Cyberport launches innovative open work space for start-ups

In January, Cyberport's Entrepreneurship Centre launched Connect-Space, a unique shared working environment for entrepreneurs and ICT start-ups who are Cyberport Creative Micro Fund grantees, Cyberport Incubation Programme alumni and incubatees, particularly for those based outside the Cyberport campus, as well as service subscribers of the Cyberport Collaboration Centre.

The open shared space will allow like-minded users to network and exchange ideas, and work in a collaborative environment that nurtures innovation and talent. Networking events will be held regularly to allow users to meet each other and as much as possible draw out potential business alliances.

For users, the free of charge space comes complete with mailbox, locker, free power charging facilities, high speed Wi-Fi access, use of a conference room, a multi-purpose room, brainstorming room and a pantry. In addition, users can access Cyberport's state-of-the-art Fitness Centre and receive shuttle bus free tickets.

To find out more information, email ecentre@cyberport.hk or call 3166 3900.
