When people think of Southeast Asia, island-hopping, sacred elephants, elaborate temples, good coffee, and a vibrant nightlife typically come to mind. What people might overlook is the untapped potential of the Southeast Asian tech sector. China, however, seems to have noticed the rise of talented entrepreneurs, with Chinese tech giants like Alibaba and Tencent pouring capital into the region. We’ve noticed this too, and that’s why we’re bringing Asia Hardware Battle (AHB) 2018 to Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and Indonesia.

We are currently in the Online Registration phase. We’re looking for hardware startups with Pre-Series A or a total funding of less than $5 million. Startups must have a prototype, and projects must exhibit the following: creativity, pain point resolution, business value, sustainable development, technical innovation, and product design.

Note: We are only looking for startups from Mainland China, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, India, and Malaysia.
