SINGAPORE, 6 August, 2015 – Techventure 2015, the premier meeting place in Southeast Asia for global technopreneurs and investors, is focusing efforts this year on increasing deal flow between the two sides.
Themed “Start Here! – where global technopreneurs and investors meet”, Techventure matches innovation with an enterprising tech-centered culture, and is the place to start and grow a technology business.
Now into its 19th year, Techventure, which will be held from 21–22 September 2015 at the Marina Bay Sands Singapore, has grown into a global technology event attracting participation from Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Norway, Philippines, Russia, Thailand, Taiwan, Turkey, United Kingdom and the United States.
Designed to match investors with startups, Techventure features one-to-one sessions between startups and investors and these interactions will be tracked for follow-up after the conference. Techventure has enjoyed strong support among startups in Singapore.
Techventure 2015 is expected to see more than 100 investors 1,000 visitors and delegates gathering together from all around the world. It will feature different areas of technology – engineering and manufacturing; biotech and medtech; infocomm and digital media; and environmental sustainability. It is a must-attend event for anyone in this space.
“There are global talents with in-depth knowledge of their domestic markets in Singapore. Our startups can tap into this pool of talent for growth and expansion overseas,” said Dr Mark Hon, Acting Chairman of the Action Community for Entrepreneurship (ACE).
To celebrate Singapore’s 50th year of independence, Techventure 2015 will host a special panel of Singaporean technopreneurs, startup founders and investors who have built successful tech startups and venture capital funds. They will be sharing their experiences in growing technology ideas into thriving and profitable businesses. In addition, as a prelude to Techventure 2015, National Research Foundation Singapore (NRF) and ACE jointly organised the inaugural Singapore Startup Challenge. 8 of Singapore’s best startups were selected for mentorship by ACE in preparation to compete against global winning teams at Techventure International Startup Challenge.
