・HADO Roadshow Pitch
COMB+, Xinhuanet and other venture and media companies hosted the Blue Planet x Sino Track Innovation Camp as a powerful technological and cultural forum aimed to accelerate the future potential of seven startups from Russia, Japan, Spain and China.
The unique sponsorship of COMB+ as an incubator and Xinhuanet as a national news agency crosses conventional boundaries to create harmony between technology and culture. The purpose of this unique amalgamation is to help ground brilliant vision in down to earth ideas.
As the techno sport driving the future of sports, HADO not only brings cutting-edge Augmented Reality (AR) technology to real-world sports but also forges the dawn of a completely new sports culture.
meleap, inc. Executive Officer Lim Sing Kent shared CEO Hiroshi Fukuda’s lofty vision to make his childhood dream of firing energy balls from his hands a reality. Today, HADO gives almost magical power to not only players but also spectators and fans via technology on and off the court.

Executive Officer Lim Sign Kent was honored to be presented the first prize trophy by none other than the Steve Hoffman—chair of the judging panel and renowned CEO of Founder Space, one of the world’s leading incubators and accelerators.
