Bootstrap Alley Tour goes to 10 cities in search for the best startups to showcase

Startup Asia Singapore

Bootstrap Alley booth

At Tech in Asia, we are serious about unearthing the best startups across Asia. Apart from having great writers scattered across the region, writing about new innovations from Indonesia and Hong Kong, to Pakistan and Myanmar, we also showcase Asian startups at our signature Startup Asia conferences.

Held tri-annually in Singapore, Japan, and Indonesia, Startup Asia showcases newly launched and product-ready tech startups born in the region. Housed in the Bootstrap Alley exhibition showcase, these startups will get an unparalleled opportunity to test products and get feedback from more than 3,000 international tech-savvy early adopters this May in Singapore.

This time, we want to do even better.

In the lead up to Startup Asia Singapore on May 6 and 7, Bootstrap Alley is going on a ten-city tour around to find the best startups to showcase. The first ever Bootstrap Alley Tour will arrive in Jakarta, Hanoi, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Tokyo, Taipei, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur, Yangon, and Bangalore in March 2015.

For each leg, we’ll be looking for the top five startups to pitch to a live audience and panel of investor judges. Each of the ten BAT winners will win free flights and accommodation, conference passes, and a startup booth at Startup Asia Singapore 2015.
