Prizes and Awards

There are few prizes that can adequately take the place of the satisfaction and "street cred" you get from winning a major open competition. Not only will you have distinction of being one of HK's finest entrepreneurs, you will have proven it to the greater public and to yourself. In the process marking you out amongst a community of successful business minds.

Although that might be all you were looking for, the organizer has put together a string of prizes to help the winning teams celebrate their successes.
