February 1, 2015 | StartupEast, an Israel-Asian accelerator, and the National University of Singapore (NUS), will team up to create a new program for Israeli startups. The program will be divided between Israel and Asia, allowing Israeli entrepreneurs the chance to meet clients, partners and investors from Singapore and to receive mentoring and launch product pilots. The program will be hosted at Block71, NUS’s open-space hub in the center of Singapore. The companies that are able to succeed in Asia will be able to take advantage of StartupEast’s collaboration with the Synergy China Fund, giving them a foot-in in China. StartupEast aims to connect Israeli and Asian startups and investors through joint-sided acceleration programs, as well as bootcamps and training sessions.
