Event to Support Start-ups Opens Next Friday in Hong Kong; Survey Report on InnoTech Start-ups For those dreaming of starting their own business, a source of support and inspiration gets underway 19-20 May at the ninth Entrepreneur Day, organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC). The event at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre will feature the largest number of exhibitors yet, and will provide aspiring businesspeople a one-stop platform to learn about opportunities, market intelligence and start-up support services. Exhibitions, seminars, forums and pitching sessions are planned for the event which is open to the public with free admission. Speaking about this year's Entrepreneur Day, HKTDC Assistant Executive Director Stephen Liang offered details about what visitors can expect from the HKTDC's flagship event for entrepreneurs. "The two-day event this year features a record of more than 270 exhibitors from different sectors. The HKTDC hopes that the event's focus on three critical factors - creativity, capital and connections - can help new businesses develop and promote entrepreneurship." Sharing creativity Since successful entrepreneurship requires creativity, Entrepreneur Day will this year feature a new exhibition zone called The Imaginarium. The zone will gather over 50 start-ups to showcase innovative products and technologies in fields such as health technology and biotechnology, FinTech, greentech, the IoT (Internet of Things), artificial and augmented reality (AR/VR), artificial intelligence (AI) as well as robotics. In the zone, innovators from various sectors can exchange ideas and inspire fresh thinking and new outcomes. "Vision Explorer: Venturing into the Future" is the theme of this year's two-day Start-up Runway forum. On the first day, entrepreneurship experiences will be shared by WeLab Holdings' Co-founder Simon Loong, Tink Labs Limited Co-founder Terence Kwok and logistics-industry rising star Lalamove founder Shing Chow. Two start-ups - one offering travel supplies rental services in a sharing economy concept and another a mobile chatbot using artificial intelligence to provide on-the-go travel information - are set to speak at the TravelTech forum. The HKTDC has invited travel writer James Hong to moderate the forum. Other seminars will examine a range of topics including technology trends and start-up opportunities in areas such as in FinTech and AI as well as keys to successful funding. Venture capital to help start-ups grow For good ideas to grow, capital support is also essential - and for start-ups that need help on pitching as a way to seek funding, this year's event will feature a Pitchathon. Involving organisations including StartHub, Hong Kong Startup Council and Cocoon, Pitchathon is designed to help start-ups pursue incubator support and hone their fundraising skills. Participating start-ups can also compete for a chance to secure angel funding. Building connections Another indispensable component of entrepreneurship is the process of making connections, so to help start-ups expand their networks the HKTDC is working with the Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups to co-organise the Start-up Mixer. The event allows start-ups to interact with people from different industries and with investors and receive feedback from experts. Co-organised with Startup Weekend Hong Kong, the Startup Weekend Hong Kong Bootcamp is being organised to allow fledgling entrepreneurs to compete and brainstorm with others. Another new event, The Pioneer Meetup offers aspiring businesspeople a forum to exchange ideas with young leaders and successful entrepreneurs. An event for start-ups to hire staff, Start-ups Meet Talent, is being organised with W-Hub, and finally the Fund & Mentor event offers a platform for start-ups to explore cooperation with potential investors. Report on the Study of Innovative Technology Start-ups in Hong Kong The HKTDC's Research Team has released a report on innovative technology employed by start-ups. HKTDC Economist Wenda Ma said core technologies developed or applied by nearly half of the start-ups surveyed were Software/App/Information Communications and Technology (ICT) (47%), followed by Hardware/Electronics/Internet of Things (IoT)/Wearables (22%). In terms of industries/sectors of applications, the results were more evenly spread, with the top five industries/sectors being Retailing, Advertising, Marketing & E-commerce (21%), ICT/Telecommunications (21%), Media, Entertainment & Gaming (18%), Smart Home/Smart City (16%) and Consumer Electronics (15%). Regarding markets where companies currently operate, the survey found the top three were Hong Kong (87%), the Chinese mainland (36%), and the Americas and Canada (27%). The top three potential markets identified were the Chinese mainland (56%), Taiwan (49%) and the Americas and Canada (41%). The survey also found that compared with traditional businesses, the new generation of businesses are generally focused on multi-industry applications and solutions as well as mass customisation of personalised products. They also were looking for scalable and disruptive business models, and place an emphasis on value-creation as well as adopt an autonomous and flexible work culture. Start-ups at different stages of development also face a range of challenges according to the