We had another action-packed week at AcceleratorHK. Early in the week one team released their PhoneGap based cross-platform MVP and they win the award for being the first team to have an app on my phone.
Another team had their MVP launched this week as well, we are starting to really move along now.
Next we had mentor and angel investor James Giancotti come in and spend a lot of time with the teams. James has a large amount of experience advising early stage startups and was very helpful with the teams who are looking for funding (just about all of them .)
The Portuguese teams re-emerged from their near two week long code-fest to come by the Good Lab and, well, code.
Paul did a going away farewell address to the entire Hong Kong Startup community. It was a complete sellout (standing room only!) and a great time.
Members of cohort #1 and several mentors showed up and also got their tee-shirts.
Paul also got several Hong Kong startups to commit to launch date, revenue, and other key deliverables in front of the entire community. Nothing like peer pressure!
Lastly, we had a rooftop party at IFC for Paul’s sendoff. I used DooD!’s MVP to have some fun:
This week we have a week long mentor visit, two more MVPs to play with, and Prototype Day #2! Stay tuned….
