We attended “Tech in Asia”‘s Startup Asia Event held in Singapore in Feb 2012. As a recipient of the Yes!Startup Grant by Spring Singapore, we were invited by Tech in Asia team to participate in the panel of speakers to discuss on the topic of Grants in Singapore.
It was a pretty well done event, considering that they had a small team to pull it off, the only improvement I think should be the booths for startups section, which was too small and narrow, but that’s probably due to the space constraint and I’m sure the next time will be better.
The entire event was pretty well scheduled and we met lots of budding entrepreneurs like ourselves, from Singapore as well as from the regional countries. It’s pretty good to see that in our industry, people like Tech in Asia and e27 are doing a wonderful job in reaching out to the regional entrepreneurs which in turn creates a well-balanced eco-system in Asia.
Let’s hope that this carries on in the near future and Singapore gets more and more recognition as one of Asia’s or even one of the World’s Tech Hub!
