SWAT Mobility is one of 10 Singapore-based startups shortlisted for the GIA China-Singapore Innovation Acceleration Programme. The programme is a joint initiative by Singapore’s Economic Development Board (EDB) and Enterprise Singapore (ESG).

In partnership with Day Day Up, a platform that facilitates connection and communication between Chinese and global innovators, the programme aims to provide opportunities for business or innovation partnerships through its network, and support Singapore-based startups and SMEs in their expansion to the Chinese market.

The programme focuses on 3 sectors that China is exploring: Edutech, New Infrastructure, and High Value / Value-Added Consumerism. Each startup will spend 6 weeks with guidance from mentors to tackle challenges in one of these sectors. As part of the Programme, SWAT Mobility will be involved in workshops and lectures on China's cutting-edge tech innovation and market trends, and will be engaged in meetings with potential partners and investors looking for smart mobility solutions.

As a mobility tech startup, SWAT Mobility will be exploring opportunities in the New Infrastructure sector, particularly in integrated infrastructure to aid the development of smart cities across China. As part of the smart city development plans, China is looking to use intelligent transport to improve travel efficiency and reduce environmental impact. This is where companies like SWAT Mobility have an opportunity to partner with Chinese companies to develop and execute smart solutions to address mobility issues and improve use of current infrastructure. 

“The China-SG Innovation Acceleration Programme will be helpful in giving us a good understanding of the Chinese market, especially in the area of mobility tech. We hope to be able to forge meaningful ties with potential partners and lend our technology to support the execution of smart city solutions and improve transport efficiency.”

says Eugene Lee, Chief Operating Officer of SWAT Mobility.
