Asia is currently one of the most exciting and fast-growing hubs of innovation and entrepreneurship in the world. Within this regional ecosystem, the Singapore-based innovation academy JFDI.Asia has built an extraordinary community of practitioners who accelerate, finance, and teach new startups.
We are thrilled to have JFDI.Asia cofounder Hugh Mason join us on #Crowdchat March 6, 8pm SGT (7am EST) to talk about how innovation is accelerating in Asia, and explain JFDI.Asia’s role in transforming ideas into valuable young businesses. JFDI.Asia ’s accelerator program has an astoundingly high 60% success rate, taking groups of entrepreneurs from concept to investment in 100 days.
A successful entrepreneur and investor, Hugh has mentored over 300 innovative ideas, people, and companies in his journey to build companies around creative people. In this #Crowdchat we will explore the culture of innovation in Asia and what it takes to thrive as a startup in this region today. As always, we’ll be opening the floor for questions!
