Hong Kong Cyberport Management Company Limited
Annual Report 2014/15
Cyberport Partners: Leaping on global ambition
From our journey in the past years working with entrepreneurs,
we understand that once a company has secured its position in
the local market, many will want to venture into other overseas
markets. Hence, a global network like the one Cyberport has
built throughout the years across industries and backgrounds
can help them enormously. To facilitate the growth of these
start-ups further, we also fund their participation in renowned
accelerator programmes worldwide through our Cyberport
Accelerator Support Programme.
We also place equal emphasis on keeping abreast of the
industry’s trending topics and bringing them to Hong Kong. In
the last year, we have strengthened our efforts to support
innovative entrepreneurs, particularly in areas such as
wearable technology, financial technology and open data. To
this end, we have hosted one hundred tech events in the past
year with a dual purpose in mind. One is to enrich tech
knowledge amongst the industry and the other is to provide
quality events for our community at which they can network
and foster tighter partnerships.
With such a comprehensive one-stop platform that supports
every milestone of digital tech talent and entrepreneurs at
every step of their journey, Cyberport has grown into a lively
community that nurtures tech innovation and creativity. The
vibrancy, drive and energy are now visible throughout the
Cyberport campus. This matches our roles of developing more
tech-savvy youth and professionals, nurturing entrepreneurial
minds and their ideas, accelerating the growth of businesses
driven by technology and developing greater global networks.
All these efforts are part of a multi-year push to fulfill our vision.
We have committed HK$300 million since 2010 to further our
two strategic plans and we have started to bear fruits from the
energy, passion, time and effort we have invested through the
years. Although the frontiers Cyberport explored in the past
have evolved over time, the commitment in growing an open
and dynamic technology-based community that empowers the
growth of ideas, the development of partnerships and the spirit
of innovation is as solid as it can be.
