ENTREPRENEURS
Since 2009, the number of startups in Hong Kong has grown by almost 300%. Yet, the current aspiring entrepreneurs are still facing many challenges, such as pressure from peers and family preventing them from making the entrepreneurial leap.
In late 2013, Google launched the Empowering Young Entrepreneurs Program (“EYE Program”), aiming to boost the city’s level of entrepreneurship, and empower young entrepreneurs to capture the opportunities in the digital era.
The 2016 program is designed to empower both entrepreneurs and corporates in Hong Kong by making collaborative innovation possible.
