Out of the 29, there are also a few that are based in Asia, regardless of place of incorporation, including Korea-based video ad maker Shakr, Hong Kong-based online shop creator Shopline and Thailand-based platform for yoga enthusiasts YogaTrail. For the record, Shopline and YogaTrail have both participated in e27’s flagship tech conference Echelon.
Raymond Yip, CEO, Shopline, said in an official statement, “The support of the numerous advisors and mentors at 500 would help us further our product and methodologies at light speed. While we are taking this as a big win for Shopline, we understand that our ultimate goal is to build a product that brings real value to our customers.”
Shopline is a service that allows non-tech-savvy merchants in Asia to launch beautiful, self-branded, web and mobile online shops in minutes.
