ORIGIN Conference is a Southeast Asia-focused exclusive event at BEYOND Week that brings together industry leaders, investors, and innovators to discuss the rapidly evolving landscape of Southeast Asia’s technology ecosystem. ORIGIN will feature an exciting lineup of keynote speeches, panel discussions, and showcases, providing valuable insights into the region’s most promising industries and emerging opportunities.

Dr. GANG Lu, Co-Founder of BEYOND and Chief Executive Officer of TechNode Group, will kick off ORIGIN Conference with a keynote about unlocking the potential of Southeast Asia as a  rapidly evolving region.

“Southeast Asia has become an increasingly important player in the global technology landscape, with the region experiencing rapid growth and innovation in recent years.

Participants can look forward to engaging panel discussions on a wide range of topics, including discussions about digital transformation, the next generation of unicorns, artificial intelligence, electric vehicles and mobility, healthcare, sustainability, market opportunities, and the investment landscape in the Southeast Asia region. Some of the exemplary companies that will be present include Gobi Partners, Kairous Capital, Carsome, Aerodyne, Pluang, FastCo, Enlitho, and Wellous.
