HONG KONG, May 18, 2018 - (ACN Newswire) - Blockchain technology is sweeping the globe and industries, hence driving companies and entrepreneurs to join the revolution.

"China does not only play an active role in the global venture communities. She is also one of the largest countries for blockchain adoption. In the past few years, I have been working closely with angel investors and ventures on different startup projects, and found that many good ideas lost their brightness after few years, as they could not match with quality capital and resources. Our vision is to nurture technology startups and match them with our global networks.

"Being a Hong Kong based project, we are dedicated to connecting Asian projects with global funding, resources & talents. With blockchain technology, our platform will provide projects and investors with transparent, credible and accurate information," Ric Wu, Founder of SmartUp, commented on Chinese President Xi JinPing's recent supportive statement on nurturing Hong Kong as an international technology innovation hub to achieve China's innovation-driven development strategy.

Ric served as management in different global financial institutions and has extensive experience in international capital operations and overseas listings for Chinese companies; Mr. Chris Yuan, former CTO of Hong Kong famous online freight logistics platform GoGoVan will be the CTO of SmartUp. Besides the core team, global professionals also showed their support and formed the consulting team, including Mr. Ricky Ng, Co-Founder of iClick Interactive, one of the largest digital advertising platforms in Greater China. Besides Ricky, other consulting team members came across from international firms like PWC & The Boston Consulting Group and served as venture capital consultants in Korea, China & Japan.

More and more international professional service providers including Flag Point Business School, a certificated business school by the China Communication Industry Association Professional Committee of Blockchain (CCIAPCB); Across Asia Communications Limited, an award winning PR agency dedicated to nurture startups; L&Y Law Office, a law firm proficient in IPO, merge & acquisition, private equity investment and finance; ALE&CO, a professional accounting firm with expertise in China GAAP & IFRS joined SmartUp ecosystem as co-workers and willing to accept SIT tokens for their professional fees to incubate blockchain projects smoothly.
