Learn about the opportunities across ASEAN for UK companies with innovative digital solutions

About this event

The ASEAN region represents one of the most significant growth opportunities for UK digital technology businesses. With a combined GDP of US$3.2 trillion and accounting for approximately 8.5% of the world’s population, ASEAN has one of the fastest-growing internet markets in the world. Its digital economy is projected to reach $300bn by 2025 and is home to over 400m internet users.

IoT Tribe’s Tech Challenge will connect the best of British startups and SMEs and their cutting-edge solutions with major corporates in the ASEAN region to solve their key pain points and establish strong working relationships.

The challenges facing corporates across ASEAN include:

  • Reducing energy consumption and net zero
  • Voice authentication for heavily accented English
  • Geospatial data to predict consumer trends
  • Data sharing across organisational borders
  • Avoiding incorrect or duplicate supplier payments through fraud detection or financial data mining
  • Deploying OT risk frameworks

If you are a startup, small or medium business based in the UK, and have a proven solution to tackle these challenges, then join us for an AMA session to learn about how the Tech Challenge can help you build traction in a new market and connect you with potential clients.

The Tech Challenge is a part of the ASEAN-UK Digital Innovation Partnership from the Digital Trade Network, delivered by IoT Tribe.

Join us during one of two Ask Me Anything online briefing events to learn about the opportunities available in the ASEAN region and the corporates involved, find out about the purpose and benefits of joining the programme and ask your questions.

During the session, we will also share the details of the application process.
