Swire Properties Accelerator 10 New Tech Startups
Swire Properties Accelerator, blueprint, today announced the names of the new tech startups selected to join its popular accelerator programme backed.
The ten successful tech startups and their business-to-business (B2B) solutions have been selected for their concepts that span a wide spectrum ranging from a social shopping network, e-commerce analytics tool, to a sourcing platform for the heavy industry and online library for architects and interior designers. Each startup will enjoy six months of free workspace, mentorship support, connections to capital and market testing opportunities to elevate their business. Distinguishing itself from other incubator programmes in the region, blueprint’s approach remains unique in that it does not request equity in return for its assistance.

“The new batch of startups delivers solutions that are innovative in concept and help fill the gaps in the market. We are pleased to offer support leveraging our existing business resources for the gain of our startups, which also allows us to stay close to innovation and promote developments that could provide us with a competitive advantage in the future,” said Swire Properties’ Director of Offices, Don Taylor.
Blueprint’s successes can be seen in the connections between startups and Swire Properties, who have adopted business solutions delivered by graduates of the blueprint programme. “We’ve seen everything from inspection management software introduced onto Swire Properties’ construction sites to a smart mirror display which will soon capture the imagination of diners at one of our restaurants,” added Taylor.
The ten successful startups participating in blueprint’s third round of acceleration moved their businesses into blueprint’s tech hub in Taikoo Place in late January. In the weeks to come, Seedcamp, the First Round Fund backing ambitious startups, will visit Hong Kong as part of an ongoing partnership with blueprint, and deliver intensive training to the new blueprint startups during their first month of acceleration.
