We are inviting visionary minds to be part of Deep Tech for Good, an SGInnovate initiative. This global initiative aims to gather experts in Science and Technology, entrepreneurship, academia, government and international affairs, to reimagine the boundaries of research-based innovation, catalyse collaborations among corporates, startups and governments, and advance Deep Tech developments for social and economic good.
We are bringing together the best and the brightest to share their vision and explore how Deep Tech can be applied in areas like Healthcare, Clean Energy, Agriculture and Transportation for the betterment of the planet and its people. We hope to achieve this goal through a series of collaborative initiatives such as Deep Tech talent building programmes, innovation challenges and research commercialisation efforts. We invite you to join our conversations and initiate meaningful projects. If you have an idea that we can collectively work on, please let us know.
Held in conjunction with SFF x SWITCH as a virtual conference, the third edition of Deep Tech Summit is a best-in-class convening of thought-leaders and industry practitioners who are committed to harnessing science and technology innovation to help the world emerge more resilient and sustainable after the COVID-19 pandemic.
SGInnovate and Extreme Tech Challenge (XTC) are co-hosting a regional competition that culminates at XTC Singapore Demo Day on 24 March 2021, where outstanding startups will be showcased. The top three startups will become XTC finalists and be invited to Paris in June 2021.
As an XTC finalist, the startup will get an opportunity to connect with XTC partners (Samsung, Mahindra, Ford, NXP, Harman, Cisco) and possibly pitch to an esteemed panel of judges at Vivatech, one of the largest European tech conferences.

In Southeast Asia, as the region primes itself to be one of the largest digital economies of the world, it would need strong human capital – female talent to be part of the solution.
