Alibaba Entrepreneurs Fund/HSBC JUMPSTARTER 2020 Global Pitch Competition Grand Finale Announces Top Five Winners

4:03 am ET February 13, 2020 (BusinessWire) Print

The Alibaba Entrepreneurs Fund/HSBC JUMPSTARTER 2020 Global Pitch Competition Grand Finale today announced the top five winners at the close of the two-day event with 20,000 fans and supporters from 100 countries and regions participated online.

During the Feb. 11-12 event, 40 finalists from eight semifinal pitch competitions battled for the five top slots. After an online roadshow of nearly 400 minutes and a live Q&A with a panel of judges, Asia Regenerative Medicine, Ecoinno, Fano Labs, Snipfeed and The Block Ledger were named as winners. Up to a total US$5 million investment commitments, as well as a total cash prize of US$100,000 will be shared among the five winners. They will also have a chance to connect with the Alibaba ecosystem.

"Despite the various challenges the world is facing, including the novel coronavirus and geopolitics, an entrepreneurial spirit is one that will never give up. We should all stay committed to the values we believe in as we continue towards our mission and vision. Entrepreneurs also need to hire good people and work with talent to achieve sustainable development, which is a crucial step for startups to achieve their dreams," Executive Vice Chairman of Alibaba Group and Director of Alibaba Entrepreneurs Fund, Joe Tsai, told webcast viewers.

"With the support of different partners, we are delighted that JUMPSTARTER 2020 was hosted online successfully. The finalists came from over 10 countries and regions, and they had outstanding performance, showcasing forward-looking ideas to address market needs. I hope that all participants in JUMPSTARTER 2020 can benefit from the process and gain useful experience that can help them achieve their entrepreneurial dreams," said Executive Director of the Alibaba Hong Kong Entrepreneurs Fund, Cindy Chow.

"JUMPSTARTER 2020 is an excellent showcase of international entrepreneurial talent and serves as an insightful eye to the future. Here we see not only promising start-ups but also game changers who are passionate about creating a better future. HSBC is committed to supporting new and small businesses of all types. As the event's title sponsor, we look forward to seeing how these ideas could make a positive impact on societies, as well as bringing their ideas to life to serve the needs of a changing world," said Terence Chiu, Head of Commercial Banking, Hong Kong, HSBC.

JUMPSTARTER 2020 judges said they were impressed by the overall standards this year. The top five startups displayed innovative ideas unseen in the market before and clearly showcased sustainable business models. They were also able to solve key pain points with their technologies. The judges said they were glad to see the winning teams were spread over the competition's main areas of focus, including deep tech, fintech, retail and smart cities. The judges also encouraged the startups to embrace their entrepreneurial ambitions and continue to use technology to solve problems to make the world better.

Due to the outbreak of the coronavirus, the health of JUMPSTARTER participants was of paramount importance this year. Adhering to a spirit of entrepreneurship and resilience, the Alibaba Hong Kong Entrepreneurs Fund successfully moved the JUMPSTARTER 2020 Global Pitch Competition Grand Finale from its offline venue to an online setting. In the process, it became the world's largest online startup competition (see appendix below for details) in just 10 days.

This spirit of supporting startups was well-received. In addition to the Directors of Alibaba Entrepreneurs Fund and professional investment fund Gobi Partners, the event's title sponsor HSBC, co-organizers Hong Kong Cyberport Management Company Limited and Hong Kong Science and Technology Park Corporation, as well as other collaboration partners including CLP Holdings Limited, 3 Hong Kong, Deloitte, Alibaba Cloud and successful startups from overseas and Hong Kong all took part in the event. By serving on the panel of judges, recording videos in which they shared their evaluation of competitors, and participating in live chats online, they were able to show unwavering support for the startups.
