Wise Business 2017

Turning gamers’ needs into new eSports opportunities

Wise Business

"Wise Business 2017" is a multi-media knowledge sharing programme for businesses in Hong Kong. This year at HSBC Commercial Banking, we are continuing our partnership with the Hong Kong Productivity Council to present a new series of TV infomercials, an SME Summit, seminars and free consultation services. By featuring interviews with successful entrepreneurs in Hong Kong and overseas in the programme, we further explore how "innovation" and "transformation" help entrepreneurs capture new opportunities.

With image recognition technology, the platform allows consumers to search the matching or similar items from more than 5 million fashion pieces just by uploading an image of their favourite outfit, and process transactions all in one go.

Due to the aging population in Hong Kong, the healthcare products market has recorded a significant growth in recent years. Seeing the opportunity, Jess made use of the experience from his family-run ginseng business to launch a ginseng bottled drink. Rebranded with trendy packaging, the traditional product successfully entered the youth market.

Watches Industry

Hong Kong has been a renowned watches manufacturing base since the 1930s, and remains the leading exporter of watches in the world. To stand out in the crowd of sophisticated competitors, the founder of EONIQ came up with an online customisation platform which allows users to design their own watch. Within 2 years, EONIQ not only expanded their retail space from online to offline, but also took their business from local to overseas.
