Main Topic:
Raising US$ 1 million out of Hong Kong - The Frenzoo Story
Presented by Simon Newstead, CEO, Frenzoo

Hong Kong is not typically known as a base for global consumer internet companies.   Despite recent promising moves, there hasn't been a well developed angel and VC investment ecosystem to help fund new ventures in this space.

Despite that, Frenzoo, a pioneer in 3d mobile games for women, managed to successfully raise US$ 1M funding from Hong Kong and Asian investors to fund its global launch and business expansion.  In the first month since launch, Frenzoo's new products have attracted over 1 million global users.

In this session Simon will talk about the challenges in raising funds in Hong Kong, the journey in establishing a consumer internet company,  and share thoughts on future opportunities and trends.

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.
