HONG KONG, Nov. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Hong Kong's future as a hub for unicorn startups going global will be explored at Silicon Dragon's annual VC and tech program on November 16.      

The program will explore how Hong Kong's emerging companies and their investors are thinking bigger to achieve success in key global markets. A panel of venture investors and dealmakers will discuss financing, IPO and M&A strategies for high-growth Asian companies and their backers. Three founders of fast-growth tech upstarts and their investors will take the stage to tell their startup journey from technology, team business model, capital, profitability to global/regional impact.   

Awards will be presented to the top venture capitalist, founder and dealmaker at Silicon Dragon, Nov. 16 in Hong Kong.  Past Silicon Dragon awards have honored many of China's most promising startups: Klook Travel, WeLab, Tink Labs, Equity Sim, Musical.y, Patsnap, GoGoVan  and Vitargent. All have raised substantial financing after appearing at Silicon Dragon. 

This year's Hong Kong awards program includes a VC panel discussion with several prominent investors including Andrew Chung of 1955 Capital from Silicon Valley, Jeffrey Chi of Vickers Venture from Singapore and Stella Xin of Keytone Ventures from Beijing.  

Now in its sixth year, this annual event is led by Silicon Dragon founder Rebecca Fannin, an expert on global innovation trends, a Forbes and CNBC contributor, and an author of Silicon Dragon (McGraw-Hill, 2008), Startup Asia (Wiley, 2011) and Innovation in Emerging Markets (Palgrave Macmillan, 2016).     

Silicon Dragon brings together business leaders, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, angel investors and leaders of the startup and tech ecosystem to discuss what's next in Asia's emerging tech and venture markets. Participants will gain insights on how to raise financing and develop strategies to succeed in the region and in leading innovation zones such as Silicon Valley, Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai, New York, Tel Aviv and London.
