The Alibaba Cloud x KrASIA Global Startup Accelerator will be back in Hong Kong after its first edition in October last year when Ignatica was named the winner. The program brings together new technologists, venture capitalists, and other players across Asia to identify innovative new startups that are compatible with Alibaba’s ecosystem. A series of Demo Days are part of the selection process for the accelerator.
Registration for the next in-person Hong Kong Demo Day—specifically for startups based in, operating in, or planning to enter Hong Kong—is now open and will run until October 14, 12:00 noon (GMT +8). The Demo Day will take place on November 3, from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. (GMT +8).
Alibaba Cloud welcomes startups from any country and industry, including those operating at any stage. All registrations are welcome!
Startups that join the Demo Day stand to win the following prizes:
- USD 60,000 in Alibaba Cloud credit
- 1-on-1 technical support for setup and migration
- Connections to top VCs in Southeast Asia and China
- Opportunities to work with companies in Alibaba’s ecosystem
- Profiles in English and Chinese by KrASIA and 36Kr Global
The program has previously supported participating startups by sharing their stories through video features and profile articles.
Successfully registered startups will also receive USD 3,000 in Alibaba Cloud credit. This will be deployed after November 3.
The selection process begins after you’ve successfully registered. Judges include representatives of Alibaba Cloud and venture capitalists.
