Companies from nine key fintech verticals are invited to submit applications by 31 August, for a chance to showcase their solutions to corporates and investors at Hong Kong Fintech Week.
InvestHK has unveiled the Global Fast Track Programme, a business-driven programme within Hong Kong Fintech Week to help local and global fintech enterprises leverage fintech opportunities to scale business and accelerate innovation.
The Fast Track programme plugs fintech enterprises into Hong Kong’s ecosystem of regulators, business leaders, corporates and investors to drive their ventures across Hong Kong and elsewhere in the Greater Bay Area and Asia.
Companies are invited from nine key fintech verticals – trade finance, capital markets, retail banking, commercial banking, insurance, regtech, wealthtech, payments and enterprise resource planning – to submit applications until 31 August.
About 10 companies per vertical will be selected to showcase their solutions for an opportunity to join a tailored B2B matchmaking programme with corporates and investors to explore further deals and investment partnerships.
Selected fintech ventures will pitch their innovative solutions to the HKMA (Hong Kong Monetary Authority) and senior executives of corporates including HKEX (Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing), AMTD Group, Allianz Global Investors, Mizuho Bank and others.
Over 10 selected finalists will then pitch virtually for extra prizes at Hong Kong Fintech Week, to be held from 2-6 November.
Investors are lined up with up to USD 1 million of investment commitment on offer per project, subject to further due diligence, business discussions and approval through the protocol as required by respective investors.
The programme is curated by Finnovasia, the event organiser of Hong Kong Fintech Week.
More information on the programme is available here.
The programme also features the Mainland China Track stream to help Chinese fintech enterprises scale their business overseas via Hong Kong.
