    Singapore’s journey in innovation

    Rising against all odds, Singapore is pushing hard to becoming a research-intensive, innovative and entrepreneurial economy.

    “When it comes to innovation, there is no such thing as status quo — you either improve or decline relative to everyone else and sitting in a comfort zone for too long could prove costly.” That is the philosophy of Steve Leonard, the founding chief executive of SGInnovate. SGInnovate is a leading government enterprise that consolidates entrepreneurs’ innovation efforts in Singapore.

    Given Singapore’s tiny domestic market, it was impossible to rely on import substitution to promote economic independence and development. Instead, the city-state chose the unconventional route of attracting investments from foreign multinational corporations.

    SGInnovate to renovate BASH at Block 79, invest in 20 startups next year

    SGInnovate says it would be renovating the 25,000 sf co-working space BASH at Block 79 to be more aligned with its three new focus areas. SGInnovate, which started in 2016, says it would intensify its focus on artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, and medical technology — areas identified by the government-backed private enterprise to have a major impact on most industries. There will be more private rooms in the new BASH as some AI-based startups may be dealing with confidential data.
