We have helped over 90 corporates in their innovation journey

To establish an intrapreneurship programme, we designed a curriculum that propelled NTUC Social Enterprises into accelerator stage where they designed and ran in-market pilots.
DBS Innovation Lab was first conceptualised and incubated at Found8 more than 4 years ago, under the mentorship of Scott Bales. It is now a 16,000-square-foot space located at One-North, working with more than 5000 people on projects annually.
In collaboration with P&G, we executed an international Open Innovation Challenge to seek out new breakthroughs on improving consumers’ lives. Together, we secured 45 high quality challenge submissions.

Solaria Labs set up their innovation lab in Found8 to cultivate a startup and founder mindset in their team. Together, we hosted over 100 participants during the Fintech Festival in Singapore.

To better understand and deliver responsible consumption Found8 designed and implemented a 48 hour Hackathon Challenge for 120 programmers and techies leading to 8 high-quality prototypes and 4 partnerships established for ABinBev.

Together with Roland Berger we gathered 5 founders who are disrupting the mobility, cybersecurity & AI spaces. Participants received in-depth market insight into Singapore’s Smart Nation initiatives and start-up ecosystem.

Found8 designed a 6-month membership package for Mazars' innovation team to immerse, interact and collaborate with our community leading to a successful creation of their innovation strategy.

Found8 trained 10 Japanese Fintech companies to identify opportunities to gain access to Singapore and ASEAN. We provided direct mentoring, workshops, pitch practices and networking in Tokyo and Singapore.

Testimonials

The Startup Lab is a very meaningful initiative which has injected hope and aspiration in the youths who participated in the program. We have seen a handful of “zero to hero” success stories in such a short span. In addition, J.P. Morgan employees have also benefited from the numerous employee engagement and volunteerism opportunities. Not forgetting the enriching experience collaborating with members from Found8.

Khew U-Wei,
Vice President - J.P Morgan

Mazars’ Innovation Lab and its team of 5 was based at Found8 every Friday for 8 weeks. Our team benefited greatly from the unique work atmosphere and environment at Found8 as well as Found8’s community of entrepreneurs who were very accessible and keen to help us.

David Nosibor,
Head of APAC Digital Innovation Team - Mazars

Found8 helped us to organize one of the most vibrant and effective hackathons we’ve ever seen. We look forward to working with Found8 again and exploring future partnership opportunities in the APAC region.
