Called the Boston Consulting Group Technology Media Telecom Summit, it will be held at INSEAD again after its success during its launch last year. It would feature speakers from BCG, Google, Facebook, Ubisoft, PayPal, and 3M, who will discuss consumer behaviour, innovation and gaming across Southeast Asia.
The event will feature a consumer technology e-commerce panel, whereby a discussion will be conducted on ‘e-Commerce in Southeast Asia’ with perspectives from Facebook, Google, BCG and more. A gaming panel will also explore the different business models, before concluding with the possible opportunities in the industry. This panel will feature representatives from Ubisoft, PayPal and Rock Nano.
Subsequently, there will be an innovation panel with 3M, which will discuss the future of technology. Lastly, INSEAD startups will be allowed to pitch to a panel of angel/ VC investors comprising individuals from 99.co and Golden Gate Ventures.

By bringing in top organisations in the technology, media and telecommunications space, we hope to inspire attendees to explore opportunities in these sectors.
