Better Business Innovation Series


In this new series we will be exploring innovations in the field of better business - doing the right things in the right way. Each event will adopt a different theme, and aims to connect all interested players in the ecosystem - a first for Hong Kong - from start-ups and NGOs through established businesses to members of government, academia and the investment community.


The China Insider Series


The China Insider Series, sponsored by HSBC Commercial Banking, and headed by the China Committee, looks at business issues affecting China and Hong Kong. From UK-China/Hong Kong trade relations to economic growth through expanding industries in technology, infrastructure and e-commerce, this series will discuss the challenges and opportunities with a developing China economy




The Entrepreneur Series - “Let it Fly”

Virgin Atlantic is sponsoring a series of four talks. Over the coming months, we will invite the hottest Hong Kong-based entrepreneurs who are shaking up the start-up world to share their success stories. You will be able to listen to how they build companies, inspire their teams and keep the business running amid challenges. The tagline of the series “Let it Fly” captures the pioneering spirit and entrepreneurial essence and through these events, we hope to inspire and challenge the audience to seek out new experiences and opportunities.




Innovation & Technology

The newly created Innovation and Technology series sponsored by BT. The idea for the series was put forward by the Innovation and Technology committee and was created to provide a platform and sharing forum for IT professionals in Hong Kong looking to keep up with the latest trends, best practices and most importantly to hear practical tips on how to help grow their business.

Some of the areas of discussion will include Technology Compliance for regulated industries, practicalities and benefits for de-centralised organisations as well as data protection and cross boundary issues.


Retail and Consumer Series


The Retail and Consumer Series sponsored by PwC will explore some of the major issues affecting the retail and consumer sector such as the challenges of luxury retail, practical advice on how to break into China, taxation, data analytics, reputational risk and customer experience. 


Business Angel Programme


The British Chamber of Commerce’s Business Angel Programme, launched in late 2007, was the first such initiative to be launched in Hong Kong by any of the chambers of commerce. The British Chamber’s Angel Investment Committee is a well respected and leading source of advice and conduit to funding for young Hong Kong enterprises looking for initial or growth investment from our growing network of Angel investors.

Since its inception, the Angel committee has reviewed applications from hundreds of enthusiastic Hong Kong entrepreneurs, introducing many of them to a wealth of Angel Investors and Professional Advisors drawn from the membership of the British Chamber. The Business Angel Programme runs a series of events every year which allows shortlisted candidates to present their business plans in front of a panel of investors and enjoy the opportunity to network and make valuable contacts. The British Chamber Angel Investment Committee is sponsored by Baker Tilly Hong Kong and supported by TiE HK and Connect Communication.

Please visit the Business Angel Programme website for more information on how you can be involved:

Smart Tips for Small Businesses


The “Smart Tips for Small Businesses” series, sponsored by CBRE, is a series of seminars that give practical advice on how to run a small business. Expert speakers give practical advice on topics of interest to SMEs and the wider business community.

Topics covered in recent seminars include "10 Lessons in Social Media", "Marketing Strategies for SME’s", "How to use Networking to Increase Sales", "Business Leads and Results", "Standard Working Hours – What this means for your business?" and "Making the Most of the Media".

The events are held at the CBRE offices in Exchange Square or at a centrally located venue, and are kept at an affordable cost to allow the maximum number of participants to attend. Seminars attract attendees from all industries and are open to all, whether Chamber members or not, providing a perfect opportunity to network and mingle with fellow business-minded people.
