ApigateGo: The Search for the Next Tech Super Star
From May to July, Apigate had a successful few months travelling all over Southeast Asia in the search for the best and the brightest developers in the tech world. Our journey started in Singapore at the Echelon Asia Summit 2019, followed by Techsauce Global Summit 2019 (Bangkok, Thailand), Google I/O Extended 2019, NG-MY Angular JS Conference 2019, and finally Graduan Aspire 2019 in Malaysia. It was a fantastic experience and we hope to see more brilliant minds and aspiring developers at our next events.

In the second quarter of 2019, Apigate went to the Echelon Asia Summit 2019 in Singapore, held on 23-24 May. During the two-day event, Apigate participated as an exhibitor alongside 100+ other tech startups. We were represented by our Business Development Director, Logen at the summit that focused on tech and business ecosystem. Attended by more than 15,000 investors, aspiring entrepreneurs, corporations, and government agencies from all over Asia, Echelon Asia was a good platform for us to reach out to start-ups, developers and technopreneurs for potential partnerships and innovative collaborations.
Techsauce Global Summit 2019, 19-20 June 2019, Centara Grand at Central World, Thailand
Apigate participated at the Techsauce Global Summit 2019 from 19 - 20 June 2019 at Centara Grand at Central World, Thailand. Unlike the usual tech summit, Techsauce was more than just a regular tech summit as it also attracted not just the tech geeks, but also drew the interests from the likes of social entrepreneurs, musicians and artists, filmmakers and even athletes. With our main objective being to increase Apigate’s brand and product awareness to the target audience, we joined alongside other big names like Bosch, IBM, DTAC Accelerate, AWS, Hubba Co-working Space and TikTok, to name a few. During that two-day event, Apigate had the opportunity to network with 10,000+ attendees, 500 investors, 350+ speakers and 1,500+ start-ups.
