Representing Taiwan, Outland Inc. will be exhibiting amongst APAC’s best startups at Echelon Asia Summit 2016’s TOP100 programme.
After kicking off the TOP100 Startup Search 2016 in Singapore, the next stop in our tour was Taipei, Taiwan on 14 March 2016. The team behind Hellowings – Outland Inc. – impressed the judges and was crowned the Judges’ Choice winner of the Qualifier, walking away with SGD$500 cash prize and a free booth package at Echelon Asia Summit 2016.
Among the Taiwanese submissions we’ve received, 6 promising startups were shortlisted to pitch at Taiwan Startup Stadium, including teams like San Draw Inc, and SkyREC Inc. With just three minutes of intense pitching time and five minutes of Q&A, these startups had to impress the judges to make it through to the TOP100.
The judging panel consisted of esteemed investors from Taiwan and abroad, including:
- Liu Genping – Executive Director, Vertex Ventures
- Brian Yang – Head of APAC, Prosiebensat.1 Media SE
- Kevin Chen – Partner, Pinehurst Advisors
- Manabu Miyazaki – Principal, IMJ Investment Partners
With an impressive pitch, Outland Inc. showcased Hellowings Budget and their game-changing approach for the un-catered in a seemingly saturated market – the daily air commuters, low-budget backpackers, and those on short business trips. According to Outland Inc., most customers can only search 30% of all Low Cost Carriers (LCCs) available. HelloWings Budget’s ticket search method enable buyers to retrieve at least 95% of all LCC airline’s official ticket prices.
With 96 airlines already on board, the company is also on the way of selling tickets directly, so the customers not only can mix and match flight segments but also enjoy a smooth booking experience.
Scores from all 14 city qualifiers will be tabulated to determine the ultimate TOP100, who will stage and exhibit amongst the region’s best at Echelon Asia Summit. Get your tickets now to watch your favourite startups pitch on the Create stage this June!
