“The problems that are hindering the development of innovation and technology in Hong Kong are talent shortage and small market scope,” Kenneth Chau, President of Technology Incubation Network, said.

Chau thought that more young people would choose to study the subjects related to innovation and technology in recent years. The number of talents increases so the problem of talent shortage would be eased in the future.

Nonetheless, the main problem in the development of innovation and technology is the Hong Kong market scope is too small. The total population of Hong Kong is around seven million.

“Obviously, the potential of the Hong Kong market is not comparable to that of Mainland China market,” Chau said, in the General Assembly at Hong Kong Shue Yan University.

However, Chau believed Hong Kong could be the ‘Market Model’ in the industry of innovation and technology. With the small market scope, Hong Kong is suitable to be a test field for testing the market response of new innovation and technology scheme. Thus, the scheme could be adjusted and improved according to the market response.

“If an innovation and technology scheme wants to enter the Mainland China market, it still needs the experience and data of the Hong Kong market,” Chau said.

Chau thought that a successful innovator should have courage and insight and good at analyzing the market dynamic. Chau took his project ‘Karaoke mics for home’ as an example. When iPhone 4 was released and ‘Karaoke mics’ were very popular, he made a bulk purchase due to the huge demand. After iPhone 5 was released, the ‘Karaoke mic’ is incompatible to the system of iPhone 5. The purchased ‘Karaoke mics’ were outdated. Chau lost more than one million dollars in this ‘Karaoke mic’ project.

“If you want to start an innovation and technology business, you must have the ability in analyzing the market dynamic and the trend in the future,” Chau said.
