Singapore: A Global Center for Innovation
The incredible journey of Singapore, from a struggling polluted backwater in 1965 when they first won independence from Malaysia, into a global powerhouse, is the result of first Prime Minister, Lee Kuan Yew’s incredible vision. Today, Singapore is creating a world-class innovation ecosystem that is attracting international start-ups to its shores while also developing homegrown solutions through the support of Government agencies equipping them with resources for the digital age. Singapore’s size and strategic location also make it an ideal platform to test new products and services before rolling them out to the rest of Asia and beyond. Together, these have made Singapore one of the most desirable places to do business.
Earning the highest honor, Singapore won 2019 Innovation Champion by the International Innovation Scorecard produced by the Consumer Technology Association. This accolade recognizes success across 28 categories including ease of doing business, the startup community, unicorns, drones and policy to name a few. (Note, both Finland and Estonia also were recognized as 2019 Innovation Champions—also destinations of The Disruption Lab’s 2018 Executive Innovation Program.) This city-state also won no.1 best city worldwide for startups in 2017 according to Nestpick, outranking even Silicon Valley. And it’s no. 5 most innovative in the 2018 Global Innovation Index.
