KUDO Wins Big at Taiwan Innotech Expo and Doubles Down on APAC Infrastructure

(Thursday, October 20th, 2022. New York City, NY)- KUDO Inc., the multilingual meeting SaaS company used globally to staff and facilitate live and hybrid multilingual meetings and events, was named one of the top ten global startups at the government-sponsored Taiwan Innotech Expo. Days after, KUDO launched a new platform for the Greater Asia Pacific region, improving the infrastructure and scalability of their Asia- Pacific (APAC) offer for their growing client base.

Out of 25 countries and 119 different technologies, KUDO was selected for honorable mention along with ten other startups representing Japan, Germany, The UK, Taiwan, and Chile. Besides KUDO, virtually all winners provide a service or product in the semiconductor industry, highlighting the importance and need for accessible and reliable multilingual communication, regardless of the industry. KUDO co-founder Parham Akhavan, APAC team lead Aryeh Sternberg, and Alice Tuan were onsite at the Taiwan Innotech Expo to accept the award and represent KUDO at the Future Tech Pavilion (FUTEX) ceremony and presentation.

“We are excited to have been selected for this prestigious award,” said Fardad Zabetian, cofounder and CEO of KUDO, “We’ve been committed to increasing our presence in APAC, and we’re excited about our growth in one of the most linguistically diverse regions in the world. We’re only scratching the surface in terms of growth and opportunity.”

KUDO has recently invested in its APAC infrastructure by launching the new KUDO Asia platform to support its regional growth. The platform, based in Hong Kong and running on AWS, is accessible through a unique URL as of October 15th.

Due to ever-growing demand in the Asia Pacific, KUDO has added additional servers to its cloud infrastructure to improve speed, reduce latency, and increase the resiliency of its platform. The new platform will also enhance access and service quality for Mainland China users.

The last few years have shown APAC to be a moving force, specifically in the digital business space. Furthermore, APAC’s GDP accounts for a significant slice of the world’s GDP and is projected to account for 42% of the world’s GDP by 2040. With new businesses in APAC on the rise across all markets, KUDO remains committed to reducing communication frictions to promote inclusivity and engagement as they have been for the last few years with companies like Candela Asia Pacific and organizations like Global Migrations Lab and Angels of Impact.
