Our story

Disrupting Asia was born with the idea to connect and promote Asia’s striving entrepreneur scene in short, those who are disrupting Asia with new and fresh ideas, projects and companies.

Asia and the Pacific, according to the World Bank, is currently the fastest-growing region in the world with an annual GDP- growth of 6-7%. Just over the past 5 years, Asia has seen the births of multiple unicorns that disrupted whole industries and are currently becoming serious world players. Young entrepreneurs starting successful companies despite strong cultural pressures and foreign investors are figuring that Asia is a hotbed for new investments.

By combining media, events and field-expertise, we are on a mission to help, connect and grow the startup ecosystems in Asia. We are constantly delivering inspiring interviews, insightful podcasts and news articles to keep you in the loop about what currently happens in the Asian startup community.
