As part of an initiative to support promising startups and nurture good ideas, AIBC Asia will welcome 100 startups from the region to its upcoming expo taking place in Manila this July.

The startup companies will take part in AIBC’s Startup Village project, where each project is given a highly coveted space on the expo floor. The event will also feature a Pitch competition – designed to connect budding startups and entrepreneurs with leading industry experts and help get good ideas off the ground.

Six startups, shortlisted by a team of experienced judges, will compete during the expo for a lucrative price including investment opportunities, mentorship, a free 2x2m booth at the next event of their choice, 5 passes, a magazine interview, consultancy, and visibility across social media. The live event includes a timed pitch and presentation and an interactive Q&A session.
