  • 16-09-2020 CORPORATE PITCHING

    Pitching to top Asian Corporates. Participate in the live digital pitch session by Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB)

    This is an unparalleled opportunity for European startups to gain access to more than 10 of the leading Asian customers, investors and co-innovation partners across diverse industries, in one single platform. Before pitching, a startup finalist already knows that a potential Asian client, partner or investor has confirmed interest in their solution.
    Unlike other startup programmes, this is a demand-led innovation programme where the Asian companies’ votes determine the top 50 startup finalists, and not the programme organisers.
