Initiated by Alibaba Cloud, Apsara Startup Day is a series of satellite events taking place in Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia. Here’s the lineup for the Singapore event.

Launched in 2009 by Alibaba Cloud, the Apsara Conference is an annual event where partners, industry experts, and thought leaders gather to discuss how technology, digital intelligence, and innovation can be applied to grow and improve businesses.

2022 marks the 13th year that Apsara will be held. In addition to the flagship event organized in mainland China, satellite events—unified under the name Apsara Startup Day—will be held this year in three countries: Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia.

Apsara Startup Day will cover the latest tech trends unfolding in Southeast Asia’s startup ecosystems, such as Web3 and artificial intelligence. It will also be an occasion for Alibaba Cloud to celebrate the achievements of innovators in related fields, earmarked by the AsiaStar 10×10 campaign.
