2019 International Creatineer Competition
Techbridge Ventures organized the Southeast Asian edition of the 2019 International Creatineer Competition on 4thSeptember, 2019 in collaboration with Enterprise SG and SIASUN (www.siasun.hk), China's leading robotics company.
The Competition received numerous submissions from researchers, start-ups and SMEs based in Southeast Asia.
A roadshow was held in the office of Enterprise SG where nine teams based in Singapore pitched their technologies to a panel of judges in Singapore, as well as a Technology Analyst from SIASUN who participated via video conference. A further evaluation, including video interview, was conducted with applicants not based in Singapore.
Based on the recommendations of Partners and Judges, two start-ups, Techssisted Surgical (Singapore) and RTFaceDeep(Malaysia) were selected to participate in the Global Finals where they competed with 6 other start-ups from US, Europe and East Asia.
We are proud to announce that, after a review by four independent investment firms (HKX, HBCC Investment, HKSTP Corporate Venture Fund, and Alibaba Entrepreneurs Fund), Techssisted Surgical (Singapore) has emerged as the first-place winner in the Global Creatineer Competition!
They will be eligible for up to US$250k investment from HKX as well as other related financial incentives.
We would like to express our appreciation to all Participants and Partners, without whom this event would not be possible.
