Open Call: GO HONG KONG 2022 | 2 week hybrid acceleration program in Fall 2022!

Event Details



GO HONG KONG 2022 is a two-week HYBRID acceleration program for Austrian later-stage startups aiming to internationalize to Asia, especially to the Greater Bay Area. This unique program is hybrid and flexible to give you the best support (strategically/financially) in your internationalization plans.

This unique program is organized by the Global Incubator Network Austria (short GIN) in cooperation with AUSSENWIRTSCHAFT AUSTRIA and is is the ideal preparation for Austrian startups from various verticals in the field of GreenTech & sustainability (PropTech, Transport & Mobility, Energy & Utilities, Hospitality & Tourism, FoodTech, Green Finance) to take the next steps of their expansion. Benefit from a digital onboarding program with video masterclasses, IP coaching and mentoring, 1:1 business meetings and follow-up on-site activities* in Hong Kong if business travels to the Greater Bay Area are possible.


*IMPORTANT: This program is planned as a hybrid program with physical acitivities in Vienna, Austria. If travels to Hong Kong are possible without going into quarantine for longer than 1 week, part 2 of the hybrid program can take place on-site. If the travel restrictions remain with an obligatory quarantaine-stay of 7+ days, the program will take place digitally and the physical trip to Hong Kong/GBA can be made at a later point in time.
