Open Innovation is a key for long-term organisational success. By partnering with the world’s leading technology organisations and entrepreneurs, HSBC is reshaping banking, creating new customer value and growth opportunities.

In this spirit, HSBC Ventures, Innovation and Partnerships is excited to announce the launch of the Entrepreneur-in-Residence program – a seven month full-time paid residency designed to create a unique opportunity to shape ideas into world-class solutions.
