StartUp Impact Summit

Last week FNF GIHub participated in the StartUp Impact Summit by sponsoring the event and brought three guest speakers for several sessions, namely Tammuz Dubnoz, founder of Zuzor, Dr. Alexander Görlach, journalist and academic and Ann-Cathrin Riedel, Founder of Up Digital Media and Chair of LOAD e.V.. 

The StartUp Impact Summit was organized by WHub and was held on the last day a week-long StartUp Festival 2019 organized by InvestHK. It has brought together startup entrepreneurs, investors and industry leaders from different sectors to share ideas, make connections and define the trends and technologies.

Tammuz Dubnov opened the summit expressing the importance of creativity in entrepreneurship. Having a distinguished history in dance and gymnastics we saw how he himself implemented his creativity into his motion capture technologies he developed.

Dr. Alexander Görlach moderated a panel on “Connecting Global Ecosystems” with 5 guests from Africa, Asia and Europe to share diverse insight on the development of startup ecosystems around the world.

In addition, Ann Cathrin Riedel talked about the role of women in the sector of digitalisation and the importance of racial and gender diversity in the workplace with Anne O'Dea, Founder of Inspirefest. 

As a highlight of the Summit, FNF GIHub signed a MOU with WHUB aiming to work more closely together in Hong Kong as well as the Greater Bay Area in the future.
