Our 12-week program
SuperCharger 2.0 starts January 9, 2017: A curriculum for success
SuperCharger has designed a structured curriculum to create success. The accelerator assists with company building, mentorship and advice in areas such as market entry, regulatory obligations and joint ventures opportunities. The program itself coincides with the peak time of financial and start-up activity in Hong Kong. Within the first 3 weeks of the program, teams will be exposed to the Asian Financial Forum and the Invest HK Startmeup week, providing a great opportunity for companies to get plugged into the global FinTech eco-system and engage with world class decision-makers.
