It is absolutely critical to have leading manufacturers, financial services institutes & startups to collaborate together to co-create innovative solutions to solve customers’ pain points & come up with new business models to seize the market opportunities in the Digital Economy. Here is a great example in Hong Kong. FHKI Federation of Hong Kong Industries Startup Council partnered with HSBC has organized a STARS programme to select the best of the best startups to add values to the Toys & Electronics manufacturing industries. https://lnkd.in/fV79SXT Today, we have done the vetting exercise. It was my honour being the Chairman of today’s judging panel & Principal Mentor of the programme. Experienced manufacturers, serial entrepreneurs, financial services leaders & investors were in our panel today. 10+ teams were selected & will proceed to next round for business & investors matching.
