Companies Series" is an ongoing series of meetings, showcasing Inspiration, connecting start-ups with corporates, and building a successful, sustainable innovation community in Hong Kong.



Join us on August 28 for the fourth session: Knowledge. Education is being reshaped for students and teachers alike through new, innovative teaching methods, advancements in technology, and programs designed for a virtual world. So how can start-ups support the continued trend? For the next 18 months many predict there will be a balance of in-person and virtual as COVID continues to limit and challenge traditional learning. In Hong Kong's road to recovery meet some of the start-ups that will help strike a healthy balance, create new opportunities we have not thought of and be integral to the education sector.
