The Australian Trade and Investment Commission unveils the eighth cohort of market-ready start-ups at the Landing Pad program in Singapore.
Each Landing Pad assists market-ready Australian start-ups and scale-ups in accessing some of the world’s most renowned innovation ecosystems.
Austrade Singapore trade commissioner Taliessin Reaburn said: "The Landing Pad in Singapore is excited to show these start-ups what Singapore has to offer. They will be able to experience the diverse culture and exposure to global business practices, especially from Southeast Asia.
"The start-ups will also be exposed to a more advanced investment and venture capital space, and have access to new clients and sources of revenue.”
Reaburn said by connecting these start-ups with investors, enterprises and government agencies, "we are helping them accelerate their growth internationally. We believe that the Australian start-ups will be able to offer world-class expertise to Singapore and the region".
Singapore Landing Pad manager Samantha Mark said, “Scaling up requires founders to develop new personal and business skills, and often challenge their thinking towards running the business. It involves reaching out and making connections across the industry and marketplace, which could be challenging when they endeavour to penetrate into new markets.
“We are heartened to see the wealth of knowledge and networks our past cohorts had gained and are confident that this cohort will benefit from the program as much as the previous.”
