SINGAPORE 10 MAR 2020: F10 Singapore, the Asia launchpad for Europe’s leading incubator and accelerator for FinTech, RegTech, InsurTech, and DeepTech, has launched its second incubator cohort featuring 10 select teams of entrepreneurs.
“Last year’s pioneer cohort proved it was possible to run an invigorating program with participants from around the world joining virtually too. The success of this hybrid model led to much anticipation around our second run and we received over 300 applications from global teams - we’re excited to welcome the 10 select startups for our 2021 incubator,," said Jonas Thürig, Head of F10 Singapore.
The fresh cohort is F10 Singapore’s most diverse in terms of geography with entrepreneurs from UK, Israel, India, Nepal and Malaysia joining the local cohort. Startups with teams outside of Singapore will join those in Singapore via online video calls.
F10 Singapore’s new incubator cohort includes:
To qualify for the program, startup teams needed to commit to transforming their prototype into a scalable product, gain traction and secure funding.
The F10 incubator provided the startups with 1-on-1 coaching on go-to-market and product development. Fundraising support was provided by connecting the entrepreneurs to the F10 investor network.
The F10 network gives entrepreneurs and startups strategic opportunities to connect with corporate partners which include the Swiss Stock Exchange (SIX), Julius Baer and R3 in Asia. There were more than 60 mentors in the program from companies such as Accenture, DBS, Deloitte, HSBC, NETS, Oracle, Standard Chartered, Stripe, UBS and more.
F10’s Corporate Partners in Singapore benefit from direct access to promising FinTech, RegTech, InsurTech as well as DeepTech startups, with the option to collaborate with the high-potential teams. Joining the F10 ecosystem with global reach and local hubs in Switzerland, Singapore and Spain helps incumbents and traditional institutions future-proof their business.
