Startup Europe and Startups.be are organising a mission to Singapore
From Monday 11th April until Friday 15th April, Startups.be is organising a mission to Singapore!
Singapore is renowned for being the forefront regional business and trade centre in Asia, its strong position in world capital markets, and its remarkable development history. Singapore’s government is perhaps the most proactive government in the world when it comes to developing the tech industry – it pumps tons of money into grants and initiatives which has resulted in it being lauded as “Asia’s Silicon Valley”. As the center of global economic activity gravitates increasingly to East Asia, Singapore’s role will further grow, providing huge opportunities for emerging and developing businesses.
This mission will be a week-long programme involving networking with the local startups, meeting with the local Belgian/EU community and understanding the legal guidelines and financial infrastructures in the region.
We’ll visit public agencies encouraging technological innovation and businesses such as iDA and A*STAR, Singtel’s investment branch Innov8, Golden Gate Ventures, the Google offices, local incubators such as The Hub, iText (recently opened office in Singapore), and more!
One day of the week (Tuesday) is set aside as either a free day for personal business meetings, or for those wishing to take the opportunity to learn about the Asian startup scene, to visit TechInAsia.
The participation fee is €450 for the first participant per startup, and €350 thereon.
As an added bonus, we are also providing discounted booths and free entrance tickets for InnovFest Unbound — 17th & 18th May, held in the iconic Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.
