The three winners will receive cash prizes, with the champion getting the chance to be a part of AIRmaker’s accelerator programme.

1. Clef Technology | IoT
Founded by Jason Ng, Clef Technology is an IoT startup based in Taiwan that provides an acoustic leakage detection system with non-invasive installation for liquids or gases pipeline.
Pipeline leakage is a serious issue. nd with aging pipelines, leaks are often an unavoidable difficulty for pipeline operators that require manual intervention, which can be costly and time-consuming. To solve this problem, Clef Technology system has specially designed algorithms coupled by acoustics processing techniques to ensure a high degree of accuracy plus low rates on false alarm.
Jason, founder and CEO of Clef Technology, is originally from Malaysia. When asked about why choosing Taiwan to start up his own business instead of going back to Malaysia, he replied, “I am a tech guy and want to build a tech company. The technology of Taiwan is BEST in the world. I can get lots of tech resources in Taiwan easily compared with Malaysia. The most important thing is, I LOVE Taiwan very much.”
Clef Technology is currently looking for fundraising to further improve their product and bring it to the pipeline inspection market.
