INDEPENDENCE: Seizing the bull by the horns, launching bold initiatives and knowing how to fly solo – that’s also part of the Agorize philosophy!

By launching Agorize in Hong Kong, our ambition is to become THE missing link in Asia and create bridges between:

"The corporate world": large companies looking for Innovation & Talent

"The innovator world": Innovators (students, startups, geeks, etc) which want to be spotted, gain experience and awesome prizes

After helping thousands of talent from 145 countries, our ambition is to bring this vision to Asia. And it works, as after only 6 months of activities in Hong Kong, 5 leading companies have put their trust in us to help them innovate faster and better connect with talented individuals across Asia.
