Hotline-killer Skipmenu emerged from stealth mode a few weeks ago, releasing on Android and iPhone. Over 800 Hong Kong hotlines are on the app, including those of the Inland Revenue Department (IRD), which expects a stark increase of phone enquiries during tax season.

We Are HK Founders Panel and Hong Kong Startup Ecosystem Leaders at the RISE Breakthrough Stage

weareHKfounders

RISE is a global conference that takes place in Hong Kong, with hundreds of investors and startups with eyes on the Asian market flying in to learn more, network more and invest more.

Only 1/5th of attendees and exhibitors are from Hong Kong, so this year we wanted to make sure that at this year’s event we made sure everyone knows about the power of the Hong Kong ecosystem with our fresh new campaign We Are HK Founders!

RISE were kind enough to set aside a stage for us to program introductions to the leaders in the startup community in Hong Kong and that is what the BREAKTHROUGH stage is all about.

You can check the schedule at RISEconf.com for the breakdown on June 2 (click on BREAKTHROUGH on the left menu) but one of the highlight panels will be the StartupsHK/KPMG We Are HK Founders talk with 6 of our most game changing founders based in Hong Kong.

The point of this is to show off the amazingly diverse founders that call Hong Kong their home and their base of operations for their startups and learn about the challenges on setting up here and what their plans are for conquering the world from this amazing city we call home.
