We at HKIS are proud to be and work in Hong Kong, a global city nestled between two huge markets: GBA and Southeast Asia (ASEAN). Hong Kong has top universities and plenty of capital from the financial market, and its start-up scene is growing rapidly. We believe the future is bright for Hong Kong’s I&T ecosystem, and from Hong Kong we can look outward to the GBA and the international stage and change the world.
With that said, we aspire to help young, ambitious talents passionate about driving change to tap into the opportunities offered by our I&T scene. We aim to inspire young minds to find a career path in Hong Kong and the GBA’s I&T ecosystem and connect them to the resources and networks needed for their I&T career journey.
We believe a strong community of diverse and dedicated talents can boost confidence and enable like-minded people to work together and inspire each other about the many I&T opportunities we have here in our region. Therefore, we want to unite talents of all stripes who are passionate about working in our I&T landscape.
Together, we can make Hong Kong a greater hub for I&T and I&T the career of tomorrow and drive change in the world.
