The "CCG Accel - Powered by HKSTP" accelerator programme, launched by HKSTP and Chinachem Group (Chinachem), is transforming the property sector. It features unique pilot trials for tech ventures and corporations seeking to validate proptech innovation. 

The Cohort 1 & 2 Demo Day on 17 April 2023 showcased 12 market-ready solutions resulting from the pilot testing programme. Participating tech ventures completed trials of their innovative solutions at Chinachem Group’s nine designated commercial properties and collected front line users' feedback to validate their ideas. Instant user feedback was provided by Chinachem's professional team to strengthen market adoption opportunities. This closes the critical gap between ideation and commercialisation, proving HKSTP's Living Lab concept can translate R&D to market-ready solutions and expand I&T opportunities to other sectors and beyond borders. 

The Demo Day presented "Cohort 1 & 2 Tech Venture Stories", which demonstrate how these collaborations and market testing have led to rapid development of Hong Kong's proptech industry, to fast-track property sector transformation with the innovations developed.
