Singapore EDB: Corporate Venture Launchpad 2.0

Stryber has been appointed as a Venture Studio of the Corporate Venture Launchpad 2.0 by the Economic Development Board of Singapore

Build ventures and venture engines with EDB and Stryber

Singapore presents an incredible opportunity for established corporates, regional family businesses, and high growth companies to launch new ventures thanks to its vibrant innovation ecosystem, funding and talent availability, and proximity to APAC markets.

Businesses looking to generate, validate, and test new ideas with Stryber in this programme could be eligible for a 50% co-funding by EDB (up to S$500,000) per validation sprint.

In addition, high-potential projects that have successfully completed the validation sprint may potentially be eligible for a 30% co-funding by EDB (up to S$500,000) to build and launch the venture. Potential follow-on co-investment and value creation support by EDB may also be unlocked for promising ventures launched from this programme.

We help corporates, scale-ups, funds, and family businesses:
