In less than two weeks, Tech in Asia will play host to over 3,000 attendees at the fourth edition of our Jakarta conference. It will be the largest ever in terms of attendee numbers and also stage content, with the debut of five expert stages.
But the action doesn’t stop here. We’re going a step further to provide each individual, whether you are a Tech in Asia Jakarta conference attendee or not, opportunities to connect with investors, VCs, and like-minded folks in the tech community. During the week of our conference (November 9 onwards), we have collaborated with the likes of Uber, Marvelstone, East Ventures, and Growth Hacking Asia to bring an awesome lineup of activities for you to participate in. Everyone is welcome to join!
Please note that the following events are open to all. You need not be a Tech in Asia Jakarta 2015 conference attendee to be eligible to attend them.

This is limited to two loops around Jakarta’s Pacific Place Mall, so get ready to hone your pitches.

2. Attracting talent to your startup (by East Ventures)
If you’re in a startup, you know by now that recruiting the right talent is hard. Recruitment is more often than not one of the top challenges faced when founders grow the company. It’s especially tough for early-stage startups to win the talent war when you put them against huge corporations or post-series A startups.
To help ease the recruitment challenges, East Ventures is inviting pre-series A startups to join in a sharing session on tips for how to attract talent. Startups from across diverse industries will be present to share real case studies as well as insights on lessons learnt.
Date: Monday, November 9
Time: 7pm to 10pm
Venue: EV Hive (The Maja)

3. Fintech Asia Forum (by Marvelstone)
After two successful events in Korea and Singapore, the Fintech Asia Forum by Marvelstone is back and headed to The Big Durian – Jakarta. This time round, the forum will focus on fintech trends and developments in emerging markets across Asia with a special focus on Indonesia through an interactive panel session with industry players.
With Asia being a fragmented region made up of many countries with varying levels of market development, regulatory requirements and customer needs, the opportunities within each market differ. The session will take a deep look into the similarities and differences between developed and emerging markets, and how these markets with different stages of technology, innovation and acceptance rates interact within the ecosystem in Asia.
Date: Tuesday, November 10
Time: 12pm to 4pm
Price: US$10 for attendees who register before November 1; or US$15 if you register after November 1
