Local green tech startup won the Elevator Pitch Competition

Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation (HKSTP) held its annual Elevator Pitch Competition 2021 (EPiC) on November 5 in hybrid format. This year over 600 startups around the world participated in the competition to deliver a signature 60-second elevator pitch, virtually or physically, to compete for the winning cash prize of US$100,000 as well as unique opportunities for cross-border investment, business collaboration and technology development and adoption.

Champion archiREEF restores degraded marine ecosystems

This year’s overall EPiC Champion, Winner of Green Tech & Construction Tech Category, as well as the “My Favourite Pitcher” award belong to Hong Kong-based archiREEF. The Greentech startup beat all other finalists with its innovative climate solutions and eco-engineering technology for ocean ecosystems restoration. The company combines expertise in marine biology and the latest technologies in 3D printing techniques and material science to create artificial habitats that are best suited for different marine life anywhere in the world.

EPiC is a week-long fest of pitching, investment and business matching. International participants have to grasp a one-minute elevator pitch opportunity to investors and judges in Hong Kong. The top ten finalists were given another opportunity to face the judges in a three-minute live pitch and two-minute Q&A. All winners from the competition can win a cash prize and proceed to leverage the full resources of the HKSTP ecosystem for investment, incubation, market access, technology, and partnership opportunities.
