[Event Review] E2 Tech X Social: Innovation for Inclusive Society – Keys and Opportunities

Nov 15, 2016
Jeffrey Chung

On Nov 15 (Tue) 7-9pm, Incu-Lab successfully hosted E2 Tech X Social: Innovation for Inclusive Society – Keys and Opportunities, a fruitful dialogue event about “Tech X Social” Entrepreneurship as a part of 2016 Global Entrepreneurship Week, organized by Cyberport.

Globalization leads to more culturally and economically diversified societies. Our past winning startup teams shared their ideas and views on how to apply technological innovation for building a more caring society amid the increasingly diversified society in Hong Kong, and thus achieve ‘social inclusion’. Keys and opportunities for creating “Tech X Social” innovations, as well as the future prospects for startups to enter the Asian and global market, were thoroughly discussed.

E2 is the 1st crossover platform in Hong Kong where the tech and social sectors meet! It aim to encourage entrepreneurs to create crossover innovative ideas, products and different types of entrepreneurship (Tech x Social) so that ultimately entrepreneurs can achieve both goals of creating innovative tech products and solving social problems with social innovation.

Incu-Lab would like to thank Cyberport for inviting us to host the seminar again as part of GEW. Also, we would like to thank our Strategic Partner HKSTP, Supporting Organisations, Education Partners and Media Partners for their unfailing support and encouragement.
