Ricardo and his project Gather Up –the winner of Startup Salad Hong Kong July 2015

GatherUp is a cross-platform App, which adds media streaming together with chatting. With GatherUp, friends can listen to music and watch videos together in real-time, through a collaborative radio experience.


The founder of GatherUp is Ricardo Freitas. He is from Portugal, wrote his master in Software Usability at Cambridge University and lives now in Shenzhen.

“The idea is actually quite old. It started when I was back in college.” Ricardo says. “Back then I was coding a lot together with my friends. While coding we used to have music sharing sessions. Everybody could play a song for the entire group to listen, when one song ended, the next person could play a new one. This would create a chain of inspiration that would lead to some pretty nice music discoveries. Some of my favorite artist were discovered this way. The whole experience also created a bond between us. We were sharing a part of us, our musical taste.”

He came to Startup Salad to meet up new people, pitch his idea, build a prototype and lastly show it. He came out with a prize, invaluable feedback and a new sense of direction.

“The Startup Salad Hong Kong was a great experience, it allowed me to focus on the most important part of my pitch, the prototype. Actions speak louder than words, and action I so did.”


After the event, he is still working on the project, and formed a team with some close friends. GatherUp is still under internal testing, so let’s wait eagerly for its release!

Advantages for Hong Kong startups to connect with Shenzhen startups

Both Hong Kong and Shenzhen have great advantages to start a business. Hong Kong, an international city that can easily access to the overseas resources, has a sound financial system and a stable legal system to help you start and maintain the business. Shenzhen, with gathered talent engineering, economic hardware components, good supply chain and government support, is a good choice for startup business. Here in Shenzhen, startup is booming, startup communities are mature, incubators are supporting, as well as more chances to meet investors and raise money for business.

Startups from Hong Kong won’t give up the high growing market of mainland China. Startups from Shenzhen are also looking for the opportunities to grow in a more international environment. As long as we can share the experience and culture difference, it will be a perfect match!

Hopefully Startup Salad Hong Kong can provide such a platform to help these startups to communicate, to share, to work together!
