Last night saw keen entrepreneurs, young startups and prospective investors alike firing incisive and practical questions at three funding and investment experts at the Meet the Investors event at theDesk, co-working and events space in Sai Wan. The speakers were Adam Wong, private banker, Adrian Yap, CPA, co-founder and CIO of theDesk, and Alex So, an angel investor behind ventures like Grana, Floship and Soundbrenner. They began with a Q&A session, moderated by theDesk co-founder Oscar Venhuis and advised the eager group on what investors look for in young startups, the importance of managing investor relations, and how finding a business partner is like getting married. The Q&A session was followed by a networking session, where people of different business sectors not only had a chance to talk to the speakers, but were also able to broaden their circles and connect with each other.
