[eNews] In Recognition of Hong Kong's Fastest Growing Tech Firms

The Hong Kong Technology Fast and Rising Star Program organized by Deloitte has announced a list of winners and released the results of a survey on innovation and technology.

At a ceremony held on November 8, Klook was named the 2019 Deloitte Technology Leadership winning company, and the top three Technology Fast winners were HKTaxiePropulsion and IOE. As the Program’s knowledge partner, the survey report - Empowering Hong Kong's Economy Through Innovation was presented by our Professor of Entrepreneurship, Sam GARG, on the same occasion. The survey took a snapshot of the innovation and technology landscape in Greater China and gathered respondents' views on prospects for the Greater Bay Area. The survey covered entrepreneurs from companies and student entrepreneurs at HKUST.

According to the survey, entrepreneurs (77 percent) and students entrepreneurs (58 percent) view Hong Kong's well established regulatory environment and legal framework as its main advantage for startups. Even though the respondents were very positive about the potential for Hong Kong to thrive within the Greater Bay Area ecosystem, Hong Kong is at risk of falling behind other GBA and Chinese Mainland cities, in some areas, including advanced products and services, and innovative spirit.
