Frequently Asked Questions

GENERAL

What are the programme elements?
Fast Track 2020 will involve pitching; meetings with potential clients and partners; and consultations with government, regulators and experts to develop your market entry and growth strategy
Is there any participation fee?

There is no fee for Fast Track 2020.

Are there any eligibility criteria?
We are looking for companies with existing solutions that fit our key verticals. We will evaluate your application by looking at how well your solution tackles a problem, and whether corporates can save time, money or resources by implementing it.
When is the application deadline?
Applications open in July and will close on August 31 for the pitching. After August 31, applications can still be made for B2B matchmaking.  
What is the structure of the pitching?
Selected companies will be invited to pitch in a virtual semi-final, judged by Fast Track Corporate Champions. The winners of the semi-finals will go on to pitch in the FinTechHK Global Final at Hong Kong FinTech Week in November.  
Do I need to travel to Hong Kong?
Fast Track 2020 is fully accessible online, though if you are able to travel we welcome you to join us at Hong Kong FinTech Week itself on 5th & 6th November.
Who are the Corporate Champions?
We work with large corporates in a range of sectors who are looking for financial technology to improve their business, and who are actively engaging with scaling FinTech companies.
Who are the Fast Track Partners?
We work with expert service providers who help startups and scaleups grow and manage their business. Partners offer fast, free, confidential advice and discounted services to help support your expansion in Hong Kong. Find them onsite at the Fast Track Village or virtually on the event platform.  
How are 1-2-1 meetings organised?
Matches are made based on our Corporate Champions’ requirements for the types of solutions or companies they are looking for. Startups can request meetings but meetings will need to be accepted by the Corporate Champions before they are confirmed. After the competition deadline of 31 August you can still apply for matchmaking alone.  
Are there any prizes?
There will be a live prize giving for the winning company, and the winner is invited to join us at HK FinTech Week 2021 with a free startup booth exhibition space.

What is the process of Investment Due Diligence for Fast Track 2020?
Fast Track 2020 Investment Due Diligence Disclaimer
Meeting with and pitching to investors during Fast Track 2020 does not guarantee an investment into your company. Investors participating in Fast Track will conduct due diligence on all investment prospects following meetings and pitching at HK FinTech Week 2020.
Due diligence is a rigorous evaluation of an investment opportunity before the commitment to invest. The process involves an in-depth investigation of the market opportunity, business model, key performance metrics, and management team.
InvestHK and Finnovasia shall not have neither any responsibility nor liability regarding the due diligence and relevant meetings and pitching.
