Last week I was invited by The Nordic Chambers Of Commerce to share my view on business and innovation in Hong Kong to a mixed audience of executives. Hosted by KPMG I shared the stage with James McKeogh, principal advisory at KPMG and Stuart Patton director at SongHi.
“ Johan Persson is a very devoted and competent speaker who delivered an outstanding talk on how to turn innovation into business in Hong Kong, at The Hub. Who cannot feel inspired by his knowledge and positive spirit with regards to Hong Kong as the best place to set up business.”
Eva Karlberg, GM – Swedish Chamber of Commerce

Though out the past moths C’monde has together with our client Vigil been working with biometric data sensors for the age care services market. Statistics from New Zealand projects the population aged 65 and over to grow to over 1,000,000 by 2031. The consequential pressure on health services will be profound unless we change the way we deliver care.
We are proud that our design solution awakened the interest of BUPA Australasia, a part of the BUPA International Healthcare Group who serves 22 million customers globally, generating revenues of about USD 15 billion. They will partner with Vigil and invest $5 million investment in exchange for a 25 per cent stake in the business.
Spark Ventures CEO Rod Snodgrass agrees that this opportunity was too good to pass up.
“The demand for smarter digital health solutions will only grow as the population ages. Vigil offers medical monitoring solutions using digital technologies with many applications and with global potential. The addition of the global muscle and capability of Bupa will help realise that.”
We hope we can show you product renderings of this cooperation publicly very soon!

Here is a list of the city’s most celebrated contemporary product designers.

This year have been extra busy, topping up all fun work and projects, with re-locating our office to a new location. We are now finally getting settled and back to normal pace at Hong Kong’s creative hub PMQ – an exiting building filled with history and thriving with creativity that we are very happy to be part of.
The PMQ project was born in 2009 from an initiative of the Development Bureau to preserve the former Police Married Quarters. The Musketeers Foundation, with the support of Hong Kong Design Centre, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and Hong Kong Design Institute of the Vocational Training Council, was assigned the task to transform the site into a premier landmark showcasing the best of Hong Kong’s creative industry.
In the beginning of this year, 2014, we finally moved in. After being carefully reviewed, passing interviews and screenings, here we are: in the middle of the creative and inspiring environment of design offices, pop up stores, happenings and events. PMQ is open for everyone and acts like a event space and houses a range of design studios, cafes and small stores to visit.
You´ll find us in block A, floor 6, room 608. Look for me.u earphones in the window.
