SEED PLANET to host First Asian Australian Startups Roadshow Competition Final Pitch Night
SEED PLANET, Australia’s pioneering platform for Asian Australian startups, is set to host its inaugural event, the First Asian Australian Startups Roadshow Competition Final Pitch Night on August 10th 2023 at the University of Melbourne, Wade Institute of Entrepreneurship. The platform’s mission is to unite Asian Australian entrepreneurs and investors, fostering innovation, collaboration, and investment opportunities for startups led by Asian founders or with significant Asian ownership.
Unlike broader networks and associations, SEED PLANET focuses exclusively on empowering Asian-founded startups, leading to the cultivation of a vibrant community of over 500 entrepreneurs and investors in just seven months. The platform has gained an impressive following of approximately 9,000 individuals, including industry professionals, investors, and visionaries. Through 20 thoughtfully curated online and offline events, SEED PLANET has garnered significant exposure in major Australian mainstream media outlets.
The First Asian Australian Startups Roadshow Competition Final Pitch Night is a critical part of SEED PLANET’s mission to propel Asian-founded startups to global recognition and success. The competition invites early-stage startups with Asian founders or at least 50% Asian ownership and a minimum viable product (MVP) or conceptual stage. A distinguished panel of judges, industry professionals, and investors will assess the startups and select the most promising ones for showcasing.
SEED PLANET goes beyond the pitch night by providing extensive post-event support, including online community interactions, mentorship programs, one-on-one meetings with investors and mentors, and access to essential resources and services.
The platform’s vision is to be the driving force behind Australia’s Asian Australian startup ecosystem, creating an environment for innovation, collaboration, and investment opportunities. The First Asian Australian Startups Roadshow Competition Final Pitch Night promises to be a landmark event, connecting investors with some of the country’s most exceptional entrepreneurs and offering unmatched exposure for startups and investors alike.
Investors are encouraged to join SEED PLANET on August 10th at the University of Melbourne to witness the brilliance of Australia’s Asian-founded startups and explore collaboration possibilities with these innovative ventures.
