The Search, Global Tour: Hong Kong

Join Fintech Abu Dhabi in a global search for the most innovative and disruptive startups within financial technology.

Hong Kong is one of the world’s leading International financial centres, and in this edition of The Search we’ll be exploring the many Fintech opportunities that Hong Kong offers as a gateway to the booming Chinese market.

Unicorn founder Simon Loong, Founder & Group CEO at WeLab, will discuss how he built a simple idea, and evolved it into a global success story - WeLab, a round-the-clock digital finance platform, with more than 50m registered users.

King Leung, Head of Fintech, Invest Hong Kong takes a closer look inside the Hong Kong fintech market, exploring how the ‘Fintech 2025’ strategy from the Hong Kong Monetary Authority will drive future fintech development.

We’ll also hear from more incredible startups as they introduce us to their technologies in a bid to join the Fintech100 at November’s Fintech Abu Dhabi.
