Meeting with ACE
Two entrepreneurial ecosystems – one goal
At the JTC LaunchPad – the heard of the Singaporean startup scene – we met with Marianne Tan, Head of Internationalisation at ACE. The Action Community for Entrepreneurship (ACE) is one of the strongest initiatives in the vibrating centre of Singapore’s startups. Launched by the Ministry of Trade & Industry and since 2014 established as a private-led initative, ACE works closely with Enterprise Singapore to drive the local entrepreneurship initiative.
Together with Marianne we discussed how to empower entrepreneurs in Singapore and the ASEAN region. One big topic was, how we – as German innovation hub – can have a positive impact towards the entrepreneurial ecosystem of Singapore. Therefore, we talked in our meeting about several events. Common goal is, to combine the experience of ACE in Asia with our knowledge about the German and European market.
Get an impression of the German market
With our events in collaboration with ACE and the several other activities of the German innovation hub we will address startups and young entrepreneurs with a German, European or worldwide strategy. We see Germany as an attractive first step, especially to enter the European market and to collaborate with leaders out of all industry sectors. Therefore, the German innovation hub delivers with mentors, experts and a broad network into the German industry the optimal launchpad for your activities.
We will start in collaboration with ACE several events to give you insides of the German market. Startups and entrepreneurs will learn at our g:campus event how to understand the German market.
With the event g:force we will set your idea under German pressure, that mean you pitch and we give you an short feedback from our perspective.
If your Startup is ready for the German and European market, we are your bridge to internationalise. Our exchange program together with German corporates can be your first step in a long process to go aboard.
We are confident that our collaboration with ACE will bring a positive impact to all the entrepreneurs who want a bridge into the German and European market. We are glad, that we can bring a value add into the strong entrepreneurial ecosystem of ACE in Singapore.
