Startups x UX Event: How do Successful Startups Leverage UX?

wsd

Remember a few years ago (5 actually now) when we kicked off The UX-Men – a UX-themed series of meetups? Well, we are finally back with a new event next week to get startups to look closer at UX and UI as Hong Kong drives design thinking into the cold hearts of HK-based corporates.

The idea for this is to start more dialogue between the UX community and the startup community and StartupsHK co-founders Casey Lau and Gene Soo are coming out for this one alongside the IXDA and UXD.

So in light of the Startmeup Festival next week across Hong Kong we thought we’d contribute this awesome event to get startups discussing this important concept – its free at Garage Society and all you have to do is REGISTER HERE.

RISE is Not Just a Tech Conference; it’s All About the Networking on the Ferry, Yum Cha and More!

Isn’t a technology conference featuring ‘startups’ also just listening to seminars or exchanging a few name cards?

Having chatted with Casey Lau, Head of Asia of RISE, we realised that RISE is not only constrained to the exhibition space and that it will bring the hype all over the community – a number of co-working spaces, on the ferry and even in a car. Startups can exchange intelligence and network even during karaoke or yum cha.

Such an exhibition sounds very interesting!

Aiming to facilitate the interaction and communication among exceptional startups, investors, and global media, RISE is an international startup event organised by an Irish team named Web Summit. Now in its third year, RISE is building on its previous successes and expecting 15,000 attendees to join this year. RISE is undoubtedly this year’s most well-known and anticipated startup event in Hong Kong.
