Our MOU aims to support French and Singapore startups and help them gain a foothold in our respective markets. It falls
under the Global Innovation Alliance, which was launched last year to strengthen Singapore's links to innovation hubs around the world and to create more opportunities for Singaporeans students, entrepreneurs and businesses to connect and collaborate with their overseas counterparts and gain overseas experience.
The partnerships aim to boost Singapore and France’s startup ecosystem by promoting exchange between startups, especially in deeptech, as well as to establish more collaborations between French enterprises and Singaporean startups to co-create and co-innovate solutions for Europe and Asia.
Following our MOU with Startup-O in May, this is a new step for us into Singapore !
