BootUP! – 10 Lessons Learned from HK’s First Startup Weekend Incubator – BootHK – Hong Kong Startup, Maker, and Cowork Community


This last weekend (Nov 19-21) was the first startup weekend incubation event in Hong Kong ever, and things went really, really well. The event was a bit of an ongoing learning experiment and test of the new BootHK facilities, being the first major event we’ve hosted here in the month of operation. 

We had a total of 19 participants building startups over the weekend, along with many great local entrepreneurs who dropped by to help mentor and give feedback over the 48 hours (well, 50 hours, to be exact).

This is a bit more in depth writeup of what happened during the BootUP! weekend. Would enjoy hearing more from the participants to get feedback on their experiences.
