Landing Pad for Australian startups officially launched in Singapore

Official Opening SINLP

The Australian Landing Pad in Singapore was launched on Monday, 13 March 2017 by Australia's Minister for Foreign Affairs, the Hon Julie Bishop, MP together with Mr S. Iswaran, Singapore’s Minister for Trade and Industry (Industry).

Australia and Singapore recognise the importance of innovation to modern and dynamic economies, and this is a key pillar of the two countries' Comprehensive Strategic Partnership agreement. The Landing Pad is a concrete example of the two countries' commitment.

The Australian Landing Pad is located at BASH (Build Amazing Startups Here), Singapore's largest integrated startup space.

The Australian Landing Pad will bring together startups, research institutions, multinational corporations and leading technology players to promote innovation, research and development.

Participants will have a short-term operational base at the Landing Pad for up to 90 days, where they will benefit from Austrade’s extensive global network of contacts and tailored business development assistance.

The immersive environment is designed to accelerate the development of a startup’s product or service business model by exploring in-market business development, investment, mentorship and strategic partnership opportunities.

The Landing Pads program is administered by the Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade) as part of the Government’s National Innovation and Science Agenda. Five Landing Pads have been established around the world in Berlin, San Francisco, Shanghai, Tel Aviv and Singapore.
