The Search, Global Tour: Hong Kong

14 July 2021, 3:00 PM HKT / 11:00 AM GST

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.

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

Between June and November, Fintech Abu Dhabi highlights more than 35 countries with 23 planned tour stops. The Search comes to an end at the final destination, MENA’s leading fintech festival, Fintech Abu Dhabi happening 22 - 24 November 2021. Each virtual tour stop features interviews and panel debates as fintech leaders from the host country share their thoughts on how fintech innovations have shaped their region.
