Silver Sponsor Garena
Headquartered in Singapore, Garena was founded in 2009 by Forrest Li and his friends as they aspired to transform their passion for entrepreneurship into a great company. Forrest named the company "Garena" – a play on the words "global arena” – in reference to his broader aspirations to connect people via the Internet. Garena has since grown swiftly to become a leading platform provider for online PC and mobile digital content, eCommerce and payments across Asia, serving millions of users.
In 2010, Garena launched its first product, Garena+, an online game and social platform for people to meet, chat and play games with one another. Since then, Garena has steadily innovated and diversified its business across the Internet platform to include BeeTalk (the first indigenous mobile social network in Southeast Asia), AirPay (a payments network providing accessible financial services in ASEAN) and Shopee (a social-first, mobile-centric C2C marketplace).
