Leave a Nest Group has managed to fortify its deep tech start-up ecosystem via addition of new startups. Throughout the history of TECH PLANTER in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam from 2014 to 2022, a total of 1129 teams were recruited. We have managed to develop an ecosystem within Asia that aims to nurture real tech ventures. Its steady growth has allowed us to be the largest deep tech discovery platform in Southeast Asia.
Being the largest deep tech discovery platform, the COVID-19 pandemic has not stopped us from conducting TECH PLANTER ASIA Finals 2022. Instead, TECH PLANTER Asia Finals 2022 will be held at The Meeting Point, 73B Ayer Rajah Crescent, Singapore 139966 on 20th August 2022. Apart from technical sharing, we also aim to bridge the TECH PLANTER finalists with Japanese firms. We would love to bring companies and start-ups together to solve existing deep tech challenges.
On 20th August 2022, 12 outstanding teams (Leave a Nest Award winners and Grand winners from six Asian countries) that stood out from 186 applicants, will be pitching and presenting their ideas and technologies. TECH PLANTER Asia Finals will be a great chance for the start-ups to showcase their work and how closely knitted they are within this ecosystem together with the corporations and government sectors. This event would also provide teams from Asia to understand how Japanese companies would like to explore deep tech startups coming from Southeast Asia. The panel of judges mainly are from Japan and would be able to bounce off ideas during the session.
