TEN’s July 11 event is a special dual presentation on issues relating to new resources for Startup entrepreneurs in Hong Kong.

The evening’s first presentation will be a brief speech by Mr. Tony Chan, on a new free service to TEN members:  "New Online Platform - "TEN Projects" - for Startups".  The new web portal, named TEN Projects is an online listing service to promote TEN members’ projects and startup businesses to the general public.  Akin to a cross between CrunchBase and LinkedIn for projects, the public information can include videos, PowerPoint presentations, and embedded documents.  Company profiles can be promoted via social media channels and private data can be made accessible on an approved basis.  TEN Projects can therefore be a useful site for publicizing your startup business or other project to investors for funding and/or potential customers for business development.

Immediately following Mr. Chan’s presentation will be a talk by Mr. Charles Ng:  "Resources from StartMeUpHK – the new initiative from InvestHK"   Officially launched in June 2013, StartMeUpHK is a new initiative from InvestHK that promotes Hong Kong as the best place to start a business.  StartMeUpHK goes several steps further than InvestHK’s previous well-known global programs by providing details on numerous local resources such as incubation programs, university courses and seminars, government funding for SME’s and technology startups, angels and venture capitalists, entrepreneurial networking organizations, and many others.  The new StartMeUpHK website also provides details on upcoming events and business success stories.

A combined Q&A session will follow immediately after the second speaker’s presentation.
