Cyberport is a creative digital community with a cluster of over 300 technology and digital tenants. It is managed by Hong Kong Cyberport Management Company Limited which is wholly owned by the Hong Kong SAR Government. With a vision to establish itself as a leading information and communications technology (ICT) hub in the Asia-Pacific region,
Cyberport is committed to facilitating the local economy by nurturing ICT industry start-ups and entrepreneurs, driving collaboration to pool resources and create business opportunities, and accelerating ICT adoption through strategic initiatives and partnerships. Equipped with an array of state-of-the-art ICT facilities and a cutting-edge broadband network, the Cyberport community is home to four grade-A intelligent office buildings, a five-star design hotel, and a retail entertainment complex.
The group, led by Hong Kong Cyberport CEO Herman Lam, brought 15 of their hottest startups to present in front of a panel of judges composed of Plug and Play investors and Executives in Residence. There are a host of reasons that Hong Kong is an extremely exciting place for startups. Hong Kong has the infrastructure as well as the economy to capitalize on a consistently innovative local talent base, and the citizens have a heightened global sensibility that speaks to the city's unique history.
According to Herman, "There is a lot of talent. People in Hong Kong are very international, but at the same time they know about China. We are a part of China, but we are facing the world." As a Chinese city with a globalized community, Hong Kong stands as a perfect starting point for foreign companies looking to become acquainted with the region.
