We are thrilled to announce that we are working with X-PITCH 2021 to provide startups with access to e27 Pro.

X-PITCH 2021 is the XGames for startups wherein participants will be going through three levels of pitching (15 seconds, 60 seconds, and 3minutes) for a chance to win up to US$1 million investment prizes.

Organised by Taiwan Accelerator, X-PITCH highlights the New Normal in the post-pandemic world; participating teams should focus on applications and services that enable digital transformation around five major categories of the New Normal. Nine awards will be presented on the Grand Finale Day on November 11, 2021.

This partnership with Taiwan Accelerator for X-PITCH 2021 is just the first in our initiative to work with accelerators and startup ecosystem enablers to further assist startups’ engagements and conversations with regional investors.

Opportunities to build your investor network

Over the past couple of months, we have served over 3,000 connections between startups and investors through e27 Pro’s Connect feature.

In this new normal, there is a distinctive lack of ability for different parts of the Southeast Asia tech ecosystem to reach out to each other.

We used to have thousands of offline activities happening monthly, connecting various local and regional ecosystems, connecting startups, corporates, governments, and investors. Even our very own Echelon used to bring in more than 10,000 people over two days to achieve these meaningful, often serendipitous, connections.

This is a real pain, especially if you are new to the ecosystem and do not have existing networks that can introduce you to new ones. Online webinars and conferences seem to alleviate this issue temporarily, but we find that the startup ecosystem requires more.

e27’s mission has always been to empower entrepreneurs with the tools to build and grow their companies. With e27 Pro, we’re going back to our roots and helping startups with their fundraising by providing a platform that allows not only discovery but a tool to begin conversations with investors and update them on their progress.

With over 300 verified active investors on the platform, e27 Pro members have in their reach the ability to find, connect, and engage with investors that are right for them (not a Pro member yet? Start here).

Get the chance to connect with Taiwan Accelerator

Taiwan Accelerator is formerly known as Taiwan Elevator Pitch, where contestants made their pitch in a high-speed elevator ride at TAIPEI 101.

They are the first seed accelerator in Taiwan and an active early-stage investment firm. Taiwan Accelerator is onboard e27 Pro, and members can reach out to them via Connect.

Any e27 Pro member can simply visit Taiwan Accelerator’s profile and click the Connect button to get the ball rolling.
