NotCentralised Hong Kong An Epicentre for APAC Innovations

The journey of innovation is unending, and at NotCentralised, we believe in marking milestones that redefine the landscape of commerce and tech. With immense pride and exhilaration, we announce the latest extension of our family — a dynamic office right in the heart of Hong Kong.

Hong Kong, known for its spectacular skyline and bustling port, is a melting pot of culture, technology, and commerce. By planting our roots here, we’re not just opening doors to new opportunities but also embracing a vision that’s bigger than us. It’s about connecting APAC like never before, and fortifying its position on the global commerce map. This isn’t just a new office, it’s a statement of our commitment and ambition to be the torchbearers of tech-forward change in the region.

Our Hong Kong haven isn’t just walls and desks. It’s a think tank, an innovation hub, and a testament to our relentless drive to push the boundaries of what’s possible. We’re already hard at work, and as always, we’re ready to take on challenges, break barriers, and set new benchmarks.

To our clients, partners, and the incredible community that has supported our journey thus far: this is just the beginning. Watch this space because the best is yet to come.
