We conduct “TECH PLAN Demo Day” a showcase event for Deep-tech startups comprised from selected presenter,s decision maker level judges from large corporates with awards.

Why it’s these 4? Instead of looking at usual points such as “traction” or “finance” thats seen in normal business contest, we are focusing more on “Who we really can work with?” or “who may really change the world?”.
Before starting TECH PLAYER in 2014, we visited Universities like Stanford, UCB and some of startups like Facebook and Evernote in Silicon Valley. We realised how human network is functioning in here. Through here we got to know about startup supporting organizations such as Plug and Play Tech Center. Through our visit we realized the principles for startups support in Real-tech area were still immature. This why we wanted to focus on Real-tech field (such as Bio, Agri and etc) and support startups in these areas.
When nurturing startups they will need support from wide range of areas. They will need support from Universities, Large corporates, VCs and even Government agencies too. It is vital to create an ecosystem where these key players support these Real-tech startups in sustainable way. Hence we aim to create this.
