Hong Kong Startup Community, Mentorship and Events

As Hong Kong grows out of Silicon Valley’s shadow, Founders Network is connecting its local Founders with a global network. Based in San Francisco, Founders Network takes advantage of its local resources while opening them up to its Founder members. Founders Network is a mentorship program that is building peer-to-peer relationships with Founders across the globe.

Learn, Network, and Engage with entrepreneurs in Hong Kong

After a slow start, Hong Kong’s startup scene is making some noise. The city’s funding activity grew 11 times from 2012 to 2016 according to the Startup Genome Report (2018). With a strong world banking presence, it’s no surprise that the city hosts over 200 Fintech companies. With the governments support, top available talent, and top financial institutions, it’s a great time to be a Founder in Hong Kong.

Founders Network is based in San Francisco, just 45 minutes north of the valley and was built with the Silicon Valley startup founder in mind. At Founders Network, we know that a robust network of other founders is an essential part of any successful tech founder’s startup playbook. Our mentorship program is designed to support our members throughout their startup journey and accelerate their success.
