InvestHK Startup Champions 2013


InvestHK’s StartmeupHK Venture Programme offered entrepreneurs from around the world the opportunity of a lifetime: a foothold in Hong Kong, Asia’s most effective start-up hub.

Launched last July 2013, the programme attracted overwhelming response. Entries came from some 380 entrepreneur-led companies in 39 countries and cities.

Twenty semi-finalists were selected in September, with 12 finalists picked to participate in the StartmeupHK Week in December 2013. The winners were:
  • Drikolor (NZ) - Polychromatic, Dry-Granulated Paint (top pic)
  • Hanson Robotics (US) - Humanoid Robot Manufacturer
  • Wifinity (IN) - Wireless Energy Management (bottom pic)

The founders received prizes worth about HKD 2M (USD 260K or MYR 850K), in professional services and work spaces for one year, provided by eight corporate sponsors. [Via HKTDC]
