We are proud to announce yet another awesome prize up for grabs at our TechNode Launchpad event next month. If you don’t already know, TechNode Launchpad is a start-up pitch and demo competition.

Today, we have confirmed that Akio Tanaka of Infinity Ventures has generously sponsored a prize for the start-up he selects as having the best potential to expand outside China, particularly Japan. The prize is an all expenses paid flight, hotel and entry to visit the Infinity Ventures Summit, held in Sapporo Japan, valued at approximately RMB20K!

This is among other hot prizes we announced earlier this week, such as:

  • An Innovation Trip to Visit Rovio HQ (Angry Birds) in Finland (more details to come)
  • Prize money of at least RMB20K (to be confirmed)
  • Media coverage on TechCrunch, our media partner

So hurry up and get your submissions into us. We are closing entry on January 31.
