SG Innovation Community Day

Presented by SGInnovate and Enterprise Singapore
In support of SWITCH 2021

SG Innovation Community Day returns on 4 August 2021! 

The 2021 edition invites the international and Singapore community together for a half-day forum to celebrate global collaborations and opportunities in innovation and entrepreneurship.

Hosted on the SWITCH virtual platform, delegates will be able to network seamlessly with one another, as well as connect over an array of curated keynote and panel sessions across two channels, SWITCH Beyond, and SWITCH Global.

SWITCH Beyond will highlight a priority agenda on globally emergent topics such as sustainability, open innovation and deep tech trends. SWITCH Global will explore the emerging business and innovation opportunities in Singapore and international markets.

Embark on a year-long calendar of events and community check-ins!

SG Innovation Community Day is the first stop of SWITCH 2021’s year-long innovation journey where the Global and Asia innovation ecosystems meet to discuss and collaborate on the most innovative technology trends and business opportunities.
