Meeting Southeast Asia’s unicorns

Singapore is often called “Asia’s Silicon Valley” and indeed the small city state has one of the most creative and entrepreneurial population. In fact, 40% of all start-up acquisitions in the Southeast Asian region are happening in Singapore. The city state is ranked seventh in the world on the Global Innovation Index. Pursuing a vision to become a “Smart Nation”, Singapore’s government has committed billions of dollars to spur the country's research and development (R&D) capabilities, enterprise innovation, and entrepreneurship. Singapore’s hospitable environment for start-ups has attracted companies from all over the world. Various accelerators and incubators have further enriched the mix and dynamics of the ecosystem.

We are pleased to announce The Singapore Innovation Tour 2017.
