Bangkok Meetup: Startup Lessons from Evernote



Hey folks! Our Tech in Asia Meetup events are rolling along, and next we are heading to the capital of the land of smiles – Bangkok. For those of you who are interested to connect and learn more about the startup space in Thailand, this is the right event for you.

We have invited Tiang Lim Foo, who drives market development at Evernote, where he focuses in developing new markets in APAC through partnerships and localized marketing initiatives. We will be having a coffee chat session with him, touching on the startup lessons he learned during his time at Evernote. Tiang Lim will also be sharing more about Evernote’s development in Southeast Asia.

Besides our coffee chat session with Tiang Lim, we are also looking for startups who are interested to pitch at this Meetup! If you have the guts to pitch in front of about 100 people, send me a note. We have slots for about three to five startups to pitch.
