Helping SMEs Uncover Innovation Opportunities at SME Day 2017

On 20 April 2017, IPI participated as an exhibitor at SME Day 2017 at the Resorts World Convention Centre. IPI shared with delegates how it works with local small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to assist them in discovering new innovation opportunities and match them with suitable technology partners to enhance innovation capability.

In the opening address by guest-of-honour, Mr S. Iswaran, Minister for Trade and Industry, emphasised the government’ commitment in helping SMEs overcome barriers to innovation, R&D and technology adoption. He mentioned how IPI aims to help SMEs by matching them with relevant IP and will be partnering the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPOS) to analyse and bundle complementary IP from Singapore and overseas.

Focused on enabling SMEs with technologies and innovation, SME Day 2017 brought together various technology-related initiatives from the industry and partner agencies. The event is jointly organised by the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) and SPRING Singapore.
