When conference doors opened at 9am, the excitement was palpable. Attendees started streaming in and many of these early birds flocked to Bootstrap Alley to meet this year’s batch of rising tech startups.
From an award-winning video production company to a virtual webcam app, there were definitely plenty to see. But these four startups caught our eye and were amongst the crowd favourites at Tech in Asia Singapore 2017 (Day 1).
Breadnbeyond was certainly one of the first few to catch my attention with their free giveaway of an explainer video – afterall, who doesn’t love freebies, right? While some may think they’re in the food tech business by their name, Breadnbeyond is actually an award-winning explainer video production company.
Best known for their 2D animated explainer videos, Breadnbeyond offers eight distinct animated styles for their clients. And if you’re tight on time, you can be assured you’ll get your video in 25 business days (or less)!
While walking down the Bootstrap Alley aisles, it’s hard not to miss Agentbong’s roaming mascot. Coupled with their intriguing product name, they did draw a fair bit of attention to their booth.
And if you were wondering, ‘bong’ means help in Cantonese. If you’re busy and want to look for someone to help with your cleaning, cooking, grocery shopping, or even pet-sitting, Agentbong can do that by matching you with their database of part-time helpers.

With their large ‘phone’ screen, cupcakes and flashy booth setup, Zeemart certainly left a striking impression on the attendees. Their mission to shake up the way buyers and suppliers trade today did too.
