TranscribeMe off to DEMO Asia

TranscribeMe off to DEMO Asia

Journalists and lawyers may not feature on the list of most trustworthy occupations, but one Kiwi company is out to make their jobs a little easier.

TranscribeMe has been picked to present at the DEMO Asia startup launchpad in Singapore, winning the Asia-Pacific regional scholarship.

Currently in beta, TranscribeMe is an app that allows users to record meetings, interviews and dictation, and receive transcripts via email within 24 hours. They are transcribed by remote workers, and the company says it has a 98 percent quality guarantee.

Ten companies from the Asia-Pacific region are off to DEMO Asia, but TranscribeMe is the sole Kiwi representative.

TranscribeMe chief executive Alexei Dunayev says the chance to pitch at the techfest offers potential global exposure for the product.

“By leveraging DEMO Asia’s network, TranscribeMe will be able to reach out to a global audience. This includes future customers, global media, investors and potential strategic partners.”
