    About ORIGIN

    ORIGIN by TechNode at SWITCH 2018 is TechNode's premier international content track about the latest developments in ASEAN-China's tech and startup scene. As China globalises, education about these Chinese companies, their philosophies, insights and contributions should be kept up to par with the attention that China is receiving. For a fast-growing ASIA, ORIGIN at Singapore Week of Innovation & TeCHnology (SWITCH) aims to facilitate more interaction and cross-pollination between China and SEA's sharing economy by bringing in the international industry leaders and technology-changers globally to Singapore.


    This year, in collaboration with National Research Foundation of Singapore (NRF), TechNode will be focusing largely on ASEAN-China's synergy, uncovering insights on the latest trends and developments in China’s vibrant tech scene and SEA's rapid growth landscape.


    A strong focus on contents in the format of invigorating panels and intimate fireside chats and potentially a VC Meetup session featuring VCs from China will encourage cross-sharing and mutual understanding that benefits everyone.
