Continuing our venture with Alibaba Cloud, this year Alpha Momentum supports their startup contest Create@ 2019. Pooling startups from all over Indonesia divided into two categories, which are AIOT & new retail. There’s no doubt the giant backed group Alibaba is the expert when it comes to new retail, and through this contest we’re filtering potential new retail startups in Indonesia and select the two top winners to fly and compete with selected Chinese startups at Alibaba HQ in Hangzhou.
As part of the contest & our support for this program, on 27th September 2019 we hosted an awesome collaboration event with Alibaba Cloud called "How to deliver the perfect business pitch”. Presenting eligible speakers such as Kelvin Yim, the executive director of Alpha Momentum, Melvin Hade, as partner at Global Founders Capital - a Berlin based VC, and last but of course not the least, Evan Sebastian - Co founder of Fitco who just got acquired by the Fit Company, who’s currently also sitting as one a VP in the acquiring group.
We chose this topic to prepare all these registered startups for the pre finale of the contest on 10th October 2019 in Jakarta, where 10 selected startups from the two categories will have to present in front of the judges, consisting of investors & Alibaba representatives.
To make sure participants gained a fruitful training about how to do business pitch, we divided them into three groups with each speaker for a smaller focus group discussion where they can ask any questions directly to the speaker & don’t worry the speakers were rolling to each group every 15 to 20 minutes.
The discussion went pretty well and we hope the participants can do their pitch well in the future and participate in Alibaba Cloud Startup Contest: Create@2019We really appreciate our humble speakers for supporting Alpha Momentum & Alibaba Cloud, Kelvin Yim from @alphamomentum.id ,Melvin Hade from Global Founders Capital and Evan Sebastian from @thefit.company
