Later this month in Singapore two Australian startups will join others from the Asia Pacific region for the first ever DEMO Asia Competition. The two startups that have been chosen are Style Rocks [told you they were one to watch this year] and Tapit [make sure you check out their story on the site tomorrow].
They will join a selection of companies that have been shortlisted to pitch in front of investors and venture capitalists at the event. This is a big deal from our region and I suspect we will see a lot more initiatives and competitions like this over the next 24 months as our tech startup community continues to grow.
Microsoft BizSpark is excited to be taking ten startups from the region to the event in conjunction with Startup Weekend and Founder Institute. For the lucky winners [Bootstrapped and Alpha Pitch] categories they will win unrivalled scholarships with Demo Asia which will be subsidised by corporate sponsors.
We wish our Aussie Competitors the Best of Luck!!
PS. Did you know that Style Rocks have over 87 000 000 combinations on their design your own jewellery site!
