Purpose

Glocal is the latest jargon to describe the adaptation of international products around the particularities of a local culture in which they are sold. The process of “Glocalization” allows integration of local markets into world markets.


Overview

The campaign will commence in June with an opening ceremony aimed to attract a series of entrepreneurs that have the ambition to expand globally to join the competition. Competitors will go through a series of activities such as Global Entrepreneur Forum, Inter Cultural Exchange Program and company visits of Multi National Corporation to inspire them business ideas. Towards the end of the campaign, competitors will be asked to pitch their ideas on a panel of judges to see if these ideas are able to transcend towards the global market and while still able to adapt to the targeted local communities. In particular, we planned to conduct a startup weekend competition that allows the participants to pitch an idea inspired from Hong Kong’s local business/idea/process that proves able to expand globally by catering foreign needs.


Results

Glocal Startup Mission is an initiative by JCI Lantau. Its aim is to provide young entreprenuers the global vision that can be reflected onto their local actions. This year, we implemented this initiative in the form of a startup competition. As such, on 12 Aug 2017, we have our Finals Judging Day and that we have reputable judges to help judge our competitors. Thank you judges Mr Spencer Li, Mr Teddy Lui, Mr Alvin Au Yeung and Mr Gerald Ng to be able to offer their time to judge our finalist and Mr Avery Lo and Mr Brian Hui for their sharing on the Global Entreprenuer Forum.


Recommendations

It is recommnded to hold a regular similar international event at similar time of every year by JCI Lantau.
