1 GLOBAL INNOVATIVE START-UP PROGRAMME Helping global innovative & tech start-ups grow & scale in Singapore & beyond.

2 INTRODUCTION Highly innovative and technology-based start-ups, at some stage of their development, need to scale quickly and grow globally. This international go-to-market process can be challenging, due to a combination of market, human resources and financial constraints. We understand the start-up and internationalization challenges and are here to help. OBJECTIVE The objective of this programme is to help foreign start-ups grow and develop their regional base in Singapore - without and before, having their own full-fledged operations and headcount. We operate like extensions of these start-ups, by representing them in this region and executing their strategic plans. In this way, foreign start-ups can immediately plug into the local ecosystem and have a strategic presence in Singapore and the region. All without the high cost of hiring or relocating a permanent headcount and wasting precious time in learning about the local markets and building relationships on the ground. Get up to speed quickly, with better traction and lower costs.
