04.12.2019, 8:45 am - 2:45 pm

Panel I 8:45am
Panel II 10:30am
Panel III 14:45pm

Innovation and technology is witnessing rapid growth in its scale and speed. India and China, being homes to the world’s largest and most influential entrepreneurial ecosystems, are forging different paths to support their innovative and entrepreneurial ecosystem. Hong Kong, which is among the world’s leading international financial centers, with its unique advantages, can develop as an important innovation and entrepreneurial bridge as these Asian companies internationalize. The convergence between these three ecosystems has the potential to play a critical role in the growth, funding and collaborative opportunities for these entrepreneurs and innovators. The panels on “Innovating True Competitive Advantage”, “Towards a More Efficient Venture Market” and “Hong Kong as an Innovation Bridge between India and China” will provide a platform for some of the leading entrepreneurs from India, Hong Kong and China, across industries, to share their experiences of how they build their companies, raised financing and the challenges and potential areas of collaboration between them. The panelists will compare and contrast the three entrepreneurial ecosystems, best practices and their outlook at the collaborative opportunities between Hong Kong, India and China.
