EPIC 2023: The Gold Rush for Global Startups

Ah, startups. Those little engines of innovation that could (or couldn't, depending on who you ask). But if you're a startup with dreams bigger than a kiddie pool, and you've got your eyes set on the vast, mysterious, and oh-so-lucrative lands of Asia, then boy, do I have news for you.

The EPIC Lowdown

EPIC 2023 isn't just another startup competition. It's like the Olympics, but for startups. Organized by the bigwigs at Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP), it's the golden ticket for startups worldwide to strut their stuff and make their mark in Asia.

Why Should You Care?

Well, aside from the obvious bragging rights, there's a cool US$60,000 for the champion. And if you're into fintech or proptech, there's a neat US$20,000 waiting for you. Not to mention, the top 10 finalists each get a slice of the US$100,000 pie. But wait, there's more! The top 50 semifinalists get a shot at a whopping investment of up to US$5 million. That's a lot of zeroes.

The Focus: Fintech and Proptech

In the red corner, we have fintech - everything from banking tech, regtech, digital assets, to risk management. And in the blue corner, proptech is all about sustainability, smart environments, and construction. Ding ding ding!

Is It Worth It?

Absolutely. Aside from the cash prizes, there's the invaluable exposure to over 1000 regional investors and 300+ corporate partners. Plus, the chance to expand into China and the Asia Pacific. And let's not forget the new market entry support, business matching services, and a tap into the talent pool of Hong Kong's top universities.

The Grand Finale

Mark your calendars for 28 Apr 2023. That's when the EPIC 2023 grand finale is going down at the sky100 Hong Kong Observation Deck. It's going to be, well, epic.

Who's Behind It?

The brains behind this operation is none other than the Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP). They're no strangers to innovation and have been the driving force behind many a startup success story.
