WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU?
In partnership with Enterprise Singapore (ESG), we are excited to announce the 3rd batch of China-Singapore Innovation Acceleration Programme (GIA Beijing Programme).
Both Singapore and China have been actively promoting the development of deep tech. In the recent Singapore Budget 2021, the government has committed to launching 500 fellowships under the National Research Foundation as a form of increased support to advance the development of deep tech areas like cybersecurity, AI, Blockchain, healthtech, biotech etc. In 2020, under the Startup SG Equity scheme, ESG’s investment arm Seeds Capital has launched a call for private co-investors to work together and pump S$150 million for the further development of the deep tech scene.
As for China, China has been the biggest driver of deep tech investment growth globally since 2015, having witnessed an annual increase in funding of more than 80% during the same time period. China’s spending on R&D on a purchasing-power- parity basis has increased by approximately 400% over the past 2 decades to exceed USD$400 billion a year. In 2019, the number one Chinese investment flow along“ the Belt and Road initiative”was Singapore, with US$4.83 billion.
