Innovation by start-ups is booming, and corporations increasingly innovate by acquiring them. This represents both an opportunity for early-stage investors and a strategic trend that strongly affects the corporate world. 

First introduced in 2015, IMD Alumni Community for Entrepreneurship (IMD ACE) has conducted several online (virtual) events in 2016, followed by already nine on-campus start-up investment events at IMD, in Lausanne in 2016-2017.  We are now extending this offer to the Singapore alumni.

The topic is on how to invest in start-ups and will also enable you to connect with start-ups and/or investors.  We are working with BANSEA | Business Angel Network of Southeast Asia, a startup investing platform with a strong presence in Singapore and a strong performance track record in startup investments.

The Online IMD ACE community is vibrant and well complements face-to-face events. On the community you can access the recordings the previous events (Lausanne sessions) and take part in discussions around entrepreneurship and innovation.

Event Description:

Face-to-face interactive event aimed at IMD alumni in the Singapore/SEA area.  The attendees would be the Investors from Singapore community, startups and IMD Alumni.  More details of the participating startup will be coming in first week of October.
