Start-ups urged to apply for Singapore Landing Pad 2019
Australian cybersecurity companies looking to expand into the ASEAN region can apply for the program to help support their expansion.
The Landing Pads program provides tailored, cohort-based residencies to help Australian start-ups land and expand into major global innovation hubs around the world.
Applications close Monday, 4 February 2019.
The Landing Pad residency program will commence on 13 May 2019 and conclude on 12 August 2019. Places are strictly limited and subject to a competitive process.
Prior to leaving Australia, participants will receive an induction program, part of which will assist them to establish measurable goals for the Landing Pad program.
While in Singapore, participants will receive customised market-entry and business development assistance, as well as strategic introductions to potential customers, partners and investors who are interested in cybersecurity solutions. The program will also connect them to the local cybersecurity ecosystem such as ICE71.
They will have an operational base at the Australian Landing Pad in Singapore. AustCyber will provide each company selected with a cash injection of approximately $6000.
Interested companies must complete and submit an online application form. Each business will be assessed based on its track record, ability to scale up, and what makes its products or services stand out in the market. A selection panel will assess applications.
Successful candidates will be notified in mid-March 2019.
