Cyberport Function Room


Drive the new wave of venture capital investment

Cyberport Venture Capital Forum (CVCF) is Cyberport’s annual signature event to discuss global successes of smart investments and hot trends of venture capital markets in the digital technology space. The event provides a unique platform to connect investor icons, industry professionals and start-up founders to share insights on technology trends with the focus on Fintech, AI/Big Data, Blockchain, as well as Smart City/Living, and foster investment matching opportunities focusing on early stage tech investments.

As a key advocate of the start-up ecosystem in Hong Kong, Cyberport hosts the CVCF to bring leading investors and tech start-ups under one roof to foster more investment matching and business collaboration opportunities.

The Hon. Nicholas W Yang, JP, Secretary for Innovation and Technology of the Hong Kong SAR Government, will be joined Cyberport’s Chairman, Dr Lee George Lam to officiate the opening ceremony.

This year, Cyberport will collaborate with TechNode for the first time to organise the thematic session CVCF x TechCrunch, comprising of a keynote presentation and panel discussion.  With China being a global technology and venture capital frontrunner, this session will focus on the latest international investment situation and Chinese Mainland’s tech investor appetite. It will also explore tech development prospects along the Greater Bay Area, as well as analyse ways in which businesses can gain insights and leverage on the latest industry and investment trends in the region to improve their fundraising capabilities. TechNode will also lead representatives from some of Chinese Mainland’s leading investors to attend CVCF’s Investor Matching to connect and meet with Hong Kong’s digital tech companies to explore investment opportunities.
