About this Event


The Intellectual Property Innovation & Entrepreneurship Contest Global (IPIEC Global) is one of the innovation and entrepreneurship contests at the state level with greatest global influence. Having been successfully held for two years, the contest spans 9 countries and regions, including UK, Germany, Switzerland, Russia, Israel, Australia, South Korea, Malaysia and Hong Kong. The IPIEC Global 2018 has successfully attracted 1285 applications from around the world. The contest aims at connecting innovative technologies with enterprises, marketing operation with government policies, facilitating collaborative innovation in the industry, and enhancing competitive advantages.

2018年,大賽首次加入香港賽區,由香港天使投資基金會及匯桔網承辦,推動本港企業發起創新技術意向投資需求並鼓勵徵集本地創科項目。香港出線項目”Novus Life Sciences”最終擊敗其他賽區參賽者獲得年度全球總冠軍,贏得78萬港元獎金及企業投資對接機會。

In 2018, it was the first time to have a Hong Kong Chapter, which was co-organised by the Hong Kong Angel Investment Foundation and (WTOIP), which promoted the initiation of intentional investment in innovative technologies of enterprises in Hong Kong and encouraged the collection of local innovation and technology (I&T) projects. The winner of the IPIEC Global 2018 Hong Kong Chapter "Novus Life Sciences" was ultimately awarded the annual global overall championship by defeating candidates from other regional chapters, winning a reward of HK$780,000 and corporate investment matching opportunities.


Hong Kong has been invited to hold a regional contest again in 2019. There will be 11 themes for the Hong Kong Chapter, including “Fintech”, “Artificial Intelligence & Big Data”, “Biomedicine”, “Advanced Manufacturing”, “New Generation Information Technology”, “Internet of Things”, “New Energy”, “Energy Saving & Environmental Protection”, “New Materials”, “New Agriculture” and “Other Innovative Technologies”. Since June, the Hong Kong Chapter Organising Committee has been collecting intentional investment needs for innovative technologies matching our contest themes from enterprises through major chambers of commerce in Hong Kong. As of August, 10 Hong Kong enterprises have been interested in investing in I&T projects with a total intentional investment of HK$80 million. This will enable contestant teams to gain corporate investment matching opportunities in addition to competing for prizes.


The Opening Ceremony of the Hong Kong Chapter will be held at Hong Kong Cyberport at 2:30 pm on 29 August 2019. Enterprises participating in the innovation investment will be invited to share their investment needs. A one-month project collection exercise will follow and the application will be closed on 30 September 2019. During the period, several Project Recruitment Seminars will be held to introduce the investment needs of Hong Kong enterprises and the contest details.


The Hong Kong Chapter Final Contest will be held at Hong Kong Cyberport at 2 pm on 6 November 2019. The ten finalists will give their pitching onstage. The Champion and the 1st Runner-up will represent Hong Kong at the Global Grand Final of IPIEC Global 2019 to be held in Guangzhou in December to vie for the prize of US$100,000 and matching global I&T venture capital.
