The early stages are considered by many to be the most complicated ones in the life of a start-up. Finding enough funds to finance your business idea, how brilliant this might be, is often not a straightforward task as the investors are spoilt with choice in the Hong Kong very competitive and crowded start-ups market. It is for this reason that every entrepreneur has to master a particular set of skills in order to stand out from the mass.
On October 9th, the Italian Chamber of Commerce, in collaboration with the Spanish Chamber of Commerce, the Spanish Women Speaker Association (AMHH) and Hawksford is glad to invite you to attend this event gathering a panel of accomplished entrepreneurs and investment professionals for an interesting hour-long discussion and Q&A session. Each of them will share their experiences on how they had the support of their first investors and will deliver some essential tips about the art of pitching.
