ACE Singapore officially launch the new True Digital Park
The Action Community for Entrepreneurship (ACE), a national private-led organisation seeking to drive entrepreneurship and innovation in Singapore, joins hands with True Digital Park (TPDK), an innovation ecosystem for both Thai and international startups industry players, to officially launch the new True Digital Park–ACE Singapore Centre.
The partnership was announced today during TDPK’s T.O.P 2019 – Together of Possibilities Grand Opening event.
Back in May 2018, ACE and True Digital Park signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that represents the collaboration between Singapore and Thailand in the areas of entrepreneurship and innovation.
The opening of the Centre marks ACE’s support for local and international startups with market access opportunities. The Centre is the second one launched by ACE this year and the first within Southeast Asia.
With the Centre, Singaporean startups will be able to leverage on the TDPK-ACE Singapore Centre as a Landing Zone for access to local partners, spaces for work, and participate in market-focussed programmes.
True Digital Park (TDPK) has been a key strategic partner for Singapore startups to ‘soft-land’ and use Bangkok as a launchpad into the Thai market. Located in the heart of Bangkok’s cyber-tech district, the facility houses startups, venture capitalists, accelerators, and government offices.
Singapore startups arriving in Thailand through TDPK will be able to plug-in from day one to help them gain a foothold in their internationalisation plans.
