Edventures GBA Fellowship

The Edventures GBA Fellowship is a Global Business Acceleration programme for education technology ventures. It also provides an opportunity for the Fellows to understand the market and business opportunities of the Greater Bay Area (GBA), Asia's Silicon Valley.


Through a blended programme of online activities and an all expenses-paid trip to the Greater Bay Area of China, the 12 selected fellows will be connected with potential investors, partners and customers in the education and corporate sectors in Asia and beyond. A highlight of the Fellowship is the Hong Kong Cyberport Venture Capital Forum (CVCF), where the 12 selected fellows can make their pitches on 4 Nov 2020 to judges, investors, educators and corporate audiences. The CVCF is the region's annual tech venture flagship event featuring an elite audience with 200+ investors and 200+ deal flows.


The Fellowship will also take the 12 finalists to visit three major cities in the GBA in 2021:


  • Hong Kong: the Greater Bay Area's leading hub for international finance, legal arbitration and professional services.
