About The Conference
Hong Kong’s first Virtual Metaverse Investment Forum, "Invest in innovation for a better world – from SPACs to the Metaverse” is tailored to both investors looking to invest and entrepreneurs seeking funding. More than 20 speakers and experts from around the world are expected to attend. Investment opportunities in the Metaverse, the role crypto currencies can play in asset allocation, monitoring and regulation of SPACs, investment trends of SPAC in Hong Kong and the US are just some of the topics that will be discussed.
2021 has been named the year of the Metaverse, which is now one of the hottest investment themes for the financial sector. Promising industry pioneers are being approached by Special Purpose Acquisition Companies, and the momentum will only increase throughout 2022. For professional investors, identifying the most promising technologies, exploring potential start-ups, and best using their funds to cultivate the next generation of technology giants is a top priority. At the same time, startups are trying to woo private equity funds. How to best match the two to create win-win outcomes?
Who should attend?
Only those who stay at the very frontiers of technology, who dare invest and lead through innovation, can reap the rewards.
For professional investors, identifying the most promising investment allocation strategies in digital assets, exploring potential start-ups, and best using their funds to cultivate the next generation of technology giants is a top priority.
2022 will be the year to thrive for Hong Kong Startups! Local start-ups and entrepreneurs are warmly invited to participate and use the online platform to demonstrate their innovative solutions. This provides an excellent platform for enterprises to raise angel funding and venture capital funds to find new business partners.
Innovation in utilising raised capital to capture long term growth potential! This is a prerequisite in new investing from SPAC to Metaverse. Equally important, is to become familiar with the rules and regulations in governing SPAC and digital asset investment to safeguard investors' interests.
