About the Organiser
Memeland by 9gag is partnering with the Newman Group to bring you an exciting web3 event in Hong Kong during 2-3 Nov, 2023.
Memeland is a web3-focused venture studio curated by the 9GAG team. We are building and investing in social products for community, with community. We are connecting creators and communities together through creativity, $MEME, and NFTs.
When we started 9GAG in 2008, we were nobody, and we knew nothing. We joined 500 Startups in 2011, raised seed funding, joined Y Combinator in 2012, and never stopped shipping. A decade later, we are still nobody, but 9GAG now has a global audience of 200 million across different social platforms.