study. At the early and/or concept-development stage, the biggest challenges were identified as access to funding/financing (57%), customer scepticism with regard to new products/services (43%) and to start-ups overall (43%). At the prototype and/or testing stage, the problems companies said they need to tackle included access to funding/financing (69%), hiring and retaining talent (47%) and commercialisation of existing technology (44%). As start-ups reach the market launch stage, they saw their top three challenges as access to funding/financing (58%), overseas expansion (50%) and customer scepticism with regard to new products/services (44%). When start-ups reach the growth/expansion stage, access to funding/financing (58%), overseas expansion (42%) and hiring and retaining Talent (42%) are seen as the biggest hurdles. Summary of Survey Results: More than 30 face-to-face interviews with start-ups and supporters were conducted and 180 survey responses from start-ups were obtained. - Start-up Trends* Core Technology Developed or Applied Software/App/Information Communications & Technology (ICT) 47% Hardware/Electronics/Internet of Things (IoT)/Wearables 22% Data Analytics/Informatics 9% Industries/Sectors of Applications Retailing, Advertising, Marketing & E-commerce 21% ICT/Telecommunications 21% Media, Entertainment & Gaming 18% Smart Home/Smart City 16% Consumer Electronics 15% - Challenges Faced by Start-ups at Different Stages* (1) Early and/or Concept Development Stage Access to Funding/Financing 57% Customer scepticism with regard to New Products/Services 43% Customer scepticism with regard to Start-ups Overall 43% (2) Prototype and/or Testing Stage Access to Funding/Financing 69% Hiring and Retaining Talent 47% Commercialisation of existing technology 44% (3) Market Launch Stage Access to Funding/Financing 58% Overseas expansion 50% Customer scepticism with regard to New Products/Services 44% (4) Growth/Expansion Stage Access to Funding/Financing 58% Overseas Expansion 42% Hiring and Retaining Talent 42% - Start-ups' Current Markets* Hong Kong 87% Chinese mainland 36% Americas and Canada 27% - Start-ups' Potential Markets* Chinese mainland 56% Taiwan 49% Americas and Canada 41% *Multiple Selections allowed HKTDC Entrepreneur Day (Open to Public, Free Admission) Dates and Opening Hours: 19 May (Fri) 10:30am - 6:30pm; 20 May (Sat) 10:00am - 6:00pm Venue: Hall 1, Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre Website: www.hktdc.com/eday Survey Result: http://bit.ly/2pUMd2i Photo Download: http://bit.ly/2qRU6Tn To view press releases in Chinese, please visit http://mediaroom.hktdc.com/tc (Photo:) HKTDC Assistant Executive Director Stephen Liang says this year's Entrepreneur Day will focus on creativity, capital and connections to help aspiring entrepreneurs develop their businesses.

A NIMS research team led by Yoshimi Kubo and Akihiro Nomura, team leader and researcher, respectively, Lithium Air Battery Specially Promoted Research Team, C4GR-GREEN, developed lithium-air batteries with very high electric storage capacity15 times greater than the capacity of conventional lithium-ion batteries using carbon nanotubes (CNT) as an air electrode material. Demand for rechargeable batteries is expected to increase rapidly as electric vehicle power sources and joint sources of household electricity with solar cells. The current lithium-ion batteries have advantages of being compact, producing high voltages, and having long life, but they also have an issue in that their energy densities, which represent electric storage capacities, have nearly reached a limit. Lithium-air batteries have great potential in overcoming this issue. The lithium-air battery is the "ultimate rechargeable battery" with the highest energy density in theory. The battery may have drastically large capacity and reduce production cost. However, conventional battery research usually focuses on basic studies of battery reactions using small amounts of materials, and therefore is not designed to demonstrate large battery capacities using cells of actual size and shape. The research team recently achieved very high electric storage capacity of 30 mAh/cm2 using realistic cell forms. This value represents about 15 times greater capacity compared to the capacity of conventional lithium-ion batteries (about 2 mAh/cm2). This achievement was made by using CNTs as an air electrode material and thereby optimizing the electrode's microstructure. We think that the battery's large capacity can be attributed to CNTs' large surface area and flexible structure. It is unlikely that existing knowledge can explain the capacity increase seen in this study, and these findings may stimulate discussion over lithium-air battery reaction mechanisms. In light of these results, we aim to develop genuinely high-capacity lithium-air batteries at the practical level by exploring techniques to increase energy density in cell layers, called a stack, and remove impurities from the air This study was supported by JST's ALCA-SPRING program, and conducted in conjunction with the MEXT-commissioned projects titled "Development of environmental technology using nanotechnology" (until FY2015) and "Integrated materials development project" (from FY2016). In addition, a part of this study was supported by a FY2015 research grant from Iketani Science and Technology Foundation.

