Hong Kong's 10 hottest startups to watch in 2017

Wellness apps and wearables dominate.

This year’s ten hottest startups in Hong Kong have an average funding of over HK$17m.

This is our sixth edition of the hottest startups issue where we present notable and up-and-coming local startups. In compiling the list, we first looked at the startups we have
featured on our website, www.hongkongbusiness.hk, and we then filtered by amount of funding raised. Startups whose funding is not disclosed are not included, and they must have started operating in the last three years. We then checked our list with industry players to get Hong Kong’s hottest startups 2017 recommendations and to weed out those that do not make thegrade.

For this year’s list, the lowest funding is at HK$3.8m. We don’t claim that this is the most comprehensive list, and whilst we have tried to verify funding quantums, we cannot verify
all amounts declared. Nevertheless, we feel this list represents the most talked about startups in Hong Kong. Enjoy the read and send feedback to research@charltonmediamail.com.
