Quotes from Startup Exhibitors and Experts

 

img “Startups have new ideas, but they may not understand the industry’s needs and do not have engineering background. Arrow’s experts can provide consultancy and design services, helping startups to realise their creative ideas. Our lab service is free of charge. After startups turn their creative ideas into actual products, they can make use of our distribution service to market their products. After speaking at the startup forum, I have visited some of the startups at the Startup Zone and I find that they have creative ideas and the passion for innovations. The Startup Zone provides a great platform for startups from different countries and regions to exchange their ideas.”
Jacky Wan, Vice President, Engineering – Asia Pacific, Arrow Asia Pac Ltd, Hong Kong

 

“Gelab helps startups and makers to turn their creative ideas into real products and market their products. This is the first time that we have led 12 startups to showcase 12 innovative products at the Startup Zone in Autumn Electronics Fair. Fine examples include a smart walking stick with GPS, a torch and shock-resistant tip, and SeaTalkie which is a walkie-talkie designed for water sports. The HKTDC has done a good job in promoting the Startup Zone through different media platforms and many buyers are attracted to the Startup Zone to look for new ideas. The Startup Zone provides an ideal platform for startups to meet with buyers directly and know more about their requirements and feedback. We are happy to see that many buyers from Southeast Asia and the Middle East have made enquiries and some of them consider buying smaller quantities like 200 pieces to test their markets. We’ll host a forum at the fairground and invite supply chain professionals to share their tips with startups and makers.”

img “Next Chapter is a crowdfunding platform for female entrepreneurs and women-owned businesses. We want to increase women’s access to capital and empower female entrepreneurs to launch successful businesses and products. Since the launch of our crowdfunding platform in March 2016, we have raised HK$900,000 for 18 projects. I am happy to be one of the speakers for the Startup Mentoring Class. The audience is very engaged and has raised very good questions. I am also impressed by the Startup Zone which facilitates the needs of buyers and investors.”
Nicole Denholder, Founder, Next Chapter, Hong Kong

 

“Taiwan Startup Stadium (TSS) was set up two years ago to help Taiwan startups to sell globally. With the invitation from the HKTDC, TSS has led five member companies to showcase innovative products at the Startup Zone in the Hong Kong Electronics Fair (Autumn Edition) for the first time. Our delegates are showcasing an IOT-enabled occupational environmental senor, a smart and portable muscle stimulator, a traditional analogue watch with smart functions, a multifunctional 3D printer, and a skincare device that measures your hydration, skin pigmentation and skin health. We are glad to have joined the Autumn Electronics Fair which is one of the largest electronics fairs in the world. It is the right place where Taiwan startups can meet a lot of buyers from around the world, do real business and find business partners.”
