Frequently Asked Questions

Q1. Is it necessary to work on-site as an HKSTP Incubatee?

We know. We are a bit needy in our relationship.

This is an on-site programme. As we love building relationships with our incubatees, meaning we have to meet each other more often.

Chances are you don’t want to leave HKSTP once you understand the power of connections in your startup journey.

P.S. We provide incubatees with a rental subsidy for our working premises.

Q2. Any specific deadline for the Incubation application?

The best time to apply was yesterday, and you have just missed it.

But, whenever you are ready, we are too. The application can be done 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days… can someone just stop us?

Q3. I only have one person in my team. Can you help me find other team members?

We told you! Building your connections on-site is your superpower.

Finding the right team for your startup can be done through your active participation in any networking events in our ecosystem, or one of our many talent nurturing programmes. 

(check them out here).

Q4. How long is the whole application process?

30 days approximately, only if you have submitted all the requested information.

From our experience, many applicants are so excited that they forget everything and the requested information quickly. 

Our advice: keep calm and get your act together. 

Q5. Can I apply again if my application is rejected?

We love people who see failure as a lesson learned.

You can re-apply three months after getting your admission panel meeting (APM) results.

Q6. I am an overseas company. How should I go about applying for the HKSTP Incubation Programme?

Bonjour! Ni-hao! Hola! HKSTP Incubation Programme welcomes applications from around the world.

But first thing first, you will need to get a Hong Kong business registration.

The quickest way to get this done is to contact InvestHK, HKSAR Government’s foreign direct investment office. Contact Stanley at or complete the form here.
