Asia has already proved to be among the leaders of the global tech revolution. The velocity of the region’s growth is striking.



Over the last couple of years, Asia has made huge steps in the development of the startup ecosystem and the broadening of investment opportunities. For example, only in 2017, Southeast Asia managed to attract a whopping $7.86 billion from investors. But with high speed and unlimited possibilities, there always comes high competition. Moreover, not all the ecosystems are growing at the same pace, as each country has its own cultural and commercial differences. Therefore, It’s crucial to provide local citizens with access to quality learning and funding opportunities.

In 2018, the Seedstars team traveled to 14 Asian countries including Indonesia, Singapore, Myanmar, and Vietnam to uncover Asia’s untapped potential and spot the brightest early-stage companies in the region. All 13 startups, selected during the Seedstars Asia Tour, will have an opportunity to participate in Seedstars Asia Summit on November 30th in Bangkok and later, to compete for the $500K award at the global Seedstars Summit in Lausanne, Switzerland in April.
