How You Like Me Now? Photo Gallery from Startup Saturday: Mobilliance 2013


We’ve finally brought the event that started it all back to Hong Kong with Startup Saturday: Mobilliance 2013 and what an amazing return it was!

On 12 October 2013, at The Vine Centre in Wan Chai, 300 startups, entrepreneurs, media and investors spent a day at our 1-day conference hearing from all types of mobile startups – from Yat Siu of Animoca to Junde Yun of AppAnnie all the way from Beijing to Stephen Forte of AceeleratorHK’s final live talk on cross-platform before he leaves to open his new accelerator in Palo Alto – even though it was a long weekend it was THE startup event to be at in Hong Kong this year and we are very proud and happy of the community we’ve helped build over the past 3 years.

Fret not there will be more – we’re planning the crowdfunding conference now for either a December or January date. And we have a few other events planned in between those as well.

In the meantime have a look at this amazing photo gallery put together by photographer Martin Bednar.
