Meetup @ Startup Insights: Can HK be the Silicon Valley of Asia?

Meetup @ Startup Insights: Can HK be the Silicon Valley of Asia?

The Silicon Valley ecosystem for innovation and entrepreneurship has been tremendously successful, incubating companies like Google and Facebook and creating hundreds of thousands of well-paying jobs. Understanding this, policymakers across the world have sought to replicate key elements of the model. What remains unknown is the degree to which the Silicon Valley is culturally and institutionally specific to the United States in general and California in specific.

Can the Silicon Valley ecosystem model be grafted onto culturally and institutionally different locations across the world? If so, how can this be accomplished?

Professor Joon Nak Choi (JC) will compare Hong Kong’s emerging entrepreneurial ecosystem to the Silicon Valley model, before speculating on the growth trajectory of entrepreneurialism in Hong Kong.

Speaker
Joon Nak Choi (JC)
