Why Tech in Asia is the best place to get your startup covered
Exactly. That's what we hope for! So whenever a writer writes about a startup, she can invite the startup to take questions. There are a lot of other use case, such as inviting a Topic Expert to a particular discussion

Simple. They will be notified whenever there's a question/comment. It's something like an AMA in every post.
