DYXnet Participates in the Innovation and Technology Policy Summit

Lap Man supports Hong Kong startups with the Company’s perpetual efforts

 

(Hong Kong, December 18, 2015) DYXnet, the leading Greater China's ICT (Information and Communications Technology) service provider, is pleased to announce it attended the Innovation and Technology Policy Summit organized by Our Hong Kong Foundation (OHKF), being held 18 December 2015 at the Renaissance Hong Kong Harbour View Hotel. Lap Man, Founder & CEO of DYXnet, has been invited as a panelist at the panel discussion – “Startup Hong Kong Style”— hosted by John Zhao, Chairman & CEO of Hony Capital, and Executive Vice President of Legend Holdings Corporation. Other panelists included founders of Lap Man’s investee companies, namely 51WM, Delivery Republic and HKTaxi.

 

In light of the hot discussion on how Hong Kong shall position itself in such a highly competitive arena of innovation and technology, OHKF has conducted a research on “The Ecosystem of Innovation and Technology in Hong Kong” under the leadership of Professor Lap-chee Tsui. The research result has initiated further dialogues among thought leaders at the Summit.

 

Lap Man, Founder & CEO of DYXnet, remarked: “I am delighted to be one of the speakers at The Innovation and Technology Policy Summit organized by OHKF, whose purpose has always been promoting the long-term and overall interest of Hong Kong. As a local entrepreneur, I really want to take part in society, contributing my efforts in enhancing Hong Kong’s competitiveness, especially in the area of innovation and technology. Seeing innovation is critical to the future and sustainability of Hong Kong’s success, I began to support local start-ups, including ‘51WM’, an O2O food delivery mobile platform, ‘Delivery Republic’, an on-demand delivery company, and ‘HKTaxi’, Hong Kong’s most popular local taxi calling app in 2014. Apart from funding these startups as an angel investor, I also give out business advice and assistance to young entrepreneurs at the Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups by sharing my previous founding experience to inspire, motivate and encourage them to tackle their challenges along the way.”

 

Lap Man continued: “I’m glad to see Mr. John Zhao as the host of the panel discussion.  He was one of DYXnet’s important investors during our startup period and has helped me leap over numerous hurdles with his concrete advice. He has been an inspirational mentor and I would like to follow suit by helping other startups with my knowledge as my contribution to Hong Kong now. With Ravic Li, General Manager and Co-founder of ‘51WM’; Kay Lui, Co-Founder of ‘HKTaxi’; and George Kee, Founder & CEO of ‘Delivery Republic’ joining me at the panel discussion to share their market positioning, challenges we are facing, as well as to discuss whether a business plan is required before founding a company, how we can capture the opportunities in China market and the beauty of founding a company, I believe it would be a valuable experience for all guests.”
