Unilever has announced the 30 start-ups and scale-ups to be part of the Unilever Foundry 30 South East Asia and Australasia (SEAA). Unveiled at the Millennial 20/20 conference in Singapore, the 30 start-ups selected demonstrate a ‘unique and exciting point of difference’, according to the Anglo-Dutch FMCG giant.
Companies selected include FOMO Pay, LoopMe, Picasso Labs, Shopback Singapore, and ZAP. During Millennial 20/20, the Unilever Foundry 30 SEAA will receive exposure to Unilever and other industry players in the marketing, retail and e-commerce sectors and be based at Unilever’s co-working space, Level 3.
“The Unilever Foundry 30 embodies Unilever’s commitment to South East Asia and Australasia and to working with start-up talent who we believe will have significant impact on the region,” said Barbara Guerpillon, Head of Unilever Foundry SEAA and Level3. “With 600 million people in South East Asia alone, we look forward to being a catalyst for members of the Unilever Foundry 30 to affect social, business and technological change in both developed and emerging markets. We see enthusiasm from early-stage companies as they gear up to capture opportunities in these markets and we welcome aspiring entrepreneurs to visit Level3, our co-working space at Unilever’s Singapore headquarters, to seize opportunities for collaboration and mentorship.”
