Asian Startup Pitching Event 2019
SFAsia (an initiative of GlobalSF) was happy to partner with Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) and Accelerating Asia to host a pitching event on September 10, 2019 at the Silicon Valley Bank. The event was also sponsored by the Silicon Valley Bank. The objective of the event was to introduce well-established Asian startup communities from different parts of Asia to the San Francisco Bay Area startup market. The Asian startup groups also got to meet and greet other San Francisco Bay Area investors, venture capitalists and angel investors.
SFAsia would like to thank Murat Wahab, Director, SFAsia, Cheryl Yeoh, Entrepreneur-In-Residence, Silicon Valley Bank and Craig Dixon, Co-Founder, Entrepreneur-In-Residence, and Program Director, Accelerating Asia for organizing and hosting the event.
