CCMF 2010 awards five Hong Kong's hottest Web 3.0 start-ups with funding

Five promising Hong Kong start-up companies got a special break when they were granted HK$100,000 each as the winners of the Cyberport Creative Micro Fund (CCMF) earlier this month.  Established to promote digital entrepreneurial talent in Hong Kong by Cyberport, this year's fund focused on start-ups that showed potential for capturing the opportunities of the next-generation Internet, or Web 3.0.

This is the second pilot scheme that Cyberport rolled out with a total of HK$500,000 seed money awarded to high-potential start-up projects or business concepts in the digital creative area, as part of Cyberport's mission to cultivate digital talent in Hong Kong and develop the city's credentials as a leading information and communications technology (ICT) hub in the region.

"It is highly encouraging to see the tremendous talents we have in Hong Kong, as represented by the five recipients of this year's seed fund," said Herman Lam, CEO of Cyberport.  "Cyberport is fully committed to facilitating the realisation of Hong Kong's potential as a digital powerhouse in Asia by investing in start-ups, SMEs and sparking creativity and innovation in the ICT industry.  The era of Web 3.0 will certainly bring in more opportunities to the ICT industry, not only for better experience enhancement, but also for our ICT talents who are committed to promoting innovation and technology.  We congratulate this year's winners and look forward to seeing their ideas come alive on the market in Hong Kong and beyond."

The CCMF 2010 winners are as follows:
