IdeaSpace is a program that aims to help budding technology entrepreneurs develop groundbreaking solutions and transform these into successful commercial products.

We go beyond “angel investing” to startups. We offer a program that combines business incubation and acceleration by providing:

  • Access to resource: seed funding and other resources/services needed by any startup;
  • Business education: learning via mentorship from business leaders, experience exchange with members from supporting group of companies and fellow technopreneurs; and
  • Connection: opportunity to demonstrate or showcase products to potential investors

We have partnerships with top technology vendors and affiliations with globally recognized technology incubators/accelerators to learn and replicate successes.

Our aspiration is to bring positive change in the society, thus, our program for innovation and technopreneurship welcome ideas and solutions that can support social development.
