We’re very excited to have 3 fresh new mobile startups from Hong Kong at the Mobile Challenge Asia Pacific in Honolulu, Hawaii next week.

The Mobile Challenge Asia Pacific (MCAP) is a mobile startup competition that brings together entrepreneurs from 9 countries to meet and compete in order to qualify for 3 places at the GSMA Barcelona Conference World Finals in 2016. The challenge is organised by J-Seed Ventures and IE Business School in conjunction with GSMA and is sponsored in part by SoftLayer – an IBM Company.

Representing Hong Kong are:

  • SwapIt: Buy/Sell/Trade stuff in location-based smartphone app.
  • uSpace: Marauders Map for workspaces via smartphone.
  • Spincle: Create your own VR content, distribute everywhere via smartphone.

These new teams will be competing against 24 other startups from around Asia to be 3 of the finalists to be flown in to compete in Barcelona at GSMA! This is amazing viability for Hong Kong teams and we are happy to have 3 of our newest and most exciting startups out there to represent HK on a global stage.

The East Meets West 2016 conference will also be taking place next week in Honolulu and some local familiar faces like our own Casey Lau, Cyril Ebersweiler from HAX and our good friend Dave McClure of 500 Startups.

Congrats to the teams and good luck on stage!
