Updated: Apr 24
In the event of the "SelectUSA Tech APAC Summit" which is held as the 190th anniversary of USA-Thai friendship, Call Me Today has won the competition as a Burmese representative with a pitch for Affordable Telecounseling.
Affordable Telecounseling is the concept that provides online counseling services for mental well-being to beneficiaries by bridging the cultural competence of native counselors to their clients to provide therapy for different mental health problems and psychosocial support. We believe people feel better and safe if they communicate in native language during therapeutic sessions.
"SelectUSA Tech APAC Summit" is a trade event that is held yearly, commemorating the 190th anniversary of the USA-Thai friendship. This event supports better opportunities for many companies and entrepreneurs from APAC. A considerable number of Asia Pacific tech companies, investors, and entrepreneurs attended the event as well. It’s also a big stage of pitching for companies that introduce tech-based business and innovation from various fields. The winning company from the competition will get the opportunity to attend the "SelectUSA Investment Summit Event," which will be held in the US in May 2023.
The SelectUSA Investment Summit is the highest-profile event dedicated to promoting foreign direct investment (FDI) in the United States. The SelectUSA Investment Summit is the top event in the United States for FDI promotion, connecting investors, companies, economic development organizations (EDOs), and industry experts to seize every opportunity available to make investment deals happen through U.S. investments. The 2023 SelectUSA Investment Summit returns to National Harbor, Maryland, from May 1-4, 2023, to establish new connections and opportunities to grow through investing in the U.S.

As the winner of the competition, Call Me Today will attend the SelectUSA Investment Summit in the United States in May. This would be the first Myanmar mental health business presentation on the global stage.
At SelectUSA Tech APAC Summit 2023, the Planning and Business Development Manager from "Call Me Today" was sharing her experiences as,
"It was a great opportunity for a tech-based mental health counseling platform from Myanmar to present and introduce to other tech and business professionals across APAC at SELECTUSA Tech APAC Summit 2023. Through our team's hard work even during critical times, it has now been enhanced to scale up our work by entering the global market with our "Affordable Telecounseling" platform. We look forward to pitching in Washington D.C. in May 2023.”
She continues, “We have presented about Affordable Telecounseling at SelectUSA Tech APAC Summit 2023 as the very first representative of Myanmar-based mental health counseling service platform. As a developing country like Myanmar, we are very proud to have an opportunity to attend and present at a huge international trade event like this. We are also really happy about winning the first prize in the competition. Now, we have obtained the golden ticket to attend the "SelectUSA Investment Summit Event" in the U.S. in May and also to enter the Global Market to serve more people.
