Meet the 8 startups attending Innovate UK’s incubator programme in Singapore

The Innovate UK Global Incubator Programme, which aims to foster collaborations between UK companies and Singapore’s vibrant startup ecosystem, has returned to Singapore.

This year, the programme’s focus is sustainability and cleantech.

Innovate UK Global Incubator Programme is an initiative between Singapore Deep Tech Alliance (SDTA), Better Earth Ventures (BEV), and Innovate UK.

Eight UK-based startups have been selected for the programme. The 8-month incubation will feature two immersion visits to Singapore, one-on-one coaching, mentoring, and expert sessions focused on their product development and go-to-market strategy.

The participating startups will also get an opportunity to leverage SDTA’s and BEV’s professional networks and resources.

Jon Hazell, Partnership Manager – Global Incubator at Innovate UK, remarked: “As a hub of sustainability and innovation, Singapore offers a fertile ground for global ventures seeking to make a difference. Understanding the intricacies of the local business landscape is key to navigating not just Singapore but the broader ASEAN markets. Our collaboration with SDTA and BEV marks a pivotal milestone for UK deep-tech companies, facilitating a deeper understanding of Southeast Asia’s unique dynamics and fostering collaboration & innovation with fellow industry pioneers to drive impactful solutions and enrich the regional ecosystem.”
