There has been keen interest from parties in the Hong Kong Startup ecosystem to collaborate and come together to build this community. This includes prominent entrepreneur hubs, startup incubators, startup communities and individuals who are active in the startup ecosystem in Hong Kong.

IndiaTech Hong Kong, has been actively connecting India and the China Greater Bay area, is organising an event on 25th January during StartmeupHK festival, in association with Metta, focused on Hong Kong's role in bridging India & China Greater Bay. We will be having a Keynote on India-China Gateway, Demos of Indian Startups and a panel discussion on Hong Kong's role. IndiaTech Hong Kong has previously organised sold out events on Indian Startups, including a pitch competition supported by Consul General of India, during Rise 2018 which had over 650 startup applications.
