As 2018 comes to a close, we at e27 want to end on a high note with our newly minted learning programme, e27 Academy.

The e27 Academy is a three-day startup learning programme that is geared towards helping aspiring and early-stage founders. It includes one-on-one consultations and workshops, with local transport and food packaged together.

Today, we are pleased to announce that on top of the existing perksand benefits awaiting the participants, e27 Academy is now joining forces with Asia Pacific Telecom Group (APTG)!

The partnership aligns with e27 Academy’s mission to grow an online and offline platform for aspiring and early-stage startup founders, by building the right foundation through content, community, and coaching across Southeast Asia.

Founders, meet APTG

APTG is one of the major Telecom Operators in Taiwan, providing broadband, wireless, and fixed-line telecommunication services. In 2018, APTG launched their inaugural Accelerator Programme together with Institute for Information Industry from (III) Taiwan, with the hope of ramping up 5G innovation to strengthen Taiwan’s digital industry.
