Workshops

User Acquisition at Scale - Aimen Khan (Google)

A hands on workshop focused towards scaling paid user acquisition for funded startups. The workshop will help startups understand Life Time Value calculations and how to track it properly. There will also be a segment on creative best practices for user acquisition.

Tech Investment Landscape - Justin Nguyen (Monk's Hill)

A deep-dive discussion on the outlook for tech investments across Asia, in different sectors. Work with ecosystem players of different backgrounds, from different countries on the trends, pain points, promising models in each sector, etc. to determine concrete insights and share takeaways on the tech investment landscape in Asia.
Areas of discussion: fintech, agtech, edtech, e-commerce, and frontier markets.

Digital Health in Asia: Leveraging Technology for Better, More Accessible Healthcare:

The healthcare industry has an innovative reputation; generating major scientific breakthroughs that improve lives in ways once not thought possible: advanced prosthetics, alleviating blindness and deafness, and curing illnesses once thought to be decisively terminal.
Simultaneously, although these ground breaking innovations exist, millions of people do not even have access to basic health care. Thus, the innovations the healthcare industry is famous for, do not address the glaring reality of thousands of people in Asia.
This workshop explores how the healthcare industry, and its accessibility and quality constraints, are ripe for disruption through digital health innovations.
