Last week a crowd of nearly 800 gathered in Singapore for Startups in Asia, a 2-day Penn Olson event featuring discussions with seasoned Asian entrepreneurs and investors and a pitch competition among 20 startups.

The startups ranged from CloudyRec, for connecting your app to the cloud, to Vibease, a vibrator plus an app store full of “fantasies” for women.

The Startup Arena winners were as follows:

    • 1st place: Teamie (Singapore): A social learning platform where students can collaborate, study, and take tests. The team won $10,000.
    • 2nd place: Innova Tech (Singapore): A thin card that slips inside your valuables and alerts you when you leave them behind
    • 3rd place: Start Now (Singapore): A platform that connects volunteers with nonprofits
    • 4rd place: Waffle (Korea): A wifi service that venues can offer free in exchange for users taking a quiz or posting on social media
    • 5th place: Piktochart (Malaysia): A tool for creating customized infographics
