Haymarket HQ’s mission is to support entrepreneurs (you!) to grow into Asia. We do that by offering startups access to coworking space, mentors and investors and a community of like-minded entrepreneurs across APAC. Make that first step into Asia, from home.
Through events, workshops and meetups we help startups become aware of - and capitalise on- the opportunities Asia has to offer.
We actively connect startups to mentors, investors and relevant parties that can support their growth into Asia.
An international community of like-minded entrepreneurs that support each other, share expertise and connections and that serves as a two-way street between OZ and Asia.
