Hong Kong offers an ideal foothold and a great opportunity for them to scale up and go global. Im glad to see that our message about Hong Kongs rapidly developing start-up ecosystem is spreading, which is one of the purposes of our StartmeupHK brand initiative and competition. As expected, most of those entries are from Hong Kong itself (178), but many were from other countries including the US (65), Israel (53), India (46) and the UK (30). Most of the startups are still in the concept or prototype stage, but a third are companies already earning revenue or with active users. Preliminary judging begins immediately as semi-finalists are selected, after which the field will be narrowed through face-to-face interviews down to 12 winners. Those 12 finalists will be flown to Hong Kong (where applicable) and participate in the StartmeupHK Week from November 10 to 14 in Hong Kong. On November 11, a panel of judges and Forum attendees will select three Grand Award Winners.
