Last night was our 2nd #StartClub this year and we were very honored to have Simon Newstead, cofounder and CEO of Frenzoo share his experience in building a business with us. Having gone through several iterations, pivots and also phases in internet technologies, Simon shared with us some great insights into how he adapted and found success time after time. Their current mobile game, Me Girl, has been performing well and they are already hard at work at their next game!

Steve Forte of Accelerator HK also gave a brief introduction about the latest incubator in Hong Kong. They are still looking for more applicants so if you’ve got an idea and you’d like to get funded, mentored and housed, apply here!

The night’s theme was Mobile and we had three mobile startup pitches, they are:

And to top that off, we finished off with a raffle of two prizes:

  • A free company set up sponsored by HK Commons – won by Marcel Ekkel

  • A Nexus 7 sponsored by us brought back all the way from US by my 6waves colleague. (Thanks Andrew!)

#SUMHK March 12th – Simon Newstead: Impossible is Nothing (Getting Angel Funding in Hong Kong and Singapore)

Simon_newstead

You have a great product or idea, and you need some cash to make it happen. But where do you even start? I’ll share practical tips on what to do and what not to do when pitching Angels in HK/SG, and how to find them in the first place. 

Through it I’ll chat about my totally unsuccessful and then ultimately successful experience raising an angel round here. It should be a fun discussion.

The meeting will be held at BootHK, 19/f, 231 Queen’s Road East at 7:30pm.
