Australia-based Haymarket HQ, the go-to-market accelerator that helps founders access revenue and capital in new growth markets, has launched the Southeast Asia Tech Immersion Mission.

"Southeast Asia is the next frontier for tech companies and investors. It is home to the world's fastest-growing middle class, globally significant family offices and VCs, tech unicorns and a large pool of tech talent that is already powering some of Australia's tech companies today. This programme is designed to enable delegates to explore and connect with the region's ecosystem to tap into this wealth of opportunity it offers," it said in the statement.
