Beam And Go wins inaugural Dsion Startup Challenge

Beam And Go, a three-year-old startup that allows Filipinos who are working overseas to remit money in the form of vouchers won $15,000 in cash after beating nine other peers.

Beam And Go’s e-vouchers allow the families of foreign workers to redeem goods and services, such as groceries, mobile phone top-ups and health insurance. Taking the cash out of remittance means that family members are unable to fund bad habits like gambling, drugs or alcohol.

Lendor, a startup that created a rental market place, came in second, snagging $3,000.

Good For Food, a firm that supplies smart bins that can document the kind of food that are thrown away at restaurants to reduce food waste, finished third, pocketing $2,000.

Finalists also have access to a pool of S$80,000 in incubation fund, grants and services offered by event partners such as Founders Space and JJ Venture.
