A Thriving Startup Ecosystem

A Thriving Startup Ecosystem Hong Kong start-up Hong Kong

Hong Kong has much to offer international and mainland Chinese startup founders who set up a business presence here.

  • In 2020, the city ranked 1st in Fraser Institute's 2020 Annual Report on Economic Freedom of the World.
  • According to InvestHK's 2020 Startup Survey, the number of startups in Hong Kong has increased to 3,360 (up 51% from 2017), employing 10,688 staff across 116 co-workspaces, incubators and accelerators.
  • Hong Kong attracts talent from around the globe, and this diversity is reflected in its startup ecosystem. A quarter of the city's startup founders listed their country of origin as outside Hong Kong. This international outlook has created strong startups, with the city boasting eight unicorns.
  • Hong Kong's co-working facilities are rapidly expanding in number, diversity and range of services. These spaces offer great community spirit and opportunities for collaboration with like-minded professionals. (Find out more about them here.)
