We first introduced Startup Disruptor Arena (SDA) as part of the main stage program in 2017 and it has been a big hit at Wild Digital since then! The one-of-a-kind platform has showcased the region's most innovative and disruptive startups who could be the "next big thing", like StashAway, MoneyMatch, Kioson, RoundUp Analytics and CARE Concierge.
Since Wild Digital Indonesia 2019, we have taken it up a notch and given SDA a new face lift! In an exclusive partnership with Startup World Cup, the largest global startup pitch competition helmed by Pegasus Tech Ventures, the SEA regionals will be happening during Wild Digital SEA 2020 — from 3-6 November on our virtual Main Stage. The regional finalist will then go on to compete with 40+ other finalists at San Francisco for a grand investment prize of USD 1million.
Startup World Cup consists of a global series of startup conferences and pitch competitions that spread across 40+ countries organized by Pegasus Tech Ventures, a US Silicon Valley VC. Startups will first compete in regional events across Australia, North America, South America, Asia, Africa and Europe, and regional finalists will go on to compete for the grand investment price in San Francisco!
The Startup World Cup Grand Finale has featured prominent figures from the entrepreneurship community, including Steve Wozniak, Co-Founder of Apple; Marc Randolph, Founder of Netflix; Reid Hoffman, Founding CEO of LinkedIn as well as top venture capital firms – Softbank, GE Ventures, 500 Startups, Techstar, Kleiner Perkins and more.
