Corporations are a key stakeholder in our startup ecosystem. They play an instrumental role in fostering the growth of startups and innovation – particularly when it comes to building high-value B2B solutions. In an increasingly digitalised world, technology is no longer a good-to-have but a must-have. Through open innovation, more corporates are working with startups to enhance their offerings and build new ventures.
CorporACEtion is our initiative to help corporates network with and access the leading startup ecosystem in the region – Singapore.

We create these opportunities through our programmes and activities. By connecting corporates with our strong community of over 1,700 local startups and thousands of foreign startups with our international network over 17 cities, corporations can leverage cutting-edge technology for their innovation and growth needs.
