The Top 100 Global Startups made it to the three-day semi-finals and grand finals, and also went through a Gear Up workshop to plug them into the Singapore startup ecosystem, in addition to pitch coaching, mentorship, and legal

 

  1. Mr Peter Ong, Chairman, Enterprise Singapore said, “SLINGSHOT has grown over the years, successfully attracting more and more top quality startups from around the world. With the new focus on deal making, we gave participating startups more opportunities to profile themselves by increasing the number of investors2 and corporates on the judging panels. This was made possible through the strong support and active participation of global investors and venture builders who are the key players in nurturing many of our innovative ideas and companies. ”

 

  1. The winners were selected by a panel of international judges comprising venture firms such as Asia Partners Fund Management, East Ventures, Jungle Ventures, Matrix Partners China and Sequoia Capital, as well as corporates such as Danone, L’Oreal, Rolls-Royce and YCH Group. Besides the Startup SG grants, selected startups also won S$25,000 cash prizes from Danone, L’Oréal, Mistletoe, Rolls- Royce, ST Engineering, and S$10,000 cash prizes from Sembcorp and The Yield Lab. Mediacorp provided a S$300,000 media prize package, and FundedHere gave out a S$200,000 investment to the SLINGSHOT Grand Winner as Other prizes included legal clinics by WongPartnership for the Top 12, while the Top 30 won three months’ hot-desk memberships from Found8 and up to 18 months’ worth of workspaces at JTC Launchpad developments. In addition, all Top 100 Global Startups were given S$13,600 (US$10,000) worth of Cloud Credits by Digital

 

2 The number of investors on the judging panel more than doubled from 25 in 2018 to 70 this year. In addition, we increased the number of corporates joining us as sponsors, judges or tech scouts, by more than 5 times, from 17 in 2018 to 90 this year.

 

Ocean. This comprehensive prize package will give the startups a head start in establishing an office in Singapore, which in turn will contribute to the vibrancy of the startup ecosystem here. International startups will also receive Entrepass, a work visa for entrepreneurs.

 

  1. Past year winners have seen good progress in the development of their solutions as well as in their fundraising efforts.

 

  1. Alchemy Foodtech, a startup tackling the war against diabetes, has gone on to raise S$2.5 million after winning SLINGSHOT in 2018. Armed with technology to lower glucose release in food, it opened a foodtech laboratory, Cooklab@Alchemy, with the goal of transforming Singapore’s food industry through innovation. It has already signed more than 20 pilot partnerships with food manufacturers and companies in the region to come up with healthier food options to combat diabetes and other diseases. Alan Phua, its co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Winning Slingshot helped boost our credibility immensely and made it easier for us to reach out to B2B customers and attract media We were very fortunate to also have potential customers reach out to us on their own after the competition. The post competition support, both business development and financial, from Enterprise Singapore was also unbelievable. All this boosted our business case and made Alchemy an even more attractive investment opportunity for Venture Capitals and strategics."

 

  1. The 2017 winner, California-based Sophie’s Kitchen, has also set up its plant-based seafood manufacturing operations here. Most recently, they nabbed S$1 million in funding at The Liveability Challenge 2019 presented by Temasek Foundation and organised by Eco-Business in Singapore. Today, a pilot run to grow protein out of microalgae is underway, with the grand ambition to make Singapore a protein-exporting powerhouse and an aspiration to provide alternative space food options for astronauts. Eugene Wang, its founder and Chief Executive Officer said, “SLINGSHOT opened up a new page in our company history. With the connections established and the money we got through this event, we were able to start working on a lot of R&D projects which we were unable to do previously. These research projects eventually led us to the grand price at The Liveability Challenge 2019. Our business has since transformed into an advanced

 

food tech company that is in the most exciting space. All these were made possible thanks to our participation in SLINGSHOT back in 2017.”
