Meetup to Advance Business

Since 2014 Leave a Nest has operated a Seed Acceleration Program “TECH PLANTER” for real-tech startup in Singapore. In addition, we have held the showcase event “TECH PLAN DEMO DAY in SINGAPORE” 5 times. This program is unique in Southeast Asia, and has received support from local universities, research institutes as well as acceleration and incubation agencies. A total of 86 local teams (TECH PLANTER MEMBERS) have registered in our community, mainly from start-ups originating from universities.

At this meet up, startups can search for funding agencies, business partners, as well as technical information to advance the project. VCs can explore investment opportunities. Additionally, students and young researchers who join this community, allow us to assist them in long-term recruitment matching.
