Innovation Weekend Singapore

ROAD TO TOKYO
Description

What is Innovation Weekend Singapore?

We will have a pitch contest performed by promising startups in Innovation Weekend, as well as speeches by successful guests and entrepreneurs from Singapore and overseas.

It is the very first of the series of events named Innovation Weekend World Tour: Winners from Innovation Weekend Singapore, London, Boston and Tokyo will get together and compete in the Grand Finale held in December. Meaning, the champion of Singapore will be invited to Tokyo!

Why should I join the event?

Don't miss the chance to meet startups carefully selected from hundreds of highly competitive candidates. You'll see some of the leading startups of Singapore who will be globally successful in the near future. The 1st place winner will be invited to Tokyo to make a pitch at the final session in December. The 2nd place winner will also earn the right to make a pitch in Tokyo too!

The organizer of the event is SunBridge Global Ventures, who has a strong presence in the Japanese startup community, so you could get connected to a lot of Japanese venture capitalists, angel investors, media writers, entrepreneurs, engineers, students and so on.
In addition, the CEO of Sunbridge Global Ventures, Prof. Hiraishi, will give a speech about what's happening in Japan today. It'll be a quite rare opportunity for startup people to learn up-to-date Japanese market, without traveling out of Singapore.

Innovation Weekend World Tour is a first-ever challenge that connects non-SV entrepreneurial cities in the world. Don't miss the chance to join the movement!
