Easy Pitching to Angel Investors to Raise Growth Capital
A new organized platform - with FREE training exclusively for TEN members - to pitch to a major Hong Kong organization of angel investors

Presented by Mr. Fred W.S. Yung, Senior Manager, Business Development and Technology Support, Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corp., and a Representative of The Hong Kong Business Angel Network (HKBAN)

TEN is proud to announce the official launch of its partnership with Hong Kong Business Angel Network (HKBAN) which now will offer an easy and affordable solution to one of the most frequently asked questions by start-up entrepreneurs or any successful young business with further growth ambitions: How do I raise angel capital?

Angel funding to expand one’s business between the initial seed funding and the venture capital funding stage has always been a problem for start-ups in Hong Kong. HKBAN was recently organized with a group of angel investors to provide a platform for start-ups to meet with business angels regularly. Mr. Frederick Yung, a member of the Secretariat of HKBAN, will speak to Members of TEN on how they can join the platform via TEN to pitch to these angel investors. (Recent membership in HKBAN was close to 100 investors.) He will also talk about the various financial assistance programs in Hong Kong to help enterprises in their start-up and development stages.

Immediately following Mr. Frederick Yung’s presentation, Mr. Steven C. Book, Honorary Chairman of TEN, will present a brief graphic overview of the process and procedures from interest expressed by a TEN member to an opportunity to make an actual face-to-face presentation to a group of HKBAN investors.

After the presentation, the session will continue in an interactive Q & A format where members and guests are encouraged to discuss relevant issues with our guest speaker.