Women on Wall Street are just as connected as men, but their connections aren't as helpful to their career growth as they are for their male counterparts Male analysts gain more from their connections with executives at the companies they cover than their female counterparts, shows new research by INSEAD Associate Professor of Finance, Lily Fang. In her paper, "Gender and Connections among Wall Street Analysts", forthcoming in the Review of Financial Studies, she finds that women and men on Wall Street are just as connected as each other, but men are perceived to be better analysts because of their connections. She measured connections by analyzing alumni ties between the analysts and senior officers or board members. Women, like men, share a school tie with a senior officer or board member in about 25 percent of the firms they cover. But there is a big difference in how these connections help male and female analysts in their jobs. While connections improve forecast accuracy for both male and female analysts , the effect is stronger for males. These ties lead to a 2 percent improvement in rankings of accuracy in general, but there is a further improvement for men of 4 percent. This is because the market reacts more favourably to their buy and sell calls. Connections improve male analysts' recommendation impact by more than 1 percent, but not at all for female analysts. Fang also found that connections play a different role in male and female analysts' odds of being given the "All America Research Team" (AA) all-star title, which is awarded to those voted as top analysts by thousands of fund managers in an opinion poll organised by Institutional Investor magazine. The poll asks investors to evaluate analysts on industry knowledge, communication, responsiveness, quality of written reports and forecast accuracy. Analysts' career prospects can be massively impacted by the AA ranking, with winners of the titles earning around three times more than those without it. The results of the study show that while connections contribute to both men's and women's odds of success, they cause different outcomes when the analysts make forecast errors. For men for example, forecast errors reduce a male analyst's chance of winning the AA title, but the more connected he is, the less negative the effect of his errors is. For female analysts, connections actually accentuate rather than attenuate the effect of forecast errors. "We also show that the very different impact of connections on job performance was particularly pronounced among young analysts. This vastly different ability to capitalise on connections at such an early point in their career paths could explain gender gaps that exist throughout long-term career trajectories. The cycle, it seems, starts at the entry level," said Fang. Fang also showed that part of the difference in perceptions of male and female analysts lies in the fact that there are so few female officers and directors at the firms under coverage. While female analysts are not under-represented in the AA analyst pool, they had less female-female connections than the men had with other men. Fang observed that female analysts with a connection to a female executive at the firm under coverage reduced forecast errors by 3.8 percent and enhanced their recommendation impact by 0.7 percent. This compares to 2.1 percent when a female analyst is tied with a male executive. But again, male analysts benefit more from same-sex connections, with performance improvements nearly twice as large. Male-male connections were associated with a 7 percent reduction in forecast error and 1.1 percent increase in recommendation impact. "Thus the value of the "old boys club" is hard to refute in our data. We believe our work reveals the bittersweet reality of the decades-long effort in pushing for gender equality. On the one hand, we should celebrate the fact that outright gender discrimination in education, hiring and promotions are on the decline. On the other hand, the evidence clearly points to a more subtle--yet perhaps more insidious--form of gender bias: men and women may be evaluated using different criteria in our subjective minds," she added. As one of the world's leading and largest graduate business schools, INSEAD offers participants a truly global educational experience. With campuses in Europe (France), Asia (Singapore) and Middle East (Abu Dhabi), INSEAD's business education and research spans three continents.

GOTHENBURG, Sweden, May 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The number of serious road accidents involving trucks is dropping, but the safety of vulnerable road users must be improved. And there are still far too few truck drivers who use their seat belts. These are among the findings of a new traffic safety report from Volvo Trucks. To view the Multimedia News Release, please click: https://www.multivu.com/players/uk/8100751-volvo-trucks-safety-vulnerable-road-users/ "In the 2017 Volvo Trucks Safety Report we analyse and describe why accidents involving trucks occur, how they happen, and what should be done to reduce the risk of accidents and their consequences. These are facts that are not only important to our own product development but also to everyone who works for a safer traffic environment," says Peter Wells, head of the Volvo Trucks Accident Research Team. The 2017 Volvo Trucks Safety Report is based on Volvo's own accident investigations and on data from various national and European authorities. One of the report's conclusions is that there is a greater need to focus on reducing risks for vulnerable road users such as pedestrians, cyclists, moped riders and motorcyclists. "In the past decade the number of serious road accidents involving heavy trucks has been almost halved in Europe. However, truck accidents involving vulnerable road users have not been reduced to the same extent," says Carl Johan Almqvist, Traffic & Product Safety Director at Volvo Trucks. About 35 per cent of people suffering serious injuries or fatalities in accidents involving heavy trucks are vulnerable road users. With the increasing pace of urbanisation and with more people and vehicles on the roads, there is a risk that injuries will increase unless serious action is taken. "In order to cut accident rates it is necessary to continue the development of a number of technical solutions that can help the truck driver avoid potentially hazardous situations. Moreover, all road users need to become more aware of the risks that exist in the traffic environment and how we can best reduce them," explains Carl Johan Almqvist. Giving the driver a clear overview of the truck's immediate vicinity is crucial to accident prevention. As one of many complements to rear-view mirrors, close-quarter mirrors and reversing cameras, Volvo has a solution whereby the driver can see what is happening in the front corner of the passenger side with the help of a camera. "It is also important for pedestrians and cyclists to be aware of the importance to see and be seen and to assist in smooth, safe interaction in traffic. That's why we are directing our educational material to both youngsters and adults, for instance our Stop, Look, Wave and See and Be Seen campaigns, which spotlight precisely these issues," says Carl Johan Almqvist. In order to reduce the risk of accidents with other vehicles, Volvo's trucks are equipped with various active safety systems. But if an accident does occur, it is a tried and trusted part of the safety equipment that is the most important life-saver - the seat belt. "The report reveals that far too many truck drivers don´t use their seat belts even though we know that half of the unbelted truck drivers who have died in road accidents would have survived, had they been wearing their seat belts," says Carl Johan Almqvist. The 2017 Volvo Trucks Safety Report is the second externally published report from Volvo Trucks' Accident Research Team. "Cutting road accidents is an immensely important global issue. That's why we want to share our research results in a clear and easy to understand way," says Peter Wells. The 2017 Volvo Trucks Safety Report can be found in its entirety at volvotrucks.com ART has investigated and analysed road accidents involving trucks since 1969. For almost 50 years now ART's experience and expertise have formed the cornerstone of Volvo Trucks' drive to continuously improve its vehicles' accident-prevention and injury-prevention properties, making Volvo's trucks among the safest on the market.

