Technology Voucher Programme (TVP)
TVP was launched by the Innovation and Technology Commission (ITC) in November 2016 on a pilot basis with the aims to subsidize local small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in using technological services and solutions to improve productivity, upgrade or transform their business processes.
The program has now been incorporated into the constant funding scheme of the Innovation and Technology Fund, with the amount of funding ceiling per applicant being increased to HK$600,000 and the eligibility of the program expanded to cover all non-listed local enterprises of all sizes instead of just SMEs only.
