INNOVFEST UNBOUND 2017

WAS A BLAST!

 

There was an 80 percent spike in interest in innovfest unbound this year. Over 11,000 participants registered their interest for Asia's most exciting innovation festival, joining 250+ industry leaders who came to share their insights and experiences, as well as 400 of some of the most innovative start-ups in the region.

During the event, Director of NUS Entrepreneurship Centre, Professor Wong Poh Kam, shed light on the start-up ecosystem in Singapore: Data from a study titled “Growth and Job Creation Dynamics of High-tech Startups in Singapore” found that start-ups in Singapore have a high ‘survival’ rate, but few make the leap to become gazelles - companies that can achieve fast and profitable growth.
