A little background – PITCH is a competition for the top 40 startups that applied. They will present in front of distinguished investor panels, influential media, and thousands of attendees. Startups will battle it out across 2 days for a chance to present on the Main Stage and be crowned “Winner of PITCH 2015″.

 

Now let’s hear from the guys at Google…

Not so long ago in September 1998, Google was also a startup.  We had an incredibly audacious idea, which was to organise and manage the world’s information.  Back then, to be successful, ideas needed costly and complex infrastructure as well as people to manage the infrastructure. google Over time, we have built the world’s largest computing infrastructure to bring our ideas to life, from Search to Gmail to Youtube.  Today, Google is essentially an infrastructure company with fantastic UI. googl But we never forgot where we come from, and that is why we are so excited to join RISE this year and offer our infrastructure, Google Cloud Platform, to startups here in APAC. Our goal is to help startups build and scale on Google Cloud Platform, and we want to surround you with the necessary resources to accelerate your startup and infrastructure. Google is happy to offer the Google Cloud Platform Startup Pack to the winner of PITCH. This includes USD$100,000 worth of free credit for one year, applicable to all Google Cloud Platform products. Google Cloud Platform provides the building blocks so you can develop quickly, go to market quickly and scale quickly. Companies like Snapchat, Zulily, Wix, Khan Academy and Redbus all relied on Google Cloud Platform to achieve their goals.
