Our thematic international missions

8-12 November 2021 in Singapore during the Singapore Week of Innovation and TeCHnology (SWITCH) event organised by Enterprise Singapore

In 2020 and 2021, SMEs participated in international hybrid events in Singapore and Canada. Our next international mission will be in Singapore as a part of SWITCH.

We will offer 100 companies the opportunity to take part in SWITCH, and 12 selected companies will be invited to participate in Slingshot, a deep tech pitching competition.

The event is organised by local Eureka partners and in collaboration with Singapore’s national funding body.

Attend our webinar on 7 October 2021 to be one of the 100 companies we send to SWITCH.
