Start-ups are often considered as a growth propeller in the new economy. They create jobs, bring innovative ideas to disrupt traditional industries, and provide a fresh perspective to the community. Hong Kong, being one of the easiest places to start a business, has developed a vibrant and rapidly growing startup ecosystem, which attracts both local and overseas entrepreneurs to start their business here.
