What is the process of Investment Due Diligence for Fast Track 2020?
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 selected investment prospects following meetings and pitching at HK FinTech Week 2020.
Due diligence is a rigorous evaluation of an investment opportunity before any commitment to invest. The process involves an in-depth investigation of the market opportunity, business model, key performance metrics, and management team. Certain investors also have requirements outside of due diligence, including Cyberport and HKSTP, which can be found in more detail here.
InvestHK and Finnovasia shall neither have any responsibility nor liability regarding the due diligence and relevant meetings and pitching
