The Echelon Asia Summit

The e27 team at the Echelon Asia Summit.

For the past six months my life at work has revolved around the Echelon Asia Summit – a tech and business event for startups, investors, and corporates in Singapore – and after two-and-a-half-days of hustle and bustle it has come to fruition. Since January the team has also travelled across 14 qualifying cities (over 93,000 kilometres, which is approximately two times the circumference of the Earth) in search of the TOP100 Startups, and throughout these months we toiled to communicate, to coordinate, as well as to perform.

At the end, it is a combination of elation, exhaustion, and excitement for the future.

There is so much more to my e27 experience nonetheless (which deserves another post altogether), and while the going has been rigorous there were so many learning points too. The excitement of large-scale conferences may lie in that sense of fulfilment at their meaningful conclusion, but for some of us the opportunities to improve is even more exciting. Observers pounce at mistakes or shortcomings, but oftentimes the organisers look forward eagerly to the next edition, for another chance to present a better programme.
