An international seminar focused on start-ups and information technology, dubbed f.ounders, was held in Macao from 12 to 14 July 2018. It attracted approximately 180 IT companies from different regions in Asia, Europe and the Americas, many of which are internationally-renowned technology companies. Through symposiums, participants in the seminar shared experiences about starting up their businesses and discussed the future development of the industry. This year’s f.ounders seminar designed interactive sessions specifically for Macao enterprises. As a co-operating organisation, the Macao Trade and Investment Promotion Institute (IPIM) encouraged local start-ups and IT companies to take part in the seminar, in order for them to enhance the communication and co-operation with other local companies and globally-renowned enterprises.
