Preliminary Tour Shows

fukuoka startup

Fukuoka Japan

Fukuoka has set itself out as startup hub for Japan. With startup visas available, cheaper living than Tokyo and local government support, we’re seeing founders opt for Fukuoka over other cities in Japan. Is all the recent media coverage of Fukuoka for real or is it just hype? We’re heading to Kyushu in August to find out.

vietnam startup

Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam

As one of Asia’s fastest growing economies, Vietnam carries the weight of expectations. A hub of manufacturing and dropshipping operations, Ho Chi Minh has a vast supply of young talented developers and designers. But, we all know that skills alone do not make a great startup scene. What’s the startup culture like?

myanmar startup

Yangon Myanmar

Whatever could be said about fast emerging economies in Asia, has been said about Myanmar. From the “next Thailand” to the “next Tiger”, Myanmar’s ascent to public prominence has been driven by the rapid adoption of mobile technology and internet, a young progressive population and a flood of foreign money. Is Yangon overhyped or is the startup buzz there real? We’re heading to Myanmar in September to find out.

bangkok startup

Bangkok Thailand

Not only listed as the hottest capital in the world weather-wise, Bangkok could also be the hottest city in the world startup-wise. While we haven’t had any big exits yet, Thailand is a hotbed of startup talent – from local founders opting to do their own thing outside of their family businesses to a growing population of location independent entrepreneurs and digital nomads.

jakarta indonesia

Jakarta Indonesia

With one of the youngest and largest populations in the world, Jakarta has all the demographic ingredients to make a great startup capital – but does it deliver? Jakarta has always struggled with infrastructure compared to its more developed neighbors but perhaps this is the stuff that yields innovative solutions (like GoJek) that can take on bigger markets abroad. We’re heading to Jakarta in September to find out more about the Indonesian startup scene.

singapore startup


The jewel in the Asian startup crown, Singapore, bills itself as the complete package. This startup city has everything from fintech accelerators to coworking spaces on every corner. But, is there too much money and not enough hustle in Singapore to generate real cutting edge startups that can thrive outside of its borders in less forgiving markets abroad?
