FEELIN’ HOT! HOT! HOT!
There's something undeniably sexy about the world of "startups". Of course, behind all the sweet-talk of crowdfunding, venture capital rounds and 19 year-old millionaires who-invented-an-app-in-their-garage-and-now-drive-a-Lamborghini, the success rate for fledgling tech companies, as we're constantly reminded, is undeniably small.
Nevertheless, it is incredibly exciting news that VenueHub has been named as one of HK's 20 "Hottest" startups for 2014 by Hong Kong Business magazine, one of the leading business mags in the HK. There's some really interesting and varied entries on the list, including perhaps most striking of all a company called "Skylab Mobilesystems" (Terminator 2 anyone?!) which produces unmanned aerial drones!
There's little doubt that a burgeoning startup ecosystem is gathering momentum here in HK, a community which has come on in leaps and bounds since around 2009, and we're glad to be a part of it. Here's to the continued success of all of those who made the list.
