Investors’ Quote


“Alibaba Entrepreneurs Fund was established in 2015. We are focusing on local startups helping young people in Hong Kong to start up and scale up their businesses. We also attract overseas companies to start their businesses in Hong Kong. This is the first year to set up the Startup zone at the International ICT Expo. It is very happy to see a lot of different startups from Hong Kong and overseas gathering here. Some of them are very innovative. I am taking advantage of this platform to talk to them and see what we can help and support them. The startup ecosystem in the Chinese mainland is more mature. I believe Hong Kong lags behind about 5 to 10 years. It’s good to see that Hong Kong government and enterprises in the private sector are now shifting their focus to startups and inputting more resources to support their development. We also need to do more in our education system to encourage young people to try more, change their mindsets and think big for their future. . We are looking for aggressive startups that are willing to think big. Startups here should not focus on Hong Kong market only but look beyond to cover the Chinese mainland or even the global market. For startups, the quality of the founders’ team is the most important. People are always the most critical part in this respect. We see a lot of good people in Hong Kong, whether they are locally grown or coming from other countries. They can see the advantages to start their business here. Hong Kong is a very good startup hub with the availability of financing and the support of professional services.”
Teddy Lui, Operations Director, Alibaba Entrepreneurs Fund


“The startup ecosystem in Hong Kong has been growing vigorously over the years. Apart from local startups, a lot of overseas startups are moving into Hong Kong to explore business opportunities in this part of the world. With HKTDC’s dedicated efforts over the decades, Hong Kong has emerged as a major trading platform for all kinds of businesses. HIKTDC is also making more efforts in matching investors with business startups. International ICT Expo serves as an excellent place to bring startups and investors together to explore growth through a win-win strategy. We have witnessed increased interest in the Expo’s Startup zone. On the first day of exhibition at this year’s Expo, we have brought together over 20 angel investors here to listen to presentations by various startups at the “Tech Startups: Pitch, Mix & Match” session. The session has got some strong responses. The prospect of business startups in Hong Kong is very positive and those specialising in fintech, smart city and health-related solutions are likely to draw keener interest from investors. Hong Kong is the right place for investors looking for technology startups, and more Chinese mainland investors are coming here to find opportunities. The Startup zone is getting more exciting this year with a lot of activities coming into play to gain exposure. This is a very encouraging development.
Dr Samson Tam, Chairman, Hong Kong Business Angel Network, Hong Kong

The "Tech Startups: Pitch, Mix & Match" session on the first day of exhibition was also very successful, enabling startups to present themselves and have fruitful exchanges with investors.
