The 2016 EYE Program Teams Announced
The EYE Program, powered by Google and supported by leading corporations, announced the top 15 teams who will work closely with the program’s Corporate Partners, including Asia Miles, HKT, and New World Development Company Limited, to co-create products and solutions related to lifestyle loyalty programs, information and communications technology (ICT), and smart living. Themed “Innovation in Everyday Life,” the EYE Program aims to drive “Collaborative Innovation” across industries by connecting leading corporations and startups. This year, the program received over 250 applications. Thirty teams were invited to the Pitching Day hosted at HKT on June 25, and they each presented their business ideas to the judging panel composed of 17 professionals, executives and entrepreneurs. The top 15 teams were selected and will receive dedicated mentorship, participation in Innovation Boost workshop and training, as well as Insight Nights hosted by the program’s Corporate Partners. The teams will also pitch for the top six spots on August 20, and receive opportunities to shadow innovative leaders and showcase their business solutions during a visit to Singapore in September and Gala Event in October.
