Exclusive for TIA Conference pass holders

About

In-person Speed-Dating

While convenient and borderless, virtual pitches can be tough for both startups and investors to assess through a screen. We understand the importance of in-person meetings, and so we’re making them possible through our flagship Tech in Asia Conference 2020.  

If you have missed pitching your startup to investors in person, here’s your chance! While we are unable to guarantee you funding, you can still walk away from the experience with investor connections – and that’s still a win!

Participating startups will not be able to choose their preferred VCs, as Tech in Asia will be the one to assess compatibility based on a startup’s funding stage and industry, and allocate a suitable VC and time slot. 

To safeguard the health of all stakeholders, there will be limited In-person Speed Dating slots. We seek your patience and understanding as we strive to match investors and startups while complying with existing restrictions.  

Pre-registration will close on October 14 or earlier once all slots are filled.

IMPORTANT: Please note that this conference segment is available only to conference attendees residing in Singapore. Applying for a slot does not immediately confirm it. As we have to manually evaluate and match each entry to available investor slots, only successful applicants will receive a confirmation email with their meeting schedule, which will be sent by October 16, 2020. There will strictly be no changes allowed once the meeting schedule is finalized.
