VB Video Webinar: Is Singapore your launch pad to Asia?

NOTE: GrowthBeat -- VentureBeat's provocative new marketing-tech event -- is a week away! We've gathered the best and brightest to explore the data, apps, and science of successful marketing. Get the full scoop here, and grab your tickets while they last.

I just got back from Singapore, where I spent last week helping launch the inaugural DEMO Asia event. Through a series of energetic demonstrations, 76 companies, many of which were non-Asian, unveiled their innovative products to the Asian market.

There’s so much momentum over there, and with Singapore leading Southeast Asia’s startup and tech scene, entrepreneurs from the US and around the world are finding huge value in using Singapore as a hub when expanding to a market of nearly 600 million.

VentureBeat has teamed up with The Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) to host a live video webinar in which CEOs of promising US companies will share tips and pitfalls to tackling the Southeast Asian market, and why they’ve decided on Singapore for their overseas expansion.

Participants so far include:

  • Moderator: Dylan Tweney, Executive Editor, VentureBeat
  • Speaker: Ragnar Kruse, CEO, Smaato
  • Speaker: Tom Burke, CEO, Trilibis Mobile
  • Speaker: Yangbin Wang, CEO, Vobile

The webinar is free to attend and takes place on Thursday, March 22 at 1pm PT. You can register here.

There will be a live attendee Q&A segment directly following the discussion, so have your questions ready. I hope you’ll join in!
