Action Community in Entrepreneurship (ACE) is among the biggest supporters to entrepreneurship in Singapore. Their latest initiative involves putting together an online package of exclusive deals and special rates on items that startup founders typically need. Working together with Pyrks, the package is called the ACE Starter Kit. The partnership with ACE will allow Pyrks to provide the starter kits to startup founders and entrepreneurs.
Pyrks, a company and employee benefits platform, is co-founded by Jeffrey Paine and Nicholas Gan. Jeffrey is an active figure in the community and recently wrote an open letter to the government about the state of entrepreneurship in Singapore. He also runs Founders Institute Singapore, and is a founding partner at Golden Gate Ventures. Nicholas has a background in asset management.
The starter kit features resources from over 40 merchant partners, such as OCBC, JobsCentral, Google, Microsoft and Amazon. This will provide access to products and services ranging from web hosting to job recruitment services, bookkeeping to legal services.
Startups under two years old can qualify for the Startup Kit and all the items are valid for one year from the point of sign-up, at attractive discounts. Upon registering for the Starter Kit, Pyrks will review and approve your company, a process which might take days as there is a huge sign up rate for the Starter Kit.
For those who have managed to gain access to the Starter Kit, we would love to find out what perks you have gained access to through the kit, and how these can help in your operations.
