If you are a tech startup based in the Asia Pacific with a working prototype or product which you have launched to a market already, then the 2020 TOP100 APAC may just be the right programme for you.
The 2020 TOP100 APAC is a curated programme designed to discover, showcase, and accelerate the next generation of up-and-coming startups. By joining the programme, startups can enjoy unique perks such as being able to showcase their startup visions at the Echelon Asia Summit in Singapore, getting direct access to investors who are actively looking for startups, finding and connecting with one’s possible business matches, and so much more.
On top of that, by joining the 2020 TOP100 APAC, your startup stands the chance to win incredible prizes and the honour of representing your country as the TOP100 2020 champion. By being part of the programme, your startup automatically becomes a part of the TOP100’s formidable alumni network — which is already a prize in itself, given the diversity and track records of those who are also part of the network being well-within one’s reach.
“After winning TOP100, Softinn gained traction across ASEAN countries and globally,” said Jess Shen Lee, founder of Softinn. He added, “We were approached by quality investors further spurring our growth. We’re now in Indonesia and Vietnam because of TOP100.”
This is only one of the many examples of how TOP100 impacts many startups from the region for the better.
