Intellectual property (IP) competition with funding of up to US$500,000 for winners.
- IPHatch® opens in Singapore to attract tech start-ups to grow IP portfolios and create the next Asian unicorns
- Jointly organised by Piece Future and IPI Singapore, and supported by Nokia and Panasonic, it aims to attract local and global start-ups to take part
The Singapore government’s 10-year IP Hub Masterplan to groom Singapore into a global intellectual property (IP) hub will get another shot in the arm with the latest edition of the IPHatch® Challenge.
Mr Loh, Founder and CEO of Piece Future, said, "We want to encourage
entrepreneurship and assist promising SMEs and start-ups to turn their ideas into assets. Inventions or brands have little value without IP rights. IPHatch® is a unique initiative that offers patents from Big Tech companies to attract start-ups, businesses and inventors to showcase their innovations, and eventually register their IP assets in Singapore. By doing so, we can grow the value of our IPs and build Singapore into a leading IP centre - not just as a repository of unique IPs but one which usher in higher paying jobs and spur further innovation. We also want to help inventors and start-ups’ to commercialise their dreams to become the next Asian unicorns."
