We’re not going to shy away from telling you that we’re only looking for the very best new startups in the region for our upcoming event in Singapore. We at Tech in Asia have been preparing our signature conference Startup Asia Singapore 2014 eagerly and it would be incomplete without the presence of Startup Arena, a competiton for startups across Asia to pitch and compete for US$10,000 in cash.
From all the submissions, we’ll pick the top 10 to pitch live on-stage to a panel of judges and the audience, and thereafter be subjected to a Q&A. When you’re on stage, you’ve got to dazzle, impress, and know your company and industry inside and out. Deadline for all submissions is on March 31, 2014.
We’re looking for startups to launch or pitch their new products at Startup Arena, and we have alumni from many different kinds of industries, including e-commerce, dating, drones, bitcoin and more.
Phillippines’ Payroll Hero managed to raise USD 1 million last year from 500 Startups, Hootsuite CEO Ryan Holmes, and LX Ventures with its employee-tracking service. Meanwhile, Japan’s Phoni had raised series A funding with the amount of 70 million yen (about US$864K) from Nissay Capital, a well-known Japanese VC, with its smarter browsing experience using linkable keywords.
