The Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) today announced it will showcase nine Singapore-born technology startups making their North American debut at the South by Southwest (SXSW), March 10-13 in Austin.
According to IDA, Singapore is becoming a hotbed of tech startup activity in Asia as software, mobile app and Internet entrepreneurs turn out the next generation of technological innovations for businesses and consumers.
“Singapore’s technology, talent and financial infrastructure provide an ideal springboard for expansion in the region for both home-grown and international companies based in Singapore,” said Victor Tan, center director at IDA’s U.S. headquarters in San Francisco.
An agency of the Singapore government, IDA aims to develop a strong infocomm ecosystem where MNCs and international companies work alongside local enterprises and startups to innovate and grow the industry.
It also seeks opportunities to grow local infocomm companies by facilitating their access into the global marketplace.
IDA’s U.S. office provides incubator office space and support services to Singapore companies, helping them expand in North America.
