The Success of the First H3 Has Everything to Do with the Huge Hong Kong Startup Ecosystem

The Joker once said “madness is a lot like gravity, all it takes is a little push,” and as we like to equate “madness” with “startups” – we decided to create H3.

Last week we held our first H3 event – something we’ve been planning for awhile but just never had the time to put together: put programmers, designers and product people into a room, mix with drinks and pizza and see what happens!

Any success that StartupsHK has had over the past few years, in terms of events and networking mixers, is really because of the amazing people that are inside the community. We feel extremely blessed to be part of this community and even from our Startup Saturday event in October to the H3 last week we know Hong Kong is going on the map because of YOU!

If you missed it, H3 is our new mixer event where if you are a hacker, hustler or hipster you can attend – and usually you are without a team – you are a designer looking to join a new startup, a hustler with a great idea or a hacker that is looking to put his/her talent into a new company – each one of these people are essential to the success of a startup and the point of H3 is to form new startups over the course of the evening with only color stickers to let you know what the other people specialize in.
