Echelon 2011 will be a two-day, double-track event that happens in Singapore in June with an expected attendance of more than 1,000 delegates; a demo pit of more than 40 startups and companies; and workshops and fringe events.
I visited some start-up company booths:
- Roadhop: searching for bus stations,
- Movend: meet Zi Yong and Tiang Lim Foo
- Epsilon mobile: founded by Vo Hoang Hai
- Fetch fans: location based targeting. analytics.
- Playmoolah: no virtual money, with measurable goals. content provider.
Meet with Toan, Jason, Trung Hieu and Quang Vinh. Great to meet these guys. Impressive with Notabasement. A Vietnamese branding start-up likely.
I have to confess that I am interested in many things. I attend CS3216 lecture of prof Ben Leoung. I always contemplate that people judge you based on what you do. I just regret that I didn’t have many free time in my school to pursue my real interest. I hate the rigid scheme NUS opts to my curriculum.
Come on, I need more free time to empower and prove myself. Whoever on Earth could imagine that now I studied connecting wire on breadboard and soldering, given the fact that half a month later I will start web programming.
Pissed off because of EE2001 schedule. I have to sacrify the whole morning session tmr to finish the lab. Hopefully can catch up with Echelon at 4pm. Can’t wait for the party bar @Clark Quay.
Undoubtedly Playmoolah beats other startup and win the competition.
Unsurprisingly my boss is partner with Playmoolah. She also gave some thoughts in panel discussion of education. Remember that main users are children and teachers. Building content management is necessary but not the thing we wants first. Make a cool thing and people will love it anyway.
