The MeetUp will consist of two sessions:

Session 1: Edmund will talk about his experiences as an entrepreneur and investor, and share insights about Asian markets that will be useful for Israeli startups planning to venture to Asia. He and the other NUS guests will also present the NUS Overseas College program, which might be VERY RELEVNT TO ALL OF US and its cooperation with young companies like ours.

Session 2: Five (5) Entrepreneurs will pitch their startups to Edmund, Shmuel and the crowd and receive feedback. If you wish to pitch your startup - send me a note ASAP!

    The introduction by Mr. Yong was too long and not too related to the startups presenting. The feedback that was given by the panel to the startups was anything but constructive criticism. It seemed that the panel wanted to 'butcher' the startups, rather than help them.
