Bridging Southeast Asia with the rest of the world is at the heart of Slush Singapore from the very beginning. Singapore is Asia’s hit-list destination for tech-heads – hence the perfect opportunity to gain access into the dynamic startup ecosystem in Southeast Asia. It serves as the ultimate focal point for Asian and global startups and tech talent. This year, Slush Singapore has continued its work to put Southeast Asia on the map. In partnership with Monk’s Hill Ventures, Slush Singapore took on a quest to map out the Southeast Asian tech, startup and funding ecosystem. They were joined by many partners with a common goal to create a meaningful overview around the state of funding, trending sectors and future projections of growth for the region.

Whether you are from within this region or from outside of it, this report will provide a great starting point to understand Southeast Asia’s tech and startup landscape, as well as the opportunities within.
