Description

Join us on The UWaterloo Velocity Pitch and Investor Demo Day Sponsored by Liu Kuo-Chun Educational Foundation!

In celebration of the 60th anniversary of UWaterloo, we will be inviting 6 Velocity teams to Hong Kong to participate to do a demo day to Hong Kong and regional investors.

Velocity is a leading entrepreneurship program at the University of Waterloo, and the largest free startup incubator in the world.

In addition to the chance to meet investors, teams are also inducted to the Hong Kong/China market and business culture. They will have to be introduced to business consultants, prototyping providers, and understand much more about this enormous market and its stellar potential. Companies are expected to be seed round or early stage.
