These Start-Ups Will Give Facebook A Run for Their Money

Echelon Asia Summit 2015 is here in Singapore, this time
with more start-ups and exciting innovation than ever before

The
annual gathering of the brightest International start-ups and investors is here
once again with Echelon Asia Summit 2015, brought to you by e27. This year,
more drone, Smart home application and virtual reality stimulator start-ups
were exhibiting at the event. Aside from these, Echelon Asia Summit 2015 has
also handpicked the Top 100 start-ups that are set to represent the next wave
of innovation and entrepreneurship of Asia. 

Amongst
the myriad of amazing start-ups showcased at the event, we managed to suss out
four start-ups that caught our eye and could potentially be the next Fortune
500 companies. Who knows?

 

dailyHOTEL (Korea)

Ever
needed to book a hotel at the very last minute because of a layover or an
impromptu trip? Well, that’s what Korean start-up dailyHOTEL is all about. This
is a Smartphone application with the sole purpose of enabling the user to book
their accommodation as quickly, cheaply and with as little hassle as possible.

We
tested out the app and it was really pretty cool. Within just less than
20seconds you are able to book a chosen hotel at a rather heavily discounted
rate! Although it is a bummer that they are currently only available in Korea,
dailyHOTEL is looking to expand its services to the rest of Asia within the
next couple of months. So do look out for them!

dailyHOTEL
is available for both Android and Apple iOS devices.

 

Alfred (Taiwan)

Ever
wanted to purchase a home CCTV for home security reasons or just because you
are a possessive pet-parent? Well, you no longer have to purchase a CCTV for
all that now. With a Smartphone application named Alfred, your spare Smartphone
can now be repurposed into a portable CCTV for your home that can be fully
controlled with a mobile app! How cool is that? You get to save money and
recycle what would have been technological waste at the same time.

Alfred
is available for both Android and Apple iOS devices.

 

Epicurio (Singapore)

Handpicked
as one of the Top 100 start-ups at the Echeleon Asia Summit 2015 is Epicurio, a
mobile application for the wine lovers. Whether you are just a recreational
wine drinker or wine connoisseur, Epicurio is for every wine enthusiast in
Singapore. With the mobile application you are able to give wine reviews, rate,
find new wines, read honest reviews submitted by other wine enthusiasts on
wines you have or haven’t tried and you get to buy it via the app as well. Best
part of the entire app we feel is that, delivery time is extremely efficient.
The wines get delivered to you within the same day or the next day, no more
hassle and just in time for dinner!

Epicurio
is currently only available for Apple iOS devices.

 

RecomN.com (Malaysia)

Ever
had your sink choked and had to call up a ton of numbers just to get the best
quotation for your home emergency? Well, you no longer have to waste precious
time dialling up one handy-man at a time to ask for quotations with RecomN.com.

With
RecomN.com, it helps you save time when in search for a quotation. All you have
to do is key in what you need, where you are located and just a few other
filter options which would last no longer than a minute, hit the search button
and wait! You will receive different sets of quotations from professionals sent
to you within the next couple of hours. It is really that simple.

RecomN.com
is currently based only in Malaysia.

 

Echelon
Asia Summit 2015 will run over a period of two-days, from the 23 to 24 June and
is held at the Singapore Expo.
