Hong Kong Startup Ecosystem

Hong Kong is one of the most accessible places in the world to start a business; this makes it very attractive for startup founders. You can found and register a company in Hong Kong in a matter of hours. 

A free economy, connection to Asia, historical ties with Europe, and low taxation make it one of the most lucrative places to do business. It’s a great base if you want to grow your business in China or other Asian locations. 

The city also continues to rank as a global financial hub making it an excellent place to secure capital. Numerous grants and support systems from the Hong Kong government also encourage entrepreneurship and innovation in the city. The Innovation and Technology Fund covers research and development, supports SMEs, and funds technology adaptation. 

A young, ambitious, well-educated population is driving disruption in many industries. This contributes to a rapidly growing (5th fastest in the world) diverse ecosystem. 

Hong Kong has its fair share of unicorns, including BitMex (a crypto trading platform), GoGoVan (an app for transporting goods), and Lalamove (Asia’s leading delivery platform).

There are several initiatives in Hong Kong to support entrepreneurs. These include the Alibaba Hong Kong Young Entrepreneurs Foundation, a fund to support startups with capital and technical support. The Hong Kong Business Angels Network connects angel investors with educational institutions.

GrowthMentor was built upon the idea that every situation is unique, so generic courses and blog posts just don’t cut it sometimes.

To actually solve your issue you need to connect with someone who’s “been there done that” and have a back-and-forth conversation about the particular roadblock you are facing at this very moment.

Here are some tips.

  • Come into this with realistic expectations. They’re mentors, not magicians.
  • Ask your mentor if they’d be ok with you recording your screen with Loom
  • Give contextual information to help paint the picture of your current situation.
  • Growth mentors will be asking you lots of questions, answer them as openly as possible.
  • Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of question-asking.
  • Be inquisitive. Stories are gold.
  • Don’t feel pressure, just relax.
  • Try to form mental patterns, especially if you speak with multiple mentors.
  • Embrace alternative views. Ask the mentors to challenge your assumptions.
  • Be friendly. If you’re likable, the mentors will be your biggest supporters (even after the call is over)

Use dynamic filters to find the perfect mentor for you with the right expertise, language, time zone, and availability you need.
