Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP) announced today that the applications for the Elevator Pitch Competition 2019 (EPiC) have already started in earnest, and invites more start-ups from around the world to come forward and take part in Hong Kong’s signature start-up competition event, to be held in Hong Kong on 8 Nov. Successful applicants have the opportunity to meet more than 1500 investors, accelerators, business leaders and other startups around the globe.Since applications started in July, HKSTP has received tremendous response locally and from all the world. There are currently over 200 entries with a large majority of overseas applicants, coming from 41 countries and cities.
Now in its fourth year, the EPiC competition gives 100 high potential start-ups an opportunity to pitch their innovative business ideas to judges within a 60-second elevator ride at the International Commerce Centre (ICC), Hong Kong’s tallest building. Ten finalists are picked, who will be given another chance for a longer 3-minute pitch, this time to a panel of judges made up of investors and industry leaders. Overseas startups to make the 100 list will receive a round-trip flight to join the competition.There are four broad categories for the competition – Artificial Intelligence & Robotics, Fintech, Health Technology and Smart City. Overall winners stand to win cash prizes of up to US$ 150,000, while finalists may also stand to win prize money if their ideas impress under the four entry categories.The 100 finalists will also join a pre-competition EPiC Acceleration Programme, where they get insights into Hong Kong’s start-up ecosystem, get to practice with potential business partners and investors during mock sessions, as well as learn about business opportunities in Hong Kong, China and Asia. For this year’s competition, a new category will be added for Hong Kong’s secondary school students to spark their entrepreneurial spirit.Last year, the competition attracted 591 entries from across the globe and 60 percent of the applications came from overseas. Of the 100 that made it to the finals, about 70 were from overseas coming from 24 different markets, including Australia, Canada, Germany, India, Japan, New Zealand and the United States, among others. The event brought more than 1,000 entrepreneurs, venture capital firms, angel investors, industry players, incubators, accelerators and tech disruptors together, to bolster the start-up ecosystem in Hong Kong.

Lavorare nel Mondo al Globe di Bologna

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 21 Maggio 2010

Bologna 21 maggio 2010 dalle 9.00 alle 18.30, presso L’ Universita degli Studi di Bologna (ex convento Santa Cristina), Lavorare nel Mondo presentera le opportunità nel settore della cooperazione internazionale reperibili on line: dalle associazioni registrate, alle vacancy delle ONG italiane sul sito, nonché la possibilità di rendere il proprio curriculum visibile a più organizzazioni in un solo click. All’interno dei seminari, Lavorare nel Mondo mostrerà ai giovani i requisiti di accesso e le reali opportunità di lavoro con le ONG: sono infatti circa 6.000 gli operatori (di cui almeno il 50% donne) che ogni anno vengono impiegati nei progetti di cooperazione allo sviluppo e aiuto umanitario promossi dalle organizzazioni non governative, anche se spesso domanda e offerta faticano a trovarsi. Fare l’operatore della cooperazione significa proporsi per contratti di 6-12-24 mesi in aree del mondo a volte disagiate, spesso difficili, dell’Africa, dell’America Latina, del Medio ed Estremo Oriente piuttosto che dei Balcani ed è necessario partire con una buona preparazione.  Una giornata per conoscere i requisiti necessari per entrare nel mondo della cooperazione internazionale, per capire come costruire un curriculum vitae, per comprendere i canali di accesso e le opportunità reali per partire con le ONG italiane in progetti all’estero.
Lavorare nel Mondo è un progetto della SISCOS, il patronato per l’assistenza assicurativa a quanti operano nella cooperazione internazionale, che da oltre 25 anni tutela chi interviene in paesi dalle condizioni ambientali, climatiche e sociali difficili. On line dal 23 aprile 2010, Lavorare nel Mondo è un portale ad accesso gratuito pensato per facilitare l’incontro tra ONG e candidati nella cooperazione internazionale.
