In addition to exploring tech venture trends and driving deal-flow for start-ups, the Cyberport Venture Capital Forum (CVCF) 2020 hosted two online graduation ceremonies.

The Cyberport Entrepreneurship Programmes Graduation Ceremony celebrated the entrepreneurial milestones of more than 300 entrepreneurs of the Cyberport University Partnership Programme (CUPP), the Cyberport Creative Micro Fund (CCMF), and the Cyberport Incubation Programme (CIP). 

The Cyberport Financial Practitioners FinTech Training Programme graduation ceremony was officiated by Joseph Chan, Under Secretary for Financial Services and the Treasury of the HKSAR Government, and by Cyberport’s Chairman Dr George Lam, CEO Mr Peter Yan, and Chief Public Mission Officer Mr Eric Chan.

In addressing to over 1,500 programme participants, Joseph Chan revealed that, given the popularity of the Programme among industry practitioners, the Financial Services and the Treasure Bureau is discussing with Cyberport about extending the Programme with a new edition.

Having an important goal of the Programme to speed up the digital transformation of the financial sector, Cyberport created special awards to recognise financial institutions that adopted FinTech applications of Cyberport start-ups in 2020.

FinTech Transformation Award was conferred to DBS Bank for adopting the solutions of Mindlayer, Apoidea, CoverGo, and Heycoins, and to JETCO for adopting Wesurance’s solutions.

In addition, Bank of China was bestowed a FinTech Talent Development Award for signing up the most joniees for the training sessions, while 5 practitioners from Sumitomo Mitsui Banking, China Minsheng Banking Corporation Limited and Bank of East Asia claimed the FinTech Talent Award for being the individuals who completed the most training sessions.
