The Official 2020 VC List of Hong Kong

In this resource, I list dozens of VC’s in Hong Kong that might be able to help you get funding.

Despite all the horrendous turmoil that’s been going on in 2020, VC firms are still funding startups.

Is It Still Possible To Get Funding In 2020?

Sure, but like most things in 2020, it’s gonna be difficult. However, don’t let’s be negative! Go For It!

As market chaos mounts and coronavirus uncertainty continue to persist in late March 2020 (when this post was first published) Hong Kong private markets are feeling the pressure.

Private equity and venture capital are equipped to weather such storms (within reason) but it won’t be a smooth ride for them, not least in Hong Kong, a city that has really had a difficult time since June of 2019.

It’s a mix bag understanding how Coronavirus will impact PE and VC fundraising and deal sourcing but what we do know is this: a clever investor will always back the jockey over the horse and if you’re idea and execution is solid then sure, you can still get funding.

Go For It!

I’ve organized the categories as follows, so hit the category that best suits your industry and let us know how you get on:
