Monexo @ Pre-Techathon 2015

15 July, 2015

Techathon 2015, held on the weekend of 3rd July, is a seeding tech startup event held in Hong Kong jointly hosted by Kairos Society Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

Prior to the event, Kairos Society Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Polytechnic University organized two pre-Techathon workshops on June 13th and June 27th respectively, to allow people to network, and understand the nature of the Techathon.

The pre-Techathon held on June 27th centered on FinTech and Educational Technology, as Mukesh Bubna, one of our co-founders and our CEO was invited to deliver a keynote address on financial technology in Hong Kong, and its overall growth. The aim of the presentation was to provide young entrepreneurial minds with the required knowledge in fintech, for them to develop innovative ideas and products. Following the presentation, Mukesh engaged in a panel discussion that was open to questions from the public, where he discussed the role of disruptive financial technology firms, as well as their importance in the future.

Hong Kong’s young entrepreneurial minds were present at this event, soaking in the knowledge delivered by Mukesh, and it is the hope of Monexo that these individuals contribute to the rising influence of disruptive financial technology in Hong Kong.

At the Techathon, students formed teams with the goal of developing a concrete business plan over a weekend in any branch of Educational Technology, Fintech, Internet of Things, or Wearable Technology, after which they presented in front of an esteemed panel of judges for the opportunity to pitch for the HKSTP-PolyU Tech Incubation Fund.Fantastique parc aquatique gonflable
