April 19-21   Global Ventures Summit  

Nusa Dua Convention Center, Bali, Indonesia

Although Silicon Valley remains the world’s center for startups, attention has been shifting to Asia where the next generation of “unicorns” is likely to emerge.  In recognition of this trend, AICC is pleased to be a cooperating sponsor for this event to match the region’s startups with Silicon Valley and other  investors.
Created by AICC  member Ahmed Shabana (Parkpine Capital), GVS2017 has a assembled a stellar lineup of experts, leaders and game-changers from around the world who will be flown in to share their stories, discuss new trends and educate attendees on how to get funding.”All we keep hearing from investors is ‘show me quality pitch decks with validated ideas.’ They want to see as many startups as possible – and see them before anyone else. Early access is key and that’s why we’re scouring the region to encourage as many startups as possible to join. GVS is a perfect opportunity for ASEAN startups to get in front of investors,” says Shabana.
Over the three days of the summit there will be:
  • The GVS Pitch Battle is a half-day for hand-selected startups to compete for $50,000 in cash and a hosted trip to Silicon Valley. Each selected competing startup will get two free passes to GVS, eliminating the financial barrier for some of these cash-strapped teams. The application can be found here: http://www.gvsummit.co/application-form
  • Any qualifying startup can showcase their company at the GVS Exhibition Hall. GVS has kept the price incredibly low – USD $500, which includes two passes for the exhibiting startup in order to get as many ideas at the table as possible. Exhibition Booths can be reserved here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/global-ventures-summit-bali-2017-tickets-27118621527
  • 30+ keynotes and panel discussions open to all attendees. Experts, leaders and game-changers from around the world will be flown in to share their stories, discuss new trends and educate attendees on how to get funding. The latest agenda can be found here: http://www.gvsummit.co/summit-agenda
  • .A series of closed-door investor meetings with LPs, VCs, Angels and policy-makers managing $3 billion in working capital will be hosted to facilitate these transactions.
