HK Science Park: What’s next in HK's innovation journey?

Supported by the Business Policy Unit and Innovation & Technology Committee

 

Home to 11 unicorns, five of the world’s top 100 universities and located at the heart of the emerging Greater Bay Area (GBA) innovation powerhouse, Hong Kong has immense potential to develop into a global innovation and technology (I&T) hub. As the city’s largest R&D base, Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP) believes that huge opportunities lie ahead for the I&T industry.

The Chamber is pleased to welcome Albert Wong, CEO of HKSTP, to share with you what’s next in Hong Kong’s innovation journey, and what the growth opportunities look like for start-ups and corporates looking to extend their reach into the GBA, across Asia and beyond.

 

About the speaker

Albert Wong was appointed CEO of HKSTP in August 2016.  The purpose of Science Park is to accelerate the development of Technology, Innovation and Entrepreneurship of Hong Kong.

Committed to the success of Hong Kong’s future, Albert and his team are responsible for providing world-class services at the Park, to achieve their objective of helping technology companies and talents to realise their commercial potential. These services include technology incubation programmes, tools and research labs for application and product development, early-stage investments, mentoring and business consulting, and connecting Park companies with local industry and trade associations. 

Albert holds an Engineering Degree from the University of Hong Kong and an MBA from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. The 30-plus years of commercial, industrial and leadership roles with various multinationals have provided Albert with the critical appreciation and understanding of building companies, investment networks and solving market needs. The 15 years spent with GE in the US headquarters, Asia-Pacific and China – where he was responsible for M&A, Business Development, Product Management, and Business Operations – were especially significant for him, providing Albert with the knowledge and connections to lead HKSTP today.

Outside of work, Albert actively contributes to the community. He is a member of The Court of The University of Hong Kong and a board member the Hong Kong Sports Institute. An avid runner, Albert regularly takes part in marathons around the world.
