The Captain's Table

Captains tableTo further promote Hong Kong as an international maritime centre and startup hub, Invest Hong Kong are sponsoring a global startup competition, “The Captain’s Table”, launched by the Young Professionals in Shipping Network (YPSNHK).

YPSN is currently inviting applicants or startups to submit innovative ideas in five main areas: Platform and Software as a service, Deeptech, Fintech & Insuretech, Education and Environment and Sustainability. The entries will be shortlisted with the five best ideas being presented at a live final where they will compete to win a seat at The Captain’s Table. The live final will be held in Hong Kong at the Asia Society during Hong Kong Maritime Week on Tuesday 19 November 2019.

The purpose of this competition is to provide an alternative platform for young innovators to connect with the industry and showcase their ideas and, also a chance, for investors to discover the 'next big idea(s)'. Startups will have the chance to pitch their idea on an international stage, with direct access to investors, mentors, and industry leaders, as well as cash prizes of USD25,000. Entries close 31 July 2019.

We'd be grateful if you could disseminate this competition to your network especially those businesses / startups you know of involved in the five main areas.
