In the Silicon Valley, there are startup talents all over the place and yet startup recruits still have a hard time searching for talents. The same problem is occurring in Hong Kong’s startup scene.

8 out of 10 startups agree that even though talent is everywhere in Hong Kong, it has been extremely difficult for them to find the exact ones they need. Traditionally, Chinese parents always teach their kids to do good in school and then find a good and stable position at a big company. Then have kids, watch the kids grow and live a good and happy life. That is why there isn’t a lot of tech startups in Hong Kong since most people believe the money was at big companies, real estate, or finance.
The startup scene in Hong Kong have been improving over the years, but still has a long way to go. More and more investors are seeking to fund startups in Hong kong and these startup need talent. Startbase.HK is doing a good job providing assistance to the startup community, but startups will still need to work extremely hard to find the talents they want. The reason is because the bigger companies are offering stability, mentorship, a large salary, promotions, bonus, and a lot more than a regular startup can provide for them.
