- 21 Jan 2018 (Sun)
HKU SPACE Executive Academy (SEA) partnered with Cyberport to co-host the first open-recruited “Belt and Road Initiative: Business Mission and Study Tour in Israel” at the end of January. Total 16 delegates from startup, industrial, legal, IT, hospitality and education industries attended this programme.
Delegates enjoyed a rich itinerary covering an Innovative Entrepreneurship programme at the Hewbrew University of Jerusalem, and a cultural tour to better understand the secrets of “The Startup Nation”, the story of Israel’s economic miracle. Delegates were also arranged to meet Israel’s government officials and members of Israel-Asia Chamber of Commerce for business matching and pitching opportunities.
Corporate visits are one of the programme cores. Delegates also paid visits to 10 diversified scale of local technology companies and startup organisations such as software developer Surecomp, Israeli start-up Proov, a developer of vision-based advanced driver assistance systems Mobileeye and a startup hub Atobe.
“It was a valuable and meaningful programme that enabled us the knowledge how Israel’s Startup Nation was built and extended business network from Hong Kong and Israel for further business opportunities,” said two of the delegates Devin Sio of DES Chambers and Winnie Wai of Wai & Co, Solicitors.
“The programme focused on startup knowledge and business application. It enlightened us to improve our company strategy and product development. Adopting the strengths of Hong Kong and Israel, we will bring our company to the next level, shared by one of the delegates Issac Neng, Founder of 2Easy Company, a Cyberport Incubatee.
SEA would like to highly recognize Consulate of Israel in Hong Kong & Macau, Cyberport and Wing On Travel for their support.
