We live in an increasingly digital, automated, and data-driven world which is displacing and disrupting almost every industry around the globe. Work does more than just provide a means to live; it provides a source of identity, security, community, and meaning. I truly believe this is the most important challenge of our lifetimes. We can let technology determine the future for us — or we can reimagine it ourselves. With over 75 speakers, 4,000 attendees, 160 exhibitors and 750 startups in attendance this year’s Startcon will comprehensively answer that question for a lot of people.”

“StartCon 2019 will also feature expert workshops, a tech expo, hackathon, masterclasses, a FinTech stage, a Disruption stage, VIP lounge and an artificial intelligence (AI) stage. Guests can also attend networking events, experience live gaming and visit a startup alley that includes some of the most innovative businesses in the local market and across Asia” concludes Lana.
