CVCF x first-ever EdVentures GBA Fellowship to fuel EdTech ecosystem development
With the impacts of COVID-19 bringing forth a new normal for society, the pandemic has put EdTech and e-learning at the epicentre and the trend is here to stay.
To bolster the growth of Hong Kong’s EdTech start-ups and enrich the ecosystem, Cyberport is collaborating with Esperanza to stage the inaugural Global EdTech Summit during the annual flagship event Cyberport Venture Capital Forum (CVCF) this November, sharing insights on EdTech development, investment trends and the future roadmap in propelling digital transformation.
“EdTech is one of the key sectors of development within Cyberport’s smart living application cluster. As the world undergoes accelerated digital transformation, we have seen a continuous surge in demand for innovative education solutions and for talent in local and global markets,” said Dr George Lam, Chairman of Cyberport. “Cyberport will help fuel growth in the EdTech industry and ecosystem, facilitating the development of Hong Kong as a leading regional education innovation hub, hence creating high-value job opportunities for the younger generation.” 
The Global EdTech Summit is part of the EdVentures Global Business Acceleration Fellowship jointly launched by Cyberport and Esperanza, where 12 promising growth-stage start-ups shortlisted from around the world will make final pitches to the judges, and showcase to investors, educators and corporate audiences. The awardees will receive market entry advice and enjoy fast track interview opportunity to the Cyberport Incubation Programme, providing access to Cyberport’s comprehensive entrepreneurship support platform including financial and go-to-market support, mentorship, business matching, industry networks, and funding opportunities.
The Fellowship is now open for application till 23 July 2020, inviting a wide range of EdTech projects from early childhood education to corporate and lifelong learning which are ready to go global.  Visit the Fellowship’s website for details.
