Nest is structured to deliver both financial backing, branding, sales and marketing support to enable the city's entrepreneurs to build their businesses and develop new, iconic Hong Kong brands.

“I’ve met many talented Hong Kong-based entrepreneurs with great ideas in the last decade,
but noticed that there are very few avenues of support, not just financially, but in terms of
business consultancy advice and brand marketing, open to them,” said Squibb.

Squibb started Fluid 10 years ago at the age of 26. His experience has inspired him to form the investment venture. 

"I relied on more experienced individuals willing to take not only financial risk, but also provide business advice. Now I'm in the positon to give back, I want to establish a platform that provides capital and expertise needed to grow a good idea into a great scaleable business," he said.
