Startup Weekend Hong Kong is a 54-hour event that brings together University students, entrepreneurs, and experts from all domains to do amazing things. Participants are welcome to pitch their start up ideas and receive feedback from their peers. Teams form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and embark on a three-day frenzy of business model creation, designing, and market validation. The weekend ends with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders for another opportunity for critical feedback.
WHY SILVER SOCIETY?Growing old is a fact of life. With the advent of high-quality healthcare and advanced medicine, people are living longer than ever. As the inverted population pyramid fast approaching, especially in developed economies, an aging society represents a unique set of challenges we all have to face, but it also means there are enormous opportunities in this "Silver Economy."
Startup Weekend Hong Kong Silver Society (Silver Economy & Aging Society) would like to focus on tackling the pressing needs of an aging society through new product and service innovation. It includes all the economic activities relevant to the needs of older adults, and the impact on many sectors. For example, health and nutrition, leisure and wellbeing, transport and housing, finance, public policy, education and employment.
