The 9th Main Conference of the Association of Hyperdifferent Fields WEB:https://hic.lne.st/conference/hic2020/


 Singapore has one of the best venture ecosystems in Asia. It is positioned as a hub for ventures that promote problem solving in Southeast Asia. Japan has long been seen as an important market and collaborator for Singaporean companies, but due to differences in language and business practices, active collaboration has yet to materialize. To overcome this situation, Riverness and the Singaporean government will launch an initiative to connect the Japanese and Singaporean ecosystems in the form of support for Singaporean ventures entering the Japanese market from 2020. Through the joint implementation of the Japan Market Entry Support Program, RIVERNESS and Enterprise Singapore will support selected Singaporean ventures in their market development and technology development in Japan.
