Huawei has announced a new initiative through which it will pour US$100 million in funding and supporting new startups in Asia. The firm made the announcement at the inaugural HUAWEI CLOUD Spark Founders Summit, which was held simultaneously in Singapore and Hong Kong.
According to Huawei, the investment would be disbursed through its Spark Program in the Asia Pacific region, an initiative targeted at building sustainable startup ecosystems within the region over the next 3 years.
