We are excited to announce the eleven companies that will be joining #propUP Techstars Startup Program powered by MTR in Hong Kong.

In less than three months, we have 132 promising companies all over the world applied to the program. The selected eleven companies represent a mix of entrepreneurs, products and industries, who believe that we can enhance the customer experience, safety, and performance of the shopping malls in one place.

This is the first program powered MTR and supported by various communities such as Alibaba Entrepreneurs Fund, Austrade, Cyberport, HKSTP, InvestHK, Jumpstart, RISE, Tencent Westart and is one of the very first Techstars program in Hong Kong.
