Being a co-working company, we strive to provide more than just a workspace. theDesk kicked off a unique partnership with HSBC with the mission to help accelerate entrepreneurs’ and startups’ business banking processes. We caught up with Nick Tang from HSBC and our members Suzanne Chan and Cecilia Law from Smart Academy to share their experience on the partnership and how HSBC can help the startups.
The kickoff of the HSBC and theDesk partnership has reached remarkable results earlier in September with a series of events starting from late August this year. To support our members’ entrepreneurial dreams, HSBC has set up a pop-up counter for private consultation services at theDesk Leighton Centre.
HSBC representatives were stationed at theDesk for two weeks from 27th August to 7th September to offer their knowledge and skills to our members and neighboring community. The private consultation covered topics ranging from the latest innovative digital banking solutions, bank account opening, commercial lending, international trade, payment to receivables management.
On top of the private consultation counter, a luncheon featured on “Leveraging Technology for eCommerce” was held during lunchtime on 6th September. The event was greatly welcomed by the community, providing insights into how eCommerce can help businesses better manage their operations such as ordering, inventory, delivery, bookkeeping and payments.
Smart Academy, one of our members at theDesk has been impressed by the services HSBC Business Banking offers. Cecilia Law and Suzanne Chan, founders of Smart Academy, found what makes HSBC stand out from other banks are the simplicity and quickness in procedures, and most importantly the HSBC banking services are mobile-friendly.
