Mission to Hong Kong

Mission to Hong Kong

Mission to Hong Kong, what a week! With the StartmeupHK festival finished for another year and the tech founders and mission delegates now safely back in the UK (for now!), we asked Adam Kennedy, our Sales Director in Hong Kong to share his thoughts from the week:

‘I’d like to start by thanking Tech West England Advocates, and in particular Richard Lowe for putting together an amazing week of events. The week included a reception at the British Consulate, tours of Cyberport and the Hong Kong Science and Technology Park, a VC reverse pitch event and a Tech Founders showcase event that Sanderson iKas were happy to sponsor, as well as the opportunity to attend events as part of the wider StartmeupHK festival.

My main takeaways from the week are:

Hong Kong has an amazing, vibrant tech scene, the people I have had the pleasure of meeting this week have ranged from the latest fintech startups to Google. There was such as buzz throughout Hong Kong during StartmeupHK and it has been inspiring to see the size, quality, diversity, and ambition of our tech community.

There is an incredible infrastructure in place to support tech companies scaling in Hong Kong, including InvestHK, Cyberport and the Hong Kong Science & Technology Park.

People are as important as ever. It was lovely to tell my story, share market insights and talk about Sanderson iKas’ experience of recruiting in Hong Kong during one of the panel discussions.

The feedback I received both at the events and on LinkedIn afterwards has confirmed our belief that the quality of people has such an impact on business success, we look forward to helping the tech community grow into the new year.’


Thank you to Tech West England Advocates for organising this amazing event, a fantastic way for UK businesses to explore Hong Kong. If you would like to find out more about Sanderson iKas please follow the links below or get in touch with Adam.
