With Hong Kong’s cultural and financial links around the world, and its ties to the manufacturing powerhouse of mainland China, there is ample opportunity for SMEs to expand and prosper. Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) form the backbone of Hong Kong’s economy. There were approximately 340,000 SMEs in Hong Kong in 2018, (of which 2800+ were startups) and these ventures by SMEs represent more than 98 percent of the city’s businesses. As Hong Kong's biggest community builder, WHub understands the common pain points SMEs face and with over 6 years of experience in the field, we have the best solutions to offer you.
