FAQ

Awww, there are no startups in Hong Kong...

You’d be surprised at how much more tech entrepreneurship there is in Hong Kong today compared to just one year ago. The community is tight-knit and supportive of each other.

And if that’s not enough, here’s a partial list of over 125 Hong Kong startups to change your mind.

Why should I support local startups when tech makes us global?

Lots of reasons. Supporting Hong Kong startups helps diversify the local economy, creates new jobs, supports the talent that we have here...

I don’t need any of the things in this basket.

Sounds like you just found yourself a great gift idea for someone else.

Can I buy multiple baskets?

Yes. But since we don't have a shopping cart system, you will have to go through the purchase process multiple times.

I just bought one for all my friends. When are you coming out with the next hug?

In lean startup fashion, we will monitor how this first bundle works out and will then put together the next one.

I just paid on PayPal. When am I going to get my stuff?

We process orders daily with our partnering startups. You should hear from them within 3-5 business days, if not sooner.

Does my discount card expire?

Yes, it lasts for 3 months.

This thing doesn't work, can I get a refund?

Yes. Please contact the startup company first though, I'm sure they want to know. Then let us know.

Can I submit my startup to the next hug?

Sure. We’re open to considering new startups all the time. We do reserve the right to put the bundles together so there’s a good fit. You can contact us here.
