Tech in Asia Expands Into Bangalore
Dated: December 01, 2015
Media company Tech in Asia has announced its expansion to India, two years after it started covering the Indian startup scene on its main website. The publication, which was founded in Singapore in 2010 and has a reported one million plus unique monthly browsers, has become more than just a website. Like TechCrunch and Re/code have become successful events businesses, with Re/code’s event arm expected to generate $12 million in revenue this year, Tech in Asia too has developed a solid reputation for startup events across the Asia region, with annual conferences in Tokyo, Jakarta, and Singapore.
“Through our own data and editorial coverage, we have witnessed astounding growth in investor attention and funding towards the Indian market,” says Andrew Wang, Chief Operating Officer at Tech in Asia. “Our move into Bangalore reaffirms our commitment to serving and building Asia’s startup ecosystem, through quality editorial coverage and premier events that connect Asia’s tech ecosystem.”
Tech in Asia has maintained an editorial presence in India since 2014, spearheaded by passionate journalist Malavika Velayanikal. As part of its expansion efforts, editorial output from India has been ramped up, with six full-time writers now living and breathing in the protean world of Indian tech startups. Comprising a judicious mix of the latest news and detailed analyses, commentaries and practical infographics, this increased output serves to bridge knowledge gaps both within the Indian ecosystem as well as for outsiders seeking to better understand the Indian market.
