As 2020 comes around, we hope to bring in more startup events and programmes to spur on the startup ecosystem and ignite the innovative spark in everyone.
Nobody forgets the helping hand that gave them their start. For these startups that are solving problems for social good, two of our employees are paying it forward as their mentors at The Start, a new pre-accelerator programme.
For people who are in the very early stages of their startup journey, a pre-accelerator can be great.
“Let’s start from the beginning. Three months before demo day, we kickstarted our inaugural pre-accelerator programme called The Start, in an effort to fill a gap in the market.”
Singapore’s StaffAny became one of the ten early stage startups to graduate from The Start’s pre-accelerator program this week.
Three months ago, The Start, a pre-accelerator programme organised by StartupX was kickstarted to catalyse the growth of early-stage startups.
I’m the co-founder of The Kint Story, an online platform dedicated to rebranding second-hand clothing so that they’re no longer seen as second best.
To encourage innovation in Singapore, Temasek partnered StartupX, the organizing body behind Startup Weekend Singapore, and launched The Start pre-accelerator program earlier in January.
This is how we failed, and then realised it gave us what we needed to succeed.
For example, we are currently running a new pre-accelerator program called “The Start”, where local startups aiming to create social impact vie for mentorships and sponsorship from Temasek.
