Our GIA Acceleration Programme with IoT Tribe gives Singapore-based startups and companies a boost in scaling their innovation and business into one of Europe’s leading startup hubs, while providing EU based startups and scale-ups a beach-head into the ASEAN markets. Faced with the current challenges due to the Coronavirus, IoT Tribe has effectively changed the programme into a hybrid online/offline
model to ensure that startups continue to receive support along their journey while reducing travel and staying safe. We encourage more startups to tap our partners’ networks, to benefit from the rich experience and expertise of the mentors and industry experts for growth.
The IoT Tribe SG Plus:London Tech Calling acceleration programme comes at a perfect time for SensorFlow as we are gearing up to expand internationally in line with the global hospitality sector’s need to optimise energy and operational efficiency while adapting to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are looking forward to making the most out of the support and the new connections via the programme to further expand the use of our technology which helps hotels and commercial properties maximise the use of limited resources, adopt clean technologies and become more sustainable. SensorFlow’s solutions can thus help clients save costs in the longer term and bounce back faster from the pandemic’s economic effects.
I am grateful and delighted that we’ve joined the IoT Tribe London Tech Calling programme which has connected us with industry experts and mentors. IoT Tribe’s global networks and resources have been key in helping our company create a world-class business ecosystem with credibility and trust. Most importantly, IoT Tribe believes in us and has supported us a lot from the day we were admitted into the program. We have always
appreciated their constant communication with us and we love to be part of The Tribe.
Though it is still halfway through the programme, I’ve already found it to be really beneficial with the structure, various webinars with different experts in order to get us ready for entry into the UK market. Giving us a wealth of information. On top of all that, most valuable were the introductions made through IoT Tribe’s contacts. At times, I do feel they have gone over and beyond what they are tasked to do. At this point, I must say that I’m more than satisfied and am looking forward to the rest of the programme.
