Singapore as a gateway to Southeast Asia

The Southeast Asia (SEA) region is a rapidly developing region for entrepreneurs and scale-up businesses, with a thriving technology market and ecosystem. Singapore is at the core of the regions’ attractiveness, with its highly skilled and educated workforce, superb business infrastructure and english speaking business environment. Singapore is already a well recognised global player when it comes to start-ups, with some 3,800 technology startups, and around 150 venture capital funds investing in startups in Singapore and in the region.

Through our programme, we offer businesses the opportunity to accelerate business growth in the Southeast Asian market, and connect you to the industry leaders, venture capitalists and key individuals that can help take your business to new heights.
