Four out of the 17 are software development startups, but their combined funding totals just a little more than the sole data analytics startup.
Hong Kong has the strategic geographical position of being at the doorway to mainland China’s cast market and manufacturing base, and benefitting from straightforward regulations and a British-influenced legal system. Its startup ecosystem has been ranked 5th fastest growing startup market and 25th most important startup hub in the world, making it more attractive to investors, foreign or otherwise.
