RISE brings spotlight speakers from the world’s largest and most successful companies together with the world’s most exciting startups in Hong Kong. It is produced by the team behind Web Summit. They’ve grown our Dublin conference from 400 to 42,000 attendees in six years. With 15,000 attendees heading to RISE this year, there should be some kind of run up to the event right? Enter Runway to Rise, which is a pitching competition held before the RISE conference to lead up to the main event. This competition battled out between local startups who each get their time on-stage to duke it out with one another. The prize are the 2 spots on the BREAKTHROUGH stage at RISE with 1 winner going to Web Summit! But it’s not all competition, there’s panel discussions, drinking and lots of networking as well.
If you’re a startup looking to make it big or a layman interested in startups pitch, please come along! If you haven’t been able to secure a ticket, you can watch the event on Facebook Live and vote for your favourite startup from there.
