WHub (whub.io), Hong Kong’s biggest startup community and power connector, is a platform showcasing startups to accelerate their business through meaningful connections to the resources they need to grow.
WHub is based on 3 pillars to help foster and grow the ecosystem:
– Connect Key Players and the Community
– Empower Recruitment and Startup-Corporate Co-Innovation
– Educate through insights and events
Connecting Key Players and the Community: This consists of connecting startups with other startups, accelerators and incubators, universities, government and investors. WHub also creates bridges and leverages multiple partners in other ecosystems to help startups connect and scale beyond their home countries and region.
Empowering Recruitment and Startup-Corporate Co-Innovation: WHub enables startups to build their team through the recruitment of the best talent, be it online on WHub or via our off-line Job Fairs for Tech & Startups (we have organised and sponsored more than 10). This also encompasses connecting corporates to innovative startups and the entire ecosystem, to the benefit of all. Corporates get accompanied in their digital transformation process through hackathons (ex. FinHack: finhack.io), startup competitions, workshops, acceleration programs and/or top executive seminars.
Educating through insights and events: Organising events, such as #SIS (Startup Impact Summit) and supporting global conferences, as well as issuing white papers on the HK Startup Ecosystem and HK FinTech Ecosystem. WHub drives the exchange of know-how, latest news and best practices and technologies.
