NEST is the leading full-service innovation accelerator platform in Hong Kong. We invest time and money in entrepreneurs and great startups based in Asia.
Our mission is to be a leading light for entrepreneurship in Asia
NEST will do this by empowering entrepreneurs with capital, knowledge, combined resources & network access.
Every 4 months we hold ‘Pitch Day’ where we select 5 companies we think we’re best positioned to help. Over a period of 3 months, the 5 companies will receive up to HK$500,000 investment in return for 2 to 10% equity, access to the entire NEST team, a weekly strategy meeting, an experienced mentor from an external company, a weekly get together with the other startups and assistance with their documentation.
At the end of the 3 months we hold ‘Demo Day’ where the companies present their business to a room full of 150+ investors. The business will then be listed on our equity crowd-funding website Investable. NEST may also make a follow-on investment.
WHERE WE INVEST
NEST’s target investments are typically seed or startup phase companies. They generally have a disruptive concept, are headquartered in Asia and have rapid scalable growth projections.
We get excited about new technologies and ideas that have the possibility of a positive impact on our lives. We think that most really great ideas out there today fit into that category, which is why our mission is “to help great ideas come to life”.
