The Digital Economy Accelerator (DEA) is a 3-stage programme that empowers local designpreneurs to establish their digital presence to scale up their local businesses, as well as gaining insights and entrance to the Greater China and global markets. It also encourages greater innovation and collaboration in the community with a comprehensive network of leading digital experts and local designpreneurs from different disciplines.
Participating designpreneurs will get exclusive opportunities to learn from industry leaders and explore a wide range of business topics, such as digital entrepreneurship, digital marketing, and strategic business plan development. They will also have the chance to apply the knowledge they acquire to enhance their brand's presence in the digital landscape.
Launched by Hong Kong Design Centre and sponsored by Create Hong Kong of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (CreateHK), DEA offers professional training, mentorship, funding, and networking opportunities that aim to raise the benchmark of the local design industry with a digital focus.
