"Hong Kong is a critical market for us and plays a key role in our expansion into the rest of Asia. Meeting Joseph Jeong and hearing about the team made the choice to sponsor very easy. It is a fun way for us to gain more visibility in the Hong Kong FinTech community, and we are delighted with the success of the team."
