The Singapore
Program

The Singapore
Program

Building on the proven concept and learnings from the Startup Creasphere program in Munich, we have established a new location in Singapore in 2020 to tap into local Asian-Pacific startup ecosystems, and to foster digital health innovations in the region.

We offer participating startups and corporate partners a well-organized co-creation framework to get the maximum out of their time-boxed cooperation (in the so-called batches).

Structure

Selection

Leveraging our ongoing global scouting activities, we run a selection process to nominate the best startups for our corporate partner’s focus areas before each batch.

Kick-Off

Every batch starts with a kick-off event where the newly selected startups present their pitches, get to know the other participants and have first project meetings with their corporate pilot owner(s).

Deep Dive Weeks

Over the course of the batch, startups and pilot owners meet during 2 deep dive weeks for updates on the pilot projects. Startups get coaching and mentoring sessions with industry experts.

Expo Days

At the end of the 3-month program, the startups and their pilot owners present the results of their co-creation at the Expo Day event.
