The 2019 Asia Hardware Battle Bangkok competition was a tough fight but one that’s close to the heart of the country of smiles and agriculture. The battle was organized with support from RISE Accelerator and held at True Digital Park’s newly open Innovation Hub. Both are partners of TechNode and co-organizers of Asia Hardware Battle 2019 Bangkok.

After an intense competition, one hardware startup rose above the rest and will be representing Bangkok at the grand final round of Asia Hardware Battle in Shanghai this October. In this competition, the winning startup was put through a series of stringent evaluation and step-by-step screening by several prominent judges:

– Dr. Jumpot Phuritatkul, Chief Technology Officer at True Digital Park
