Your #StartmeupHK Guide


The (first one we’ve seen)Guide

Been hearing a lot about #startmeupHK week? We’ve compiled a list. Our dragons, an intern and veteran #startmeupHK attendee sum it all up for you straight.

Essentially, the week is split into events revolving on major topics:

  1. FinTech Finals 2016 (Sold out)
  2. Launch Consumer IoT Summit 
  3. Health Tech Asia
  4. Venture Forum (Invite only + full)
  5. “The Changing Face of Commerce” Seminar (Data Analytics)

Can’t make it? There will also be a live video feed here.

The website itself  is a bit tricky, it’s not so clear what’s going on where.

In five minutes, skip over and go to the Events ab.


A lot of the events are sold out or invite only.

As of today, here’s a list of events you can still register for. We looked at all the other events and they’re either invite only or registration is no longer available.
