With TechNode and Cyberport last week hosting “China Bang 2015” in Hong Kong to introduce twelve local startups, we spent three days in Hong Kong, 80% of which was at the CyberPort complex. This creative digital community, with over 300 technology and digital tenants, helped me get a feel for Hong Kong life. Besides the five-star design hotel and entertainment complex, it’s also a huge complex for businesses, home to four grade-A intelligent office buildings. With a 20-feet high ceiling and big glass windows from which you can see some of Hong Kong’s finest houses, a five minute walk takes you to the large hall where we held the ‘Startup Training and Pitching’ event.

Before all this, my first meeting in Hong Kong was with Cyberport CTO Dr. David Chung. Dr. Chung has great experience in IT, with expertise in cloud computing and digital rights management. Now he leads the core public functions of Cyberport, namely IT&T service operations, and the Technology, Collaboration and Entrepreneurship Centers. He walked me through the establishment of Cyberport and how it was taking a leading role in fostering Hong Kong’s ICT startups.
