EVENT OBJECTIVE

  • Increasing Canadian companies’ knowledge of the opportunities in Hong Kong
  • Placing Canadian companies on an ideal platform to promote innovative technologies to financial institutions in Hong Kong

WHO CAN APPLY?

All TCS clients that are registered Canadian business entities engaging in FinTech may apply. Applicants will be selected based on their technology’s innovativeness and market potential in the Hong Kong and Macao markets.  Priority areas are innovative solutions in WealthTech, InsurTech, RegTech and Green Fintech, as well as those in the technology areas of Blockchain, AI and Data Analytics.

WHY HONG KONG?

With direct flights from Vancouver and Toronto, Hong Kong and Canada enjoy a long-standing bilateral relationship. The Canadian community in Hong Kong, an estimate of 300,000 Canadians, is the largest outside of Canada. These communities help to solidify commercial ties between the two jurisdictions and help to create business opportunities for Canadian SMEs.
