HONG KONG

Once a British fishing and farming colony, Hong Kong quickly emerged as one of the world’s most important financial centers. With a sprawling modern skyline carved out of mountains overlooking the ocean, Hong Kong offers an incredible environment for interns and students. Although it sits on China’s doorstep, and acts as the doorway for access to the Chinese mainland, Hong Kong’s British influence easily accommodates English-speaking foreigners. Hong Kong's startup scene is gaining immense traction.

A study done last year by Google and CUHK's Center for Entrepreneurship show that the startup scene in Hong Kong has grown 300% since 2009, and an influx of tech hubs have been essential to its growth. With new co-working spaces, accelerators and incubators, Sage Corps Fellows who choose to spend a term in Hong Kong will expose themselves to a vibrant and emerging startup ecosystem. While in Hong Kong, Fellows are matched with rising startups and take on incredible opportunities rarely offered to college students anywhere else. Fellows arrive in Hong Kong as an intern/co-worker, but leave as a global entrepreneur.
