#Asia #China China Business Cast Podcast: Building An IoT Accelerator In Hong Kong


After flying to Hong Kong for RISE, we spoke with Nick Ramil from Brinc.io, an Internet-of-Things hardware accelerator in Hong Kong. In this episode, Nick explains the ins and outs of Brinc and Hong Kong’s startup ecosystem. (comment: China Business Cast’s original description was this:

“RISE conference ended a few weeks ago. I (Shlomo) flew to Hong Kong to the conference and met Mike as well. It was a good chance to do our very first in person episode recording. This one is with Nick Ramil from Brinc.io accelerator.  We went to their cool space and managed to find the time to talk right before continuing to the next drinking event. Enjoy!”)
