Inaugural fintech meetup to focus on opportunities in Hong Kong
Hong Kong is catching the fintech bug. And now Cyberport and NexChange are launching a monthly meetup to put together startups in the region to discuss critical issues: fund raising, growth, talent search, and more.
The inaugural Fintech O-2-O Meetup will take place on Tuesday, September 22 and is expected to attract about 200 delegates from startups in the area as well as investors and customers. Increasingly, founders are discovering that online -to-offline is a key element in developing their ideas and relationships with potential clients.
Fintech is attracting big money. More than $12 billion was invested last year, according to consultancy firm KPMG. The U.S. accounted for almost 80% of the total, followed by Europe with a 12% share and Asia a lagging third place with 6%.
The event at Cyberport should help both entrepreneurs and investors in Hong Kong learn about the tremendous opportunities in this sector.
Leading practitioners will share their experiences across a range of FinTech segments such as payments, peer-to-peer lending and portfolio management.
Chris Dark, president international of C2FO will deliver the keynote speech. There will then be a panel discussion that includes Mukesh Bubna, founder & CEO of Monexo Innovations, James McKeogh, partner at KPMG, Van Ta, founder of Suisse Tech Partners (STP) and Dominic Wong, head of large merchant acquisitions at PayPal.
NexChange and Cyberport look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday! To register, click here.
