Startup Explorer and Maker House

get ready for Hong Kong unicorns

A

new video platform from the HKFYG Jockey Club Social Innovation Centre promotes startups. Maker House is another of their specials, on now at Cityplaza.

Startup Explorer gives exposure to young entrepreneurs seeking investors, venture capital and partners in the government and business sectors. First up on the platform is Brian Hui, co-founder of the Pokeguide app. This Hong Kong travel guide includes directions for the best place to board the MTR so that you can minimize delays. It also recommends hot spots near your destination for eating, shopping and relaxing. Now working on a new tool to help disabled passengers cope better with the MTR and looking to grow the business to multiple cities in the near future. CEO of Unicornis, Estee Sham presents her hi-tech project on Startup Explorer by talking about customization. Streamlining container cargo-moving logistics is a key project, well-suited to Hong Kong’s major role as a shipping hub. It uses artificial intelligence with smart cameras for automated alignment of stacked boxes. In future, she is looking to install smart security cameras in schools to support student monitoring.

Maker House is running through the summer and into the autumn. Fledgling local businesses founded by Hong Kong youth are sharing their eco-friendly products with the community at Cityplaza. H House by Pomaru with natural, eco-themed, indoor and outdoor items from Maggie Hui
