Product Hunt: Hong Kong Meetup

8th Sep 2015


Come one, come all! 
Xpand will be hosting the next Product Hunt meetup in Hong Kong. 

The event will take place on Thursday, September 24th on the 21st floor of The Hive in Wan Chai from 7-9pm.  

What is Product Hunt?

Product Hunt is a website and iOS app that lets users share and discover new products. The site, which was founded by Ryan Hoover in November of 2013 and is backed by Y Combinator, Google Ventures, Andreessen Horowitz, and other notable Silicon Valley angel investors.  

Product Hunters all over the world have been hosting meetups, bringing like-minded people together.  San Francisco has hosted multiple events with more than 1000 attendees in the past.

The aim of this event is to get a supportive group together in Hong Kong to build meaningful bonds.   It will be a great time to find out more information about the brief history of the Product Hunt platform and how best to use it to discover great new products. 

We will bring together intelligent, hardworking, thoughtful, friendly people to foster a collaborative environment in Hong Kong.  For the curious, we put together a few helpful links below to give you some context about what all the fuss is about.

We see this as a gathering of friends who we may not have met yet, so we encourage you to bring some things to share with others, whether that's beers, company swag like stickers, or something cool to show off, like Oculus Rift. It's going to be a great night and we look forward to seeing you all there!
