Echelon Ignite – Updates
It’s approaching fast and it’s going to be big. Echelon Ignite is only 2 weeks away!
So what’s new, what’s hot? First of all, speakers are finalized now and it’s quite an impressive lineup. Additional confirms are the Lazada Asia CEO Maximilian Bittner, Nobuaki Kitagawa, CEO of CyberAgent Ventures and Nobutake Suzuki, Partner at Global Brain – which will also be premier sponsor – Willix Halim the Vice President of Growth for Freelancer, and Adrian Stewart of Galaxy Ventures, and Pieter Kemps Business Development, Startups & Venture Capital, Asia, at Amazon Web Services.
While most of the additions will participate in panel discussion, Willix Halim will speak about achieving Hypergrowth.
“If you want hypergrowth, conventional marketing won’t get you there because it involves absolute, linear growth and not relative, exponential growth.”
And Pieter Kemps will speak about the secrets of Dropbox, Instagram and Pinterest in being able to deploy, grow and scale quickly by using AWS.
The best news for aspiring entrepreneurs however is Day 2 – sorry speakers – it’s the chance to pitch to Global Brain. 10 shortlisted Thai startups will have the chance to win a trip to the Global Brain Alliance Forum held in December in Tokio. Startups will meet representatives of major Japanese enterprises and other startups, which might eventually lead to the connections Startups will need to get funded. The last time Moo Natavudh (Ookbee) won the whole thing. If you need tips, he will be at Ignite as well. The application deadline was yesterday, so let’s see who made it.
