Invest Hong Kong (InvestHK) announced details of its UK Fintech Awards 2018, organised in conjunction with the UK’s Department for International Trade, to tap the rich seam of Fintech talent in the UK and showcase the exciting opportunities Hong Kong presents as a conduit to Asia. I am delighted that FINTECH Circle is InvestHK’s strategic partner in the UK and will participate in the Selection process.
The Awards are open for submissions until February 23 2018. The best entries will be shortlisted to participate in a pitching competition judged by sector experts from both the UK and Hong Kong. The two winners of the Awards will be announced at a ceremony that will take place on March 20 during the Innovate Finance Global Summit 2018 (IFGS) in London.
In this instance, the Fintech Bridge aims to encourage Fintech firms to use the facilities and explore new business opportunities in Hong Kong. The two winners will be given complimentary flight tickets in business class to Hong Kong sponsored by Cathay Pacific, plus accommodation for five days. In Hong Kong, they will receive introductions, networking opportunities and sector expert counsel on how to expand and scale their business in and through Hong Kong to Asia and beyond.
