About the event

As technology is impacting people, businesses and governments faster than they can adapt, education is playing a key role to provide the right tools for adaptation. In the context of Hong Kong, Human Capital Development will be a critical success factor for the successful development of FinTech both within incumbents and start-ups. Janos will therefore talk about:

  • The importance of continuous learning
  • How one can prepare themselves for Finance 2.0

Hong Kong used to be on the forefront of fintech, introducing the Octopus card 20 years ago, before anywhere else. Hong Kong has now fallen behind other markets, but with more and more promising fintech start-ups entering, the city is catching up. During this seminar, David will talk about:

  • What is necessary to bring Hong Kong back as a leading location to do business
  • What it’s like to establish a fintech firm in Hong Kong
  • The opportunities and challenges Hong Kong offers to fintech start-ups.
