Background:
There has been keen interest from parties in the Hong Kong Startup ecosystem to collaborate and come together to build this community. This includes prominent entrepreneur hubs, startup incubators, startup communities and individuals who are active in the startup ecosystem in Hong Kong.

To kick start the process, we are proposing to have an IndiaTech community event as a satellite event during the Startmeup HK Festival Week in end of January. This would be one of many events to engage the community and build awareness of Indian Startup ecosystem. Secondly, this would be a good platform to act as a bridge between India and Hong Kong, and as an extension with China. Our Partners are listed below:
