Catch on the latest updates and insights about the Assemblr ecosystem, immersive technology, and EdTech industry—all in one site.
Last March, we had the chance to visit the biggest oil supplier country in the whole world. Yes, we flew to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to attend Biban 2023—one of the biggest small-medium enterprises (SME) forums in the MENA region.
Approximately, there were around 100,000 visitors attended the five-day event on 9–13 March 2023, which took place at The Riyadh Front Exhibition & Conference Center.
This chance came to us through a sweet invitation from Techstars Hub71 Accelerator—which we took part in early 2021—to exhibit together in their booth along with other invited startups. And honestly, we couldn't be more proud to say that we became the only Indonesian startup at the event!
Our CEO Hasbi Asyadiq himself flew there to exhibit—and his experience was really eye-opening. Although there's quite a bit of limitation in terms of the spoken language, it didn't hinder his ultimate goal.
In fact, he got the chance to meet lots of prospective partners and discuss possible partnerships and business opportunities!
One fun fact: Biban also had a startup pitch competition, and Hasbi decided to participate right away—with no preparation at all. However, he managed to gain all the panelists' scores—which indicates a perfect score, according to the committee. We might not get any presents at all, but the experience itself was already rewarding!
All in all, we want to thank Techstars Hub71 Accelerator for the experience and for inviting us to the prestigious event, so we could penetrate our Assemblr ecosystem through a whole new market.
Looking forward to what's to come for our future endeavors! 🥳
