FinTecubator, a Fintech incubator programme initiated by Hang Seng Bank, is a platform that enables intrapreneurs to share innovative start-up ideas and helps to nurture them with the resources from both inside and outside Hang Seng Bank to boost its launching.
What we look for:
FinTecubator is looking for those who want to make the world a better place with innovation. We welcome strategic partners from the whole banking industry including investors, enterprises, academia communities, , tech innovators to join our internal innovation adventure.
If you are an entrepreneur who has a creative idea or a fintech product, and you are also seeking opportunity to work with us, we are also welcome and warmly opening the door to you.
Start-up Ecosystem: To spark innovation, FinTecubator provides the soil for creative talents to sprout their new business models by building a start-up ecosystem.
Our intrapreneurs can share their ideas within the FinTecubator community seeking support or forming the internal start-up companies. Through interaction with the external investors, enterprises, academia, communities and tech innovators, our intrapreneurs will have a deeper insight into the market and in return, more innovative ideas will be inspired.
As for the strategic partners and investors, FinTecubator offers them an open platform in which they can scout the most promising start-up idea that meets their development needs and helps to expand their business.
Support for Start-ups: FinTecubator provides the new start-ups with an efficient channel to pitch their unique business proposal directly to Hang Seng Bank and other investors. A screening process will then be conducted by the panel to assess the viability, scalability and profitability of the business models. Those who successfully go through this process will receive financial aid, for instance, an initial seed fund, and will advance to the next stage of prototyping in cooperation with the FinTecubator team.
To facilitate this process, we will provide the intrapreneurs access to internal resources such as office space, mentorship, technology support, business matching service, marketing and branding assistance.
Furthermore, we will source external support (e.g. Tech Talks; Trending News; Innovation Lab; Collaboration...) to add fuel to the programme. Intrapreneurs can have a deeper and broader vision in the Fintech market as well as the customers that help improve their business model.
