From June 15 to 16, the Echelon Asia Summit 2016 will return to Singapore with the promise of renowned speakers, countless networking opportunities and three different zones for startups of all maturity.
With this year’s theme of “Tech Pioneers of Tomorrow”, the two-day summit will reflect Echelon’s goal of being the “nexus point where technology and business leaders connect with next-gen entrepreneurs to develop new technologies that can impact the world of business and society”.
Held at the Singapore Expo, the Echelon Asia Summit will host executives and delegations from all over the world bringing together over 70 curated speakers and thought leaders. A few notable ones being Yamaha Motor Ventures & Laboratory Silicon Valley’s Hiroshi Saijou, along with Timbre’s Edward Chia, will be sharing their experiences and insights in different zones.
The three zones, Create, Build and Reach, and Future, will address the needs of startups of all ages, from emerging to mature ones.
The Create zone is for early stage startups and aspiring entrepreneurs. Young entrepreneurs attending this zone can expect presentations from incubators, accelerators, seed-stage, pre-series A and growth stage startups. This zone will cover talks on the foundations, culture and scaling of startups. They include Leadership for Startups by Soon Loo, Managing Director of Seri VC and Program Leader of Executive Coach International, and A Female Entrepreneur’s Journey from Silicon Valley to Saigon, by Esther Nguyen, founder and CEO of POPS Worldwide.
The Build and Reach zones are catered mainly to growth stage startups, hustlers, marketers, and product and development people. In the Build zone, technical solutions providers, including CTOs, CIOs, product managers, designers and developers, will be presenting to attendees. The Reach zone will host talks from CMOs, pro digital marketers, PR experts and growth hackers. Attendees can expect talks like Building a Corporate Reputation for Your Startup by Yu Poh Leng, Senior Vice President of Ruder Finn Asia, and Creating Virality by Eli Schwartz, Director of Marketing, APAC at Survey Monkey.
The Future zone is applicable for everyone, and will hold presentations from key influencers, international speakers, tech visionaries, and industry heavyweights. Audiences of the Create stage will be enlightened by talks such as Paving the Future of Work to Engage Millennials and Beyond by Karoli Hindriks, founder of Jobbatical, and Jia Jin Chai, Vice President, International Vice President of Carousell. Lais de Oliveira, founder of 8spaces, will moderate the latter.
