The City

The Sourcing Hub Of The World

Did you know that Hong Kong is the fifth fastest growing startup ecosystem globally and ranks 25th in the world? These are driven by the city's supportive incubators and accelerators, the strong funding support for startups and a pool of investors - plus, its world-class financial industry status. Hong Kong’s strategic location next to the hardware manufacturing cluster of the Pearl River Delta including Shenzhen, with its globally competitive (if not leading) hardware prototyping and manufacturing capabilities, translates into a strategic growth opportunity in relations to IoT and wearables.
