  • Understand how frontier technologies, including distributed ledger technology and artificial intelligence, are redefining business processes and changing the future of industries
  • Understand the jurisdictional advantages of Hong Kong as a leading FinTech hub from regulatory, technology and domain perspectives
  • Visit emerging startups and companies and interact with seasoned industry executives from the Greater Bay Area
  • Immerse in a comprehensive entrepreneurship program and build a viable business plan and proof of concept prototype to present your FinTech idea to a panel of judges and audience

We cover program expenses, but don’t let that be the reason you apply — MEFTI is a life-changing experience. Join us if you are ready to unleash your inner FinTech entrepreneur!
