On 7 December, IPI hosted a roundtable session with Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat and IPI Innovation Advisors across various sectors. The industry veterans shared their experiences in guiding local SMEs and start-ups at different stages of their innovation journeys and how they have been helping the companies create business impact and growth.

In addition, the discussion also touched on the need for the right balance of support in the ecosystem to facilitate SMEs and start-ups to scale and the importance of growing the overseas experience among students and young executives.

As the year comes to a close, IPI looks forward to adding value to more Singapore enterprises and positioning them for growth in 2022 and beyond.
