Braving the Epidemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought severe challenges to the world. As we face a completely different world and way of life, digital technology applications have become the key to acclimatizing to the new landscape and seizing new opportunities.

As early as February this year, a few young entrepreneurs at Cyberport realised their innovations could contribute to the fight against the virus. They swiftly put their passion into action with adapted applications, kickstarting the Braving the Epidemic movement. This initiative quickly gathered momentum as start-ups and technology companies within the Cyberport community rallied to provide digital technology solutions that would help the public tide over current difficulties.

Today, Cyberport’s “Braving the Epidemic” movement has evolved into a selection of over 60 applications to help fight the epidemic and respond to the new normal, catering to the needs of frontline medical staff, parents, schools or students adapting to home learning, those forced into quarantine at home, grassroots families and other disadvantaged communities, as well as small to large businesses reeling from the pandemic’s economic impact and more. Meanwhile, Cyberport has been actively connecting complementary start-ups and companies within the community to join forces and better serve the public. Through the power of technology, the movement continues to inject positive energy and impact into our society’s collective effort to navigate epidemic challenges, while providing a model for local and overseas companies or institutions to take reference from.

As society accelerates digital transformation and enters a new normal, the demand for digital technology is bound to grow. We at Cyberport and our community are ready to march ahead in this unique role with staunch commitment. Through solidarity under the “Braving the Epidemic” banner, and by leveraging the strong resilience of digital technology, we will lead society to embrace innovation, realise opportunities to drive sustained growth of the new economy, and walk with Hong Kong as we set out to navigate the new normal.
