VIA only serves as a platform to connect entrepreneurs with investors. If one of our council members is interested in your business, he/she will discuss investment opportunities with you separately.
TMT, IT, Healthcare, Cleantech, Financial Technology and more. If you are so amazing that you are creating a completely new and uncharted territory then we would love to hear from you too!
When you submit your application it is good to attach a simple business plan, in which you may wish to address the following points: market outlook, your product, competitors, your team, your vision, etc.
If you make it to the presentation stage, a PPT presentation is in general recommended.
There is nothing to stop you from applying, but according to our experience no single person, no matter how smart or competent, can manage all the tasks in a business, so find yourself an awesome team!
We welcome entrepreneurs of all nationalities. The only criterion is that you have chosen Hong Kong to base your business.
We welcome entrepreneurs of all age – it’s never too early or too late to pursue your dream!
We have funded companies from early stage (prototype) to late stage (profitable) so we are relatively stage agnostic. We understand that your initial product will have flaws but we are more interested to hear about your plans with a very clear vision about where the company is heading to improve on such imperfection.
