“Helping Start-ups Take Off” is the theme of this year’s Entrepreneur Day. There will be more than 25 seminars, forums and workshops during the fair and the HKTDC has invited more than 50 entrepreneurs and renowned speakers to share practical tips and experience on entrepreneurship with the audience. Speakers include:

A new exhibition zone “ICT Start-up Zone”, will showcase start-up success cases related to innovative technology, e-marketing, e-commerce and mobile business apps among other areas.  A new event, “Start-up Runway” will provide entrepreneurs, investors and start-ups with a platform for networking, early stage fundraising and information-sharing from which to explore business collaboration opportunities. Meanwhile, the "Cross Matching Pavilion" will increase the exposure of Hong Kong’s creative and innovative industries, to add value to products and services through brand building.
