Following the success of previous Startup Asia event held in Jakarta last November, TechinAsia.com, Asia’s largest English-language technology and startup blog, is gearing up to bring you yet another round of our signature conference series with Startup Asia Singapore 2014, happening May 7-8 right in the heart of Biopolis, Singapore’s deep tech research center.
Startup Asia Singapore 2014 will feature, as seen at last year’s Jakarta event, a conference, a Startup Arena pitching competition, a Hackathon, a Startup and Investor speed dating session. We will also give you two new highlights: Meet the Bloggers and Market Expansion Tracks.
On the pitching contest, Startup Arena, both seed and growth-stage startups will be accepted and compete together on day one. About 10 to 15 startups will eventually take to the stage to compete for USD 10,000 in cash. Latest submission for Startup Arena is on March 31, 2014.
In the same Startup Asia Singapore 2014 conference, we are simultaneously running a 24-hour hackathon which will see over 200 developers building products with APIs and SDKs from numerous partner companies. The list of APIs and SDKs will be announced soon.
We are very privileged to have as our Guest of Honour, Singapore Minister of State Teo Ser Luck. MOS Teo has been extremely involved in championing entrepreneurship in Singapore and is the perfect person to help us kick off Day One of the conference.
A few other highly respected names have also agreed to speak and they include Dave Morin (founder and CEO of Path), Min-Liang Tan (founder and CEO of Razer), and Razmig Hovaghimian (co-founder and CEO of ViKi). You can look forward to hearing about their experiences and picking their brains about the future. Find out more aboutthe speakers line up here.
