Singapore's startup ecosystem is widely perceived as a door-opener for manifold opportunities.

Among others, the growth market is known as the leading Asian financial center with a one-of-a-kind service mentality and internationalization ratio. The "door-opener" to Asia is known to be the most liberal and open economy worldwide with a great infrastructure and a rapidly growing middle-class.

In this target market, GIN works closely together with it's partner E27.co, Asia's largest tech media platform. E27.co is the organizer of the well-known Echelon Asia Summit 2018 which will take place from the 28-29 JUNE in 2018. The event provides empowering insights, connections, talent and funding opportunities for all stakeholders of Asia’s tech ecosystem and will be one of the many stops in this acceleration program by GIN.
