Using the latest AI and machine learning technologies, the platform curates relevant content for users.

HSBC has earlier this week unveiled a beta version of HSBC VisionGo, a digital community platform designed to connect small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Hong Kong, empower them with timely business insights, and create a knowledge-sharing environment for likeminded entrepreneurs.

Non-HSBC customers are also welcome to sign up for the platform, which uses the latest artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning technologies to curate relevant content for users based on their preference and reading history.

Via the new platform, users will be able to access a growing database of resources across a wide spectrum of business related topics, such as finance, marketing, legal and technology. Nearly 500 original articles, contributed by entrepreneurs and industry professionals, are available on the platform from start.

Starting this week, SMEs can register for free webinars and online tutorials about the Special 100% Loan Guarantee under SFGS on HSBC VisionGo, saving them time and minimising the need for face-to-face meetings. Additional events will also be made available on the platform over time.

HSBC VisionGo connects SMEs and aims to help them explore business opportunities. Members can exchange ideas with like-minded peers through online consultation sessions and workshops. HSBC’s experts will also join these events to give participants the insights required to optimise and scale their businesses.
