In Hyperinterdisciplinary Conference in Singapore 2021 organized by Leave a Nest Singapore (Feb 27th 2021, Sat), the panel discussion titled as above will be held with Mitsubishi Electric as a partner.
Asian culture has a long history of setting up face to face meetings to initiate new projects, maybe to create a reliable atmosphere for each other, especially for international ones. However, COVID-19, of course, makes it really difficult. In 2020-2021, Mitsubishi Electric has started new international PoC projects with ASEAN startups. How can this be possible without face to face meeting?
In this session, not only can you learn some secret ingredients for a multinational company (MNC) to shake hands with startups during COVID-19 era, but also the perspectives from startups' side collaborated with MNC. Some actual episodes to describe UP and DOWN during the PoC activities might be covered by panelists.
