Organiser Tabitha Logan commented: “We want to become the go-to platform for the industry to collaborate and innovate with industry players and innovators.”

This year’s diverse range of finalists are Chinese magnetic robot firm Bingoo Robot, drag reduction specialists 13 Mari, carbon emissions tracker Everimpact, fuel catalyst firm Steele Environmental, behavioural-based safety company Sol-X, mental health platform OK Positive, regulatory adviser DanCompliance, and eyeGauge, a digital twin expert.

The winner stands to win $25,000 and have access to 12 months of free legal support from HFW, social media support and business introductions from Lloyd’s Register, business coaching from HFW Consulting and fundraising advice from Betatron Venture Group.

Splash will be streaming the finals live from Hong Kong tomorrow starting from 4.00 pm local time (0.800 GMT).
