CHINA-SINGAPORE
INNOVATION ACCELERATION
PROGRAMME BATCH4

WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU?

In partnership with Enterprise Singapore (ESG), we are excited to announce the 4th batch of China-Singapore Innovation Acceleration Programme (GIA Beijing Programme). DayDayUp has successfully led 30 Singapore Startups through our GIA programme since 2019. We are excited to continue to work with startups to expand their businesses and partnerships into Chinese market through Beijing, especially given China’s 2023 re-opening. 

As we emerge from COVID-19, organisations are continuing to disrupt business by automating, digitalising and outsourcing operations through increasingly innovative technology such as cloud, security and data. We continue to believe in using technology to turn business challenges into opportunities and have witnessed how technology has been an important part of business operations throughout the pandemic. 

 

Within the first nine months of 2022, Singapore has closed 517 deals and raised US$8.11 billion based on Singapore’s venture funding statistics. Deep tech funding has jumped 91% to reach US$1.64 billion this year, with the support of Singapore’s strong and established start-up ecosystem. 

 

As a result, the theme of our batch 4 GIA programme will focus on Singapore-based start ups developing  innovative technologies
