As one of the platinum sponsors at innovfest unbound, HSBC presented the HSBC Hex Hive - exclusive networking space where participants were given the opportunity to connect with the HSBC’s network of private and institutional investors, large corporates, startups and in-house financial experts.

Pitch Competitions at HSBC Stephen and Stitt’s Den

To encourage innovation and help propel the growth of promising tech startups, 20 passionate entrepreneurs were invited to pit their unique ideas against each other in two rounds of den style pitches. From robotics to workflow automation with bots and artificial intelligence using big data, all of them shared the same ambition as us – to help communities to thrive.

There’s nothing like fresh ideas and a passionate belief in them to inspire and bring out the best in us. We’re throwing our weight behind the people whose ideas could become the next big thing. We know how hard it is to get started and this is our way of giving promising firms a foot up.

Buzz in the Hex

Exciting times lie ahead and across HSBC group as we continue to bring ground-breaking and disruptive digital banking solutions to our clients. In this panel discussion, hear from our HSBC subject experts more about HSBC’s innovation roadmap, fintech and digitalisation initiatives where the bank is hoping to redefine customers’ banking experience and its own efficiencies.

Adding to the buzz at our hospitality lounge #HSBCHexHive, HSBC also facilitated lively discussions with leading venture capitalists and investment firms, explored views on the ASEAN startup landscape, scalability of disruptive technologies and characteristics that investors look for when screening investment opportunities. In this panel discussion, we spoke with some of the leading venture capitalists and investment firms for their insights - it is observed that globally it has been an extremely positive start for the venture capitalists market, with USD49.3 billion invested worldwide in Q1 of 2018i. However, we are seeing declining trends in deal volume with median deal sizes increasing across the board. Is this an indication of a maturing Singapore eco-system?
