Held from August 13 through 15, the G Camp training program recruited the expertise of Silicon Valley veterans and business leaders for various panels and masterclasses spread across the three days, culminating in the pitch event on the last day.
The lineup, which included 10X Innovation Lab, Marvin Liao, and Mitchell Weinstock, all which have extensive experience in helping startups succeed globally. 10X Innovation Lab brings to the table years of experience in guiding and coaching upcoming startups, from their time working with a range of international accelerators hailing from as near as Japan, to further away in Brazil, amongst others.
Furthermore, former partner at 500 Startups Marvin Liao has over two decades of experience under his belt, mainly from his time in Silicon Valley as an executive and venture capitalist - proving him to be an asset in G Camp’s guest lineup. Another great addition is Mitchell Weinstock, who has worked with some of the biggest names in tech like Apple and Razer, and attained experience in the monetization of nascent technologies and new product marketing.
In response to the pandemic, the 2021 G Camp Boot camp was completely virtual due to safety protocols. Given the global situation, this year’s event was especially important to give these startups an opportunity to connect with local and international investors. Connecting and promoting local Asian startups to the international technology space was G Camp’s main goal with this event.
