Half of the awesomeness of the past Startup Saturday: Mobilliance 2013 (besides the rockstar startups) were of course the speakers – and while we prepare the videos of the talks from our event here are the decks presented by the speakers.

We specifically chose these speakers, not only because they are very passionate about mobile and that being based in Hong Kong they will give you the lowest-BS talk you’ll find about doing a mobile startup in HK, but because they are awesome. Every single one of our speakers is a leader in their respected fields and we are very honored to have them all speak.

We also want to give a big shout-out to Stephen Forte of AcceleratorHK, who made Mobilliance 2013 his last public speaking engagement in Hong Kong as he is bound for Palo Alto to launch Mach 5 – his new US-based accelerator with his company Telerik.
