Other than the government driven assistances, the Business Angel Programme is the first one in town that encourages an atmosphere for entrepreneurs and angel investors to get together and exchange ideas in addition to provide funding support. It is a fruitful campaign to cultivate local start-ups under such difficult business environments nowadays especially with an increasing rental pressure in Hong Kong.
How it Works
A professional committee assesses all submissions and provides mentoring, ensuring only the business plans with the highest potential are presented at the Pitch Event.
Hundreds of Entrepreneurs
We have access to hundreds of great business ideas and entrepreneurs, waiting for the right partnerships to be formed.
The Business Angel Pitch Event allows you to not only hear these amazing new ideas, but also meet and find out more about how to get involved.
Angels should either be high net worth individuals looking to invest, venture capitalists or representatives of investors.
It’s Easy to Get Involved
Sign up to see the business plans that have been submitted by our entrepreneurs from previous rounds. Registration is quick and easy, including an option to express your interest sectors. You will be notified when there is a new submission under your selected interests.
About the Pitch Event
Attend the Pitch Event to see the top 5 candidates present their exciting new business ideas. If you are a member of the British Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong, you may sign up for free. If not, a fee to attend the event will be levied.
I have invested directly in a couple of the aspiring startups that have come through the Program, and the experience gained as an active Angel has been eminently instructive, informing me in an intimate manner on the immense potential, harsh financial realities and operational challenges of entrepreneurship in this part of the world.
