As the Make a Difference (MaD) forum came to an end last weekend in Hong Kong, three winners have been selected as part of the MaD Venture Fellows Programme.
Through this initiative, Fellows will receive a full year of mentorship and opportunities to present their businesses in Hong Kong. They were selected from 16 innovators invited to pitch their ideas to a group of 300 people in the investment, finance, and business communities in Hong Kong.
“Hong Kong faces the challenge of developing a more diversified economy, a fairer society and a greener environment,” said Rachel Chan, convenor of the MaD Venture Fellows Programme, “We need to nurture and attract, as a matter of urgency, a new generation of high impact, innovative and entrepreneurial talent, to inject new momentum to our economy and society.”
