On the 9th May 2019, Gleematic was awarded for TOP 10 as “Second Category Winner” in Nanjing Overseas Talents Start-Up Contest that was held in Nanjing, China. Previously, Gleematic was a finalist in the preliminary competition in Singapore on 8th December 2018 with product of “White Collar Robots in the Office”.
The journey to be TOP 10 was an uphill challenge. Gleematic was previously chosen among 75 start-up that applied to Nanjing competition and became 16 short-listed candidates to pitch in Singapore, which resulted in Gleematic as finalist with a chance to go for final round in Nanjing.
The final round itself is an ultimate stage where 33 winners from 346 domestic and overseas entrepreneurial projects competed for the first, second, and third prizes. In addition to the fact, there was no shortage of 346 entrepreneurial project candidates including software and information services, biomedicine, energy-saving and environmental protection materials, artificial intelligence, future networks, etc. All of the 346 start-ups were originated from Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe, and China.
This competition was initiated by Nanjing Municipal Human Resources and Social Security Bureau, in collaboration with Techsumption and CHGG. The purpose of Nanjing Overseas Talents Start-up Contest as an overseas entrepreneurship competition is to promote the innovation and entrepreneurship in Nanjing, also to guide more ‘sea returnees’ to start Nanjing. This event presented bright opportunity for Singapore-based entrepreneurs and start-up companies to expand their business into China.
However, Nanjing Overseas Talents Start-Up Contest is a very good opportunity for a start-up company like us to spread and broaden our wings outside Singapore. Gleematic is sincerely thankful to the organizer’s facilitator and the Nanjing Government for this honourable award.
