Comments Off, 16/06/2014, by , in Local Startup News

Talent Unleashed has released their 2014 shortlist with 13 out of the 15 companies in Central Asia being based in Hong Kong. This does nothing but further illustrate how Hong Kong is the capital for successful startups with great potential.

Richard Earl, Founder and Managing Director of Talent International believes that “finding and placing great talent is only half the story. The other half is about discovering individuals who have the potential to change the world. And while that doesn’t fit within the traditional narrative of a recruitment agency, that doesn’t bother us. For us, it’s all about applauding those game-changing ideas that have the power to transform lives and businesses.”

The Talent Unleashed Award was created because its founders are passionate about the technology industry, and they are big supporters of people who work in it. Through technology they see a huge potential to revolutionize the industry and drive innovation across all sectors, from finance, telecommunications, and mining the resources through to health, agriculture and logistics. For them the growth of the technological sectors is linked to the future prosperity of our world.
