About the Seminar :

Start-up entrepreneurs are people with visions in specialist areas they are focusing on and niche services they are offering. However, they are less experienced in soliciting funding support from investors and communicating their messages across. Unicorn Financial Company Limited is delighted to host a seminar for SME and startup entrepreneurs on fundraising strategies suitable for Hong Kong startups. At the seminar, participants will hear from financial market participants with insights and experiences in fund-raising channels and strategies for startups and SMEs.

We believe we can offer to participants the following key takeaways:
- An introduction to and updates of the business and regulatory environment in Hong Kong and the
Greater Bay Area, what works the best and what are more feasible than others;
- Preferences of the authorities and investors, policies and investor appetites startup entrepreneurs
can capitalize on to drive their businesses to grow faster;
- Opportunities to establish connections with key participants with financiers, investors and other
business owners for further cooperation and collaborations in future;
- Effective ways in communicating with private equity investors and useful steps in building
company profiles that help position their ventures more accurately.

Topics to be covered at the seminar:
1. An overview of the business environment for start-ups in different industries in Hong Kong
2. Resources available for start-ups: government funding/subsidies; private-sector funding
3. Insights in applying for and securing government funding
4. Applying for government subsidies for start-ups in the Greater Bay Area (the “GBA”)
