Technology is changing so fast and increasingly disrupts industries that felt safe and protected a few years ago,” says Paul Niel, a social entrepreneur and co-founder of Peared, a lifestyle company for the elderly, and Luxarity, an enterprise that resells luxury fashion to raise money for charity. “We see massive changes in manufacturing, healthcare, and now also in the financial industry – one of the cornerstones of Hong Kong’s economy. It’s important not just for the entrepreneur community but also for business to be aware of these changes and how we can prepare ourselves.
