One of Hong Kong's leading conglomerates will be investing up to HKD$80m (US$10m) into startups that graduate from their upcoming accelerator program.

The STILE Initiative by STAN Group is a 3 month startup acceleration program based in Hong Kong focused on helping technology startups across Asia achieve next level growth by leveraging on the conglomerate's region-wide resources.

As the STAN Group conglomerate has a major market presence in a diverse range of business sectors, this will add tremendous value to startups that aim to scale quicker across Asia.

Chairman of STAN Group, Stan Tang.

The program which is now in its second cohort, is accepting applications for startups from Seed to Series-A in the Fintech, PropertyTech, and LivingTech verticals. 

Other requirements for the startups are as follows:

  • Based in Asia.
  • Companies should have at least 2 co-founders.
  • Have product(s)/service(s) generating revenue in the market.
