HKETONY Director meets Chicago business contacts, rings in Chinese New Year with squash players

The HKETO Spring Reception in Chicago celebrating the Year of the Dog (Feb 20) included some very special guests this year as elite squash players from Hong Kong, Annie Au, Leo Au, Joey Chan, Max Lee, Yip Tsz Fung, and coach Faheem Khan made an appearance ahead of their appearance in the Windy City Open. The event came on the heels of the exciting win by Max Lee, currently ranked No 29 in the world, who defeated Australian Ryan Cuskelly for the 2018 Canada Cup trophy by a 3-1 margin (Feb 15). They joined in on a toast to the bright year up ahead with HKETONY Director Joanne Chu.

Earlier in the day, Director Chu met with Tom Bartkoski, Director of International Business Development at World Business Chicago, and Abin Kuriakose, Program Manager of ChicagoNEXT, WBC. Chu discussed with them ChicagoNext's work in identifying venture capital investments in Chicago startups, their focus on Fintech and cyber security sectors for growth, and potential further interactions between Hong Kong and Chicago startups and universities.
