at the first regional Digital Winners Asia startup event by Telenor Group, it was Thailand’s TakeMeTour that took top honors after competing with seven other leading startups from Pakistan, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Thailand and Malaysia. Following the winning pitch, the team will return to their home market with 100,000 Norwegian Kroner in initial expansion funds, and a wealth of support, network and knowledge to expand their business into neighboring markets – the event’s overall theme.

Hosted in emerging tech hot-spot Yangon, Myanmar, Digital Winners Asia is the first Asia-wide startup event that pairs some of the top startup talent from Telenor Group’s leading accelerator programs across Asia and leaders in market expansion and entrepreneurship within a two-day learning and competition platform. The format also featured keynote discussions from across the startup and venture capital communities such as Google, Golden Gate Ventures and Telenor Group’s own innovation and investment arms of the company.

“Bringing together some of the brightest startups from across Asia in our first Digital Winners Asia event was not only inspiring, but an exciting indication of the extraordinary talent and growth in this region. All teams were strong and dynamic contenders,” says Johanna Staaf, Director of New Ventures, Telenor Group. “On a broader scale, having the ability to host such diverse groups under numerous innovative categories, in a market with a burgeoning tech future like Myanmar, is a true honor.”
