What Is
Hack.Asia

Asia, home to more than half the world’s population and nearly half of the world’s middle class, is predicted to have a bright future. Sustainable, inclusive growth is the goal and making this happen will require a constant flow of new ideas and emerging innovators and entrepreneurs.

Inspiring the next generation of innovators and business leaders is the aim of Jardine Matheson's Hack.Asia event that invites students, and startups, to develop technology-driven solutions to address current challenges faced by our companies and strategic partners. Given our reach, access to resources, and renowned entrepreneurial spirit, the best Hack.Asia solutions – if adopted – can bring transformative change throughout Asia, and beyond.

Participate in the next edition of Hack.Asia and join us in:

  • Celebrating Hong Kong’s creativity and entrepreneurial spirit
  • Showcasing the deep impact of innovative solutions
  • Unleashing the power of the tech ecosystem and their “make a difference” outcomes
  • Showcasing the combined strengths and benefits of the ecosystem
