The insightful sessions were followed by two engaging workshops held by Microsoft and IBM respectively. 'Startup World Cup - Regional Competition' featured 18 startups showcasing their ideas and innovations to an esteemed panel of judges. 'Facilio' won the competition, who will now receive a free trip to compete at the grand finale 'Startup World Cup' 2019 in San Francisco, for US$ 1 Million grand prize.

The governments and businesses that will lead this will be the next global leaders in a fast shifting connected industry 4.0 economy."
