In a first-of-its-kind partnership, Jetstar teamed up with Tech in Asia to create the High Altitude Conference – Asia’s first inflight conference. The conference brought startups and investors together at 36,000 feet on Jetstar flight 3K204 from Jakarta to Singapore on Monday 14 May.

What went down at the Conference

While in the air, Tech in Asia attendees had a fruitful journey learning from industry experts, while startups also got to pitch their ideas to investors strategically seated next to them – speed dating style.

The 60-minute inflight programme saw quickfire speeches by Aldi Adrian Hartanto, Head of Investments at Mandiri Capital and Jamie Lin, Founding Partner of AppWorks – Asia’s Leading Startup Accelerator.

Aldi shared insights on how regional startups can collaborate with Indonesia’s largest financial service group to scale their businesses, while Jamie shared the three most important traits of successful startup founders. In his capacity as Founding Partner of Appworks, Jamie has worked with 323 active startups and 780 founders in its alumni network.

Jan-Paul Jeffrey, Jetstar Regional Marketing Manager, Southeast Asia, mentioned that the conference was a unique opportunity to create something innovative and exciting for attendees and investors.
