The start-up ecosystem is growing and many of the innovative new solutions are coming from these rather young companies. Sustainable Energy Association of Singapore (SEAS) launched its Sustainable Energy Start-Up Network (SESUN) in Jul 2018 to provide a platform for the bright minds the opportunity to share their ideas and innovations with the more established professionals in the industry.
Targeted at energy start-ups, SEAS introduced two initiatives last year; PowerACE competition & ACES Innovation Arena. PowerACE 2019 is a start-up competition that looks at involving all players of the clean-energy start-up ecosystem. 12 selected start-ups will then pitch and display their products and services at the start-up Innovation Arena @ ACES Exhibition. This will allow selected new energy companies to showcase and exhibit their ideas and innovations as part of bigger strategy to build a more robust energy ecosystem in Singapore.
Furthermore, these pre-selected start-ups will have the opportunity to present their ideas to a judging team, comprising C-suite executives. They will also meet with the venture capitalists and those responsible for the venture arms within the energy sector and professionals who can help catapult them from start-up to scale up! To top it all, the winning start-up company will receive attractive prizes.
ACES Innovation Arena is organised in partnership with Private Financing Advisory Network (PFAN).
