Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP) is a statutory body that has one simple goal – to transform Hong Kong into the regional hub for innovation and technology development.
A hub that will diversify and grow the city’s economy, expand employment opportunities across a multitude of industries, raise Hong Kong’s status as a global powerhouse to a new level, foster talent and interest in STEM as well as offer them highly-sought-after tech careers, and most importantly, help create a sustainable world and brighter future for the younger generation.
Since 2001, HKSTP has been carefully building a tech-based ecosystem that connects stakeholders, nurtures talent, facilitates collaboration, and drives innovation to commercialisation.
And through the years, even though this ecosystem has evolved, we’ve held our course and built a strong base of innovators and a full range of tech companies that are among the world’s best.
Currently, more than 600 technology companies and approximately 13,000 technology talents call Hong Kong Science Park home. Our incubation programmes are constantly filled to capacity and numerous startups and their products have reached the world stage with our help, driving tech innovation and the city’s economy.
We now stand at the cusp of a tech revolution, a beginning of a new era of innovation that will only be possible because of our hard work.
Platforms that will harness our dynamism, flexibility, drive, and our ability to gather the best minds in the city include: Healthy Ageing, Robotics and Smart City.
As we begin our new journey, to develop these areas, HKSTP will continue to support and foster the best talent and ideas in the city or otherwise, and create a bright future for us all.
