CoCoon is in the business of gathering vision, talent, experience and resources. At CoCoon, we are looking for individuals with unique talents such as: entrepreneurs, innovators, designers, engineers, experienced leaders and investors to explore opportunities together to turn ideas into reality. Bringing together different forces, we strive to enable members to get access to complementary partners. Beyond our broad spectrum of ventures, we hold one common thread together: to work and contribute to society and change the world.
Who we are:
We have been entrepreneurs for three generations. We are true entrepreneurs – the types of people who love to: dream up ideas that people would call “impossible”, form teams of people who believe in our “crazy” ideas and embark on journeys with no paths or maps by predecessors. This is why we believe in fellow entrepreneurs who have the purpose and drive to realize their beliefs and potentials.
What we believe:
We built CoCoon because we believe that entrepreneurs are the key to enable existing businesses a bridge to innovation, evolution, survival and delivering value to society. A society with thriving businesses enables good jobs, self-actualization, prosperity and peace.
What we do:
We are in the business to invest in entrepreneurs. We invest in building networks for entrepreneurs to reach the right people. We invest in youth to introduce entrepreneurship as a lifeskill to them early on in life. We invest in new economies to enable businesses to evolve, grow and prosper. Ultimately, we invest in people who can together grow a productive and peaceful society.
We are on a quest to reignite the entrepreneurial spirit in Hong Kong and be a world class entrepreneurship hub at the cutting edge internationally in community building, entrepreneurship education and early stage investments. We strive to build an environment in which members will experience a metamorphosis where their ideas and abilities will meet people and opportunities and transform into success stories, just as a caterpillar transforms into a butterfly via its cocoon.
