The StartmeupHK Festival 2022 will be held from September 5 to 10 to explore the latest topics from the metaverse and NFTs (non-fungible tokens) to sustainability and the Greater Bay Area, Invest Hong Kong announced today.

With the theme "A Future Unlimited", the weeklong festival will comprise keynotes from global business leaders, thought-provoking panel discussions with entrepreneurs, startup pitches, investor matching, competitions, exhibitions and job fairs.

Attendees will have a chance to exchange ideas, make new connections and define a blueprint for the future of startups.

“Hong Kong continues to foster a thriving startup ecosystem which has remained strong despite unprecedented times,” Associate Director-General of Investment Promotion Charles Ng said.

“The challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic helped to fast-track the city's development into an international centre for innovation and technology.

“We look forward to welcoming new talent and creative minds into our resilient, ever-expanding ecosystem with the StartmeupHK Festival 2022, encouraging all attendees and stakeholders to make use of Hong Kong's fantastic links to the GBA and beyond, whilst influencing all kinds of connections.”
