Future Travel Experience and JetBlue Technology Ventures have teamed up once again to hold a Startup Competition and Showcase during Future Travel Experience Asia EXPO 2018, which will take place in Singapore on 13 and 14 November. Four startups will be selected to exhibit in the Startup Showcase and one will be crowned the “Best New Startup” at the show. The competition is designed to help discover startups whose solutions can help improve end-to-end customer experiences and business performance for air transport industry stakeholders.
The competition is open to any startup worldwide that is Series A or earlier and incorporated within the last five years.
The grand prize is recognition at Future Travel Experience Asia EXPO 2018, Asia’s biggest free to attend passenger experience and business performance expo (13-14 November, Singapore). The winner will also be presented with two free round-trip JetBlue flights.
Four startups will receive the opportunity to participate in the Startup Showcase at Future Travel Experience Asia EXPO. This includes free entrance into the show, an opportunity to pitch to attendees from the EXPO Stage, and display space in the Startup Showcase in the exhibition hall.

Any startup that enters the contest and meets the entry requirements but is not selected as one of the top four startups will be entitled to a discounted exhibition package (US$2,295/booth) or discounted First Class delegate pass (US$1,295/person).
The top four startups will be selected by a panel of judges from JetBlue Technology Ventures and Future Travel Experience. The judges will be looking for startups that have the potential to significantly improve end-to-end customer experiences and business performance for air transport industry stakeholders (such as airlines and airports).
The overall winner will be chosen by an attendees’ vote at FTE Asia EXPO 2018, and the winner will be announced at the FTE Asia Awards ceremony on Tuesday 13 November.
