Asia Technology Entrepreneurship Conference

ATEC: Harvard | Columbia | Stanford | MIT


Please join us for the inaugural Asia Technology Entrepreneurship Conference (ATEC). ATEC is an annual not-for-profit technology entrepreneurship conference organized by the Hong Kong alumni associations of Harvard, Columbia, and MIT, and the South China alumni association of Stanford. The mission of ATEC is to foster technology entrepreneurship in Asia. ATEC 2019 will feature our annual ATEC Startup Competition, which will showcase some of the most promising entrepreneurs Asia has to offer. The 10 selected contestant startups will each present a 5-minute pitch to a panel of judges comprised of alumni VC
investors and to an expected audience of 400+ attendees including the alumni of Harvard, Columbia, Stanford and MIT as well as our non-alumni friends. The audience and the judging panel will vote to select 3 ATEC 2019 Startup Competition Winners. ATEC 2019 will also feature a distinguished keynote speaker
and four 15-minute TED style presentations by domain experts.
