It is becoming more widely understood that within the next decade many of the jobs we take for granted will be automated by machines. Perhaps not machines in the Hollywood robot sense, but algorithms written in code and machines that detect patterns in the ways things can be done most optimally.
Can parts of your job be automated? Perhaps you are already struggling to find new opportunities for growth as the ceiling becomes lower.
Are you the manager of a team that is not performing at their peak and want to know what training would 10x them?
We get it: Learning new tech can be intimidating, but almost anyone can do it. Trust us.
This event serves to show a very practical waypoint for people in Hong Kong of all backgrounds, ethnicities and industries to get ahead with in-demand skills in tech, including:
To put it simply, Hong Kong is hungry for home-grown tech talent and people in Hong Kong are hungry for opportunities to grow and lead fulfilling careers. This is your chance to help solve that problem and we will paint a clear picture, from how to get started as an absolute beginner to where you can find job opportunities in the market.
We will also briefly touch upon our Future Education Foundation scholarship: MindWorks Ventures and Xccelerate are delighted to fund a combined HK$300,000 to fully sponsor six selected underprivileged individuals to complete Xccelerate’s flagship 16-week Immersive Software Engineering bootcamp and assist with job and apprenticeship placement post graduation.
Don’t think you have what it takes to get into tech? Come find out for yourself and ask questions during the Q&A.
The event will be in English and supplemented in Cantonese.
