Understanding the Vibrant Tech Start-up Scene in Hong Kong​




As start-up hubs in Asia go, Hong Kong has a powerful appeal rivalled by few. Despite economic challenges brought by the pandemic, the city’s start-up ecosystem has demonstrated remarkable resilience, and even saw the emergence of numerous up-and-coming crypto and blockchain companies.
