IoT Tribe will organise sessions at lunchtimes and after work hours. Companies are required to commit at least 12 hours over 6 weeks.
Phase 2: UK soft-landing (1 week market immersion in London)
Participating companies will undergo a 1 week immersion in the UK, with the intent of capturing real business opportunities and making in-market connections.
Depending on the needs of participants, the immersion trip may offer the following activities:
Orientation of the London business ecosystem, including introduction to business activities and opportunities in the UK
Workshops on how to raise funds for expansion
One-to-one meetings with potential customers, investors and partners
Innovation Tour of London’s ecosystem
Tailored, invitation-only industry events attended by investors, startups and other key ecosystem players in London
The immersion trip may also be timed to coincide with large-scale industry events in London, to provide companies with more opportunities to engage a broad range of potential business connections.
Phase 3: Anchoring Impact (15 weeks)
After the immersion programme, participants will return to Singapore and develop concrete follow-up action plans based on leads established in the UK. Phase 3 includes group workshops for companies to review and share their experiences in the UK, and one-on-one sessions to build on potential business leads.
