2:00 pm - AppWorks Accelerator SEA Roadshow – Singapore

AppWorks Accelerator #17 is calling all AI & Blockchain startups!

Seems like the secret’s out; Prominent internet startups across Greater Southeast Asia including Shopee, Carousell, HonestBee, and Shopback are all increasingly prioritizing Taiwan to not only tap into its sizable digital economy, but also leverage the country’s high-tech talent pool. In this past half-year alone, tech companies such as Google, Microsoft, and IBM had earmarked Taiwan as a regional R&D hub for cultivating cutting-edge technologies like AI and blockchain.

This May, we will fly to Singapore to share how AppWorks Accelerator can help founders and startups land in Taiwan to develop their technologies, find viable business models, and get their ventures off the ground. We will host an orientation that will detail all the resources we provide spanning mentorship, workshops, networking events, corporate partnerships, and access to the largest startup community in Greater Southeast Asia.

Join us at 2pm on Thursday, May 17th @ BLOCK71 Singapore!
