Interested firms will need to submit a market-ready solution for at least one of the above themes by 20 October 2023.

The judging panel will comprise representatives from both the public and private sectors, including the banking and technology sectors, professional associations and academia.

Winners of the competition will be offered a fast-track opportunity to the presentation stage of Cyberport Incubation Programme.

Additionally, the winners will also have access to tailor-made consultation services from InvestHK to gain further insight into the Hong Kong market so as to ensure their solutions meet the market needs.
