The GAN Momentum Tour is Coming to Hong Kong

The GAN Momentum Tour is a five-stop global tour that will focus on creating opportunities for startups to succeed and gain traction, wherever they are.

Startups think differently, act differently, and run their organizations in ways that few people will ever understand. It’s because of these differences that startups are the ones changing the landscape of the future, building the next products that we will all use and love. And, startups are the engines behind our cities. They serve an important role, creating new jobs and generating revenue—sustainable work and sustainable wages for their staff and their communities.
But, startups can’t do this alone. They need corporates that want to do business with them. They need investors that provide the necessary capital to get them off the ground. They need mentors that will coach them. And they need accelerators that will bring this support around them for a short, focused period of time.
Which is why we’re so excited to invite you to the GAN Momentum Tour, a five-stop global tour celebrating the startup that’s doing things differently. The startup that decided not to go to the big city. The startup that sees the bigger picture. The startup that’s curious and wants to learn more. The startup that sees success not as individual, but as collective. And the startup that wants to do good work and build something that actually makes a difference.
And it’s for the people who want to support those startups. Who believe in their power and potential for impact.
