Runway to RISE in Hong Kong
Runway to RISE Hong Kong Edition has arrived! Hong Kong is the final of the 8-city tour all around Asia to find the best NEW startups for a unique chance to join RISE Conference 2018. The eight winners will compete against each other at RISE and the winner of that pitching competition will be going to Web Summit in November in Lisbon, Portugal.
In the lead up to RISE, a series of events held across Asia between 17 May and 20 June – in Tokyo, Singapore, Seoul, Taipei, Beijing, Bangkok and Shanghai and culminated in the event at the HSBC Main Building on 20 June in Hong Kong. HSBC is a major sponsor of the RISE Conference for the second year running.
The events are an opportunity for startup community networking, and a pitching competition for a startup to win a free an exhibition stand at RISE.
The winner of the Hong Kong edition is Oxpecker Labs. Oxpecker Labs is a deep tech company that specializes in sensing technology. They have developed this patent-pending, non-invasive sweat sensor for better health management for sports and industrial applications.
