e27 has announced the highly anticipated Echelon Asia Summit 2023, connecting over 5,000 attendees and more than 200 startups from across Asia to facilitate the exploration of investment trends, high-growth sectors, and sustainable growth opportunities in Southeast Asia's tech ecosystem.
e27, a tech and startup media platform in Asia, has announced the launch of this two-day event, taking place on June 14-15 at Singapore EXPO.
With over 100 international speakers, the summit aims to connect startups, explore business opportunities, and foster new tech investments in Southeast Asia. Vietnam's DIFISOFT and Hello3Dworld are among the top 100 startups participating.
Echelon's expert speakers will cover topics including Web3.0, Southeast Asia's rising stars, future sectors and investment trends, mergers and acquisitions, sustainability, and growth.
Workshops, roundtable discussions, exhibitions, and networking sessions will further enrich the experience, offering abundant opportunities for startups and investors in the region.
The previous Echelon Asia Summits have featured renowned figures from startups and venture capital firms such as Grab, Carro, Ninja Van, WeWork, Lazada, Shopback, and numerous others.
The summit will mark the return of the TOP100 programme, where the most promising startups will showcase their projects and compete for the championship. This year, the initiative will also partner with The SAFE STEPS D-Tech Awards, seeking innovative tech solutions for disaster events.
Prior to the main event, e27 organised meetups across ASEAN to discuss local startup landscapes. As with others around the world, Southeast Asia's tech ecosystem faces challenges from inflation, interest rates, and evolving funding opportunities.
Mohan Belani, CEO and co-founder of e27 shared, “The tech ecosystem over the past 10 years has grown thanks to an abundance of investments and a drive towards larger rounds and higher valuations, with little focus on business fundamentals and sustainable growth. The past year has been a good reset and refocus for founders and investors, and this is a good opportunity for the whole system to build afresh and plan for its evolution. Echelon aims to discuss how it can focus on impactful problems and grow sustainably.”
Echelon Asia Summit 2023 promises to be a dynamic platform for startups, investors, and industry leaders to connect, collaborate, and explore the evolving landscape of Southeast Asia's tech environment.
