Startup Asia Jakarta 2013 will feature, as seen at last year’s Jakarta event, a conference, a Startup Arena pitching competition, and a hackathon.
The formula for the pitching contest, Startup Arena, has been tweaked for 2013; unlike in the past, both seed and growth-stage startups will be accepted and will compete separately. About 20 startups will eventually take to the stage to compete in both categories. The seed stage category winner will take home US$10,000. The growth-stage category will win a chance to negotiate an investment deal with one or more of the investors who make up our expert Startup Arena judging panel.
In the same Startup Asia Jakarta 2013 conference, Techinasia are simultaneously running a 24-hour hackathon which will see over 400 developers building products with APIs and SDKs from numerous partner companies. The list of APIs and SDKs will be announced soon.
Aside from the networking opportunities, the conference also features numerous speakers, including startup founders and industry leaders from companies such as Rakuten Ventures, Kakao, MediaCorp, and GDP Ventures, offering fresh and honest insights on upcoming industry trends. Techinasia will be updating the list of speakers on their website in the run-up to the event, so do stay tuned.
