Asia's leading resource platform for innovation-led businesses, encouraging a new generation of technology leaders, creators, entrepreneurs and investors who are constantly impacting the marketplaces they work in.
Since 2007, e27 has kept it's pulse on technopreneurship in Asia by reporting on news, trends and investment deal flows taking place in the region as well as organizing community mixers such as the monthly Founders Drinks.
Sensing an emerging community of technopreneurs at the time, e27 organized its first Echelon conference in 2010 to connect technopreneurs with investor communities and is today regarded as the premier technology conference in Asia for startups and growth-stage businesses. The success of Echelon spun off a sister conference, Echelon Ignite, that has been running since 2012 with the aim of catalyzing local startup industries around Asia.
In February 2013, e27 raised a round of investment from B Dash Ventures (JP), Pinehurst Advisors (TW), Ardent Capital (TH), Dan Neary (SG), 8Capita (SG) and angel investors. This led to increased operations, events, services and joint ventures into Asia. Two new services, e27 Database and e27 Jobs were also launched to public beta.
With a keen eye on the future of business in Asia, e27 continues to connect and inspire a generation of leaders that aspire to impact lives through innovation and entrepreneurship.
