Andrew Ng

TINIC ’s founder, Andrew Ng, discovered his passion for creating high quality fashion bags and accessories twelve years ago.

At that time, he had joined RABEANCO, a local Hong Kong handbag manufacturer. He observed that there was a niche market for providing local female executives with bags that met their unique needs. So he proposed the development of well- constructed, quality leather bags that were adaptable to the lively pace of life in the city. The bags were well received not just by female executives but also men as well. This was the start of RABEANCO establishing itself as a successful brand in Hong Kong.

Why 5cmXD Ventures?

Return on design investment (RODI) has been measured across many years by the UK Design Council and the U.S. Design Management Institute. This research shows that in the UK an average design investment will multiply the turnover by 2.25 when compared with the invested resources.

In the U.S. the Design Value Index shows a 228% increase in value for listed companies rated as design led. In Denmark companies investing in design have gained a growth 22% greater than companies that have not invested in design and the difference will rise up to 40% when talking about continuous investing.
