As many as eight startups led by the Kerala Startup Mission (KSUM) have scaled their business to the international market by pitching their ideas and products at Southeast Asia’s largest and most exciting innovation festival held at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.
A few of them have also got invitations from various countries to introduce their products. Based on the discussions held in Singapore, further steps will be taken to showcase their products in the respective countries, the KSUM has said.
