Known for its neon-lit skyscrapers, mirrored office towers and being densely populated, to me - being the co-founder of a truly independent boutique market research start up - Hong Kong is a city of opportunities.
With its distinctive blend of East meets West Hong Kong provides easy access to different cultures and nationalities, which for Radar Global is key. Complemented by a low tax environment and supportive government policies to stimulate and protect new businesses make it relatively easy and attractive to establish a company.
Although highly competitive, with a good and innovative business concept there are still plenty of niche opportunities across different industries to claim, develop and capitalize on.
Its sophisticated infrastructure, several innovative policies focusing on the development of IT, a hardworking, adaptable and well-educated workforce plus an entrepreneurial flair make Hong Kong's service industry a force to be reckoned with in the Asia Pacific Region.
Apart from being a great city to jumpstart your career or to establish your own company, Hong Kong is the epitome of work hard play hard. Although it's fast moving city, with beautiful beaches, great hiking, happening nightlife and top notch restaurants, it's a city where you can find your own pace.
