The start-ups, along with more than 15 other new technology and start-up teams, were part of the joint ACE-ETPL Investor Forum held at Biopolis on June 1. Aimed at encouraging more budding entrepreneurs and start-ups to embrace technology, the forum attracted more than 300 participants that included angel investors, entrepreneurs, incubators and academic institutions. This event is a multi-agency initiative to support local enterprise with a meaningful platform for local technology start-ups and enterprise to meet, work and draw on the collective knowledge of experienced entrepreneurs, business mentors and investors.
Mr Philip added, "Platforms like these allow public and private start-ups to come together, enable interested parties to look at early stage technology and for scientists to receive validation on the industry relevance of their work. We are pleased to partner ACE to expand the reach of the Investor Forums that we have organised since 2006. We believe more of such collaborations among agencies and companies will enhance the vibrancy of the ecosystem and inspire more entrepreneurial mindsets and improve start-up success".
