STARS Programme is a mentorship and partnership-centric programme on a zero-equity basis. Participating startups will receive a broad range of support covering mentorship, business and investor matchings, proof-of-concept trials, upskilling workshops, networking opportunities and market exposure, empowering their capabilities and growths on multiple fronts. Post the Programme, some of our STARS alumni have successfully taken their innovations to the international stage, such as Consumer Electronics Show and World Summit.
