Takeaways from the Roadshow

Takeaways from the Roadshow

August 3, 2018

What a week it was! We've met 300+ FinTech professionals during our Hong Kong FinTech Week roadshow in Beijing, Hangzhou and Shanghai. Here are our quick takeaways from this trip.

 

> Hangzhou and its new Qianjiang city surprised a lot. Very different impression since our last visit to Hangzhou almost 12 years ago. You can barely see on the streets of this brand new town any person older than 35-40 years. Just like Shenzhen, the headquarter of the tech giant Tencent, Hangzhou is a hometown of Jack Ma's Alibaba Group and its sister company Ant Financial, the largest FinTech in the world.

 

> Calling China as a cashless society is already a cliche. Yet, it's still impressive to see how QR codes are becoming an unavoidable part of every citizen's life. From exchanging contacts to ordering food in the restaurant, from paying bills and calling a taxi, to borrowing power banks and using shared bikes.

 

> Most of the FinTech executives and entrepreneurs in China were very curious about the latest HKMA initiative to grant so-called 'virtual banks' licenses. It’s a true game changer.

 

All of these and much more we will discuss during the #HKFinTechWeek on Oct 29 - Nov 2. Stay tuned! www.fintechweek.hk
