COLUMBIA ASIA TECHNOLOGY ENTREPRENEURSHIP CONFERENCE (CATEC)

Please join us for the inaugural Columbia Asia Technology Entrepreneurship Conference (CATEC) which is organized by Columbia Alumni for bringing together regional leaders, entrepreneurs and investors to discuss major technology trends impacting the technology entrepreneurial landscape in Asia.  CATEC will also host an annual startup competition to spotlight, promote and recognize the most promising startups taking advantage of these new emerging trends.

If you have a promising tech startup that you would like to enter into the competition, please forward no more than ten slides to startup.cuaahk@gmail.com for consideration. You do not need to be affiliated with Columbia to enter the competition.

The top ten or so startups will be selected by a team of professional investors and invited to share about their businesses to a panel of venture capitalists and the many other investors who will be at the conference.