The occurrence of ransomware in the cyber-crime arena has become disturbingly more common. In fact, the Total Defense Research Team has seen a 200% increase in ransomware infections in the last few months alone. This surge has even led to the FBI issuing a warning out of the Washington Field Office on the topic. Leveraging both system and human vulnerabilities, ransomware attackers are gaining access to machines and maliciously encrypting data and demanding a ransom paid to the creator of the malware in order for this data to be restored. Due to the fact that ransom must be paid in anonymous Bitcoin currency, this particular cybercrime is almost impossible to remedy once committed and has quickly become the method of choice for cyber smash-and-grab thieves. Consider a system that houses critical financial data, customer information, development code, or even simply important business documents and presentations. The inability to access those files, while initially a nuisance, could quickly escalate into a business catastrophe. While this may sound like a perfect attack method to enable large-scale financial pilfering and corporate espionage, this malware does not discriminate — the perpetrators are going forward with a dragnet type of approach, targeting any unsuspecting victim, regardless of company, role, or affiliation. In the corporate setting, this means all users are targets. But as large enterprises continue to invest in complex, multi-layered security in response to the daily onslaught of attacks like ransomware, the small and medium enterprise (SME) segment continues to be the weak and easy prey, the "soft targets" that attackers enjoy the most. Don't miss: IT Security in the Snowden Era (TechRepublic/ZDNet Special Feature) Many SMEs operate under a sense of denial when it comes to security — they consider themselves too small a target for would-be cyber attacks. When compounded with the fact that they often don't have a dedicated IT/security department, this creates a situation where assets and data are unduly put at risk. According to the Ponemon Institute (PDF), "The chances of an organization being hacked in a 12-month period is a statistical certainty and businesses of every type and sizes are vulnerable to attacks." It seems logical that your odds of being hacked increase as the breadth of your security decreases, which is often the situation SME's find themselves in. An attack on one SME might not deliver the same gains as a Fortune 500 financial services company, but given the greater ease through which hackers can attack SMEs, the volume-based approach employed by the cyber thieves highlights the risk to the lesser-protected. Given the continued blurring of the network perimeter with mobile devices traveling in and out of the corporate setting, what little protection that is provided often disappears the moment the device — most often a company-owned laptop or tablet — leaves the building. Mobile employees often connect to the Internet from a café, hotel, or airport Wi-Fi. Surfing the web or opening an email containing a malicious attachment, their machine can be inadvertently infected with ransomware (or any malware for that matter). Unaware of the infection, they bring the laptop back into the office, at which point the ransomware spiders out across all connected network drives and infects the entire network, putting the business at risk of catastrophic impact. As you can see from this all-too-real example, it really doesn't matter how much security technology the company has protecting its network: In today's world the endpoint device has become the weakest link in the perimeter — requiring a different approach to security. Traditional network-based security solutions such as firewalls, UTMs, and gateway filters are simply no longer sufficient protection in today's increasingly "perimeter-less" world. Today's business environment demands real-time protection that can keep users continuously protected, regardless of their location. This doesn't necessarily always mean costly, complex security. Thankfully for SMEs, there are innovative security solutions available that can be deployed via the cloud. As it has done for other IT functions, the cloud has created security advantages for organizations, especially for SMEs. These advantages include: While the recent spates of ransomware attacks don't necessarily target SMEs, they might be the most susceptible. However, they don't have to be.
