Beta & Beyond Innovation Series Debuts in Singapore Posted at 0:00, Fri, 24 April 2015 in Industry Insights

Following a successful run of events in Australia, we’re excited to announce that the Beta & Beyond Innovation Series will be making its debut in Singapore this month.

The series is the brainchild of MitchelLake’s Jon Tanner and Rob Kinkade from Accenture, our co-presenting partner for this series. The inaugural Beta & Beyond was held in Sydney & Melbourne in 2013 and since then we’ve held over 12 of these events, typically as an intimate dinner, with Singapore being a more informal session over networking and drinks. The series is expanding, with us recently introducing the format to Canberra, and with an event in Auckland currently in planning phase.

We’re pleased to be hearing from three exciting companies at the Singapore installation: Google, PlaceAR and Grab Taxi. Google need no introduction, however what they will share across their start-up mentality approach to business will be new to most people. PlaceAR is a geo-located social messaging app, utilising AR technology. It’s yet to launch, and we can’t wait for it to provide numerous opportunities for industries including tourism. Grab Taxi is Singapore’s challenger to Uber, and we’re looking forward to showcasing this local company.

MitchelLake and Accenture will be co-hosting this event on April 29th. If you’re interested in attending please contact us at
