Our Programmes and Initiatives

Global Acceleration Academy – Travel and Hospitality

Global Acceleration Academy (GAA) is a free-of-charge open innovation platform that takes corporate innovation with deep-tech solutions from global tech ventures to the world. In 2019 we partnered with top brands such as Cathay Pacific, HK Disneyland, Hong Kong Airport Authority and Regal Hotels to create accelerators that welcomed tech solutions from over 15 countries around the world.

These tech ventures embraced the challenges that were presented by our corporate partners and worked intensely with them to develop tangible proof-of-concepts (POC). From an application base of over 100, selected tech ventures advanced beyond the Demo Days to develop business traction with the corporates.

GAA continues to work with leading corporate brands to develop game-changing acceleration cohorts. Check out the current cohorts to participate or contact our team to find out how to engage your corporation to seek and develop innovations from around the world.
