Wayfarer joins JETRO x Techstars 2022 Startup City Accelerator Program

Wayfarer was chosen as a select group to join the 2022 Startup City Accelerator program hosted online by JETRO x Techstars!

As part of JETRO (Japan External Trade Organization) x Techstars Startup City Acceleration Program. Over three months, we connected with founders, business leaders and thought leaders to learn from the best and grow our business.  The end of the program saw us showcase our story and demo on, Southeast Asia’s leading tech community, through a live online Zoom.

We’re looking forward to the growth opportunities that come from being a part of this incredible experience; thank you to everyone who got involved!
