The Urban Organism

More than just a digital city, a smart city can be likened to a biological system. Akin to a living organism, each part impacts on one another to perform functions.

Coined the urban organism, smart cities ensure interoperability between various systems for it to be agile, flexible and sustainable. We're creating a whole new world of possibilities today.

In partnership with

Leading Smart Cities Startup,
INVESTOR AND CORPORATE INNOVATOR ECOSYSTEMS

CORPORATE INNOVATORS NETWORKING SESSION

We are creating the first ever ‘Corporate Innovators Network’ as part of the Summit to connect corporate innovators not only to disruptive startups and new technologies, but also to other corporate innovators globally.

READ FULL DETAILS

Calling all Corporate Innovators!

As part of the Singapore Smart Cities Summit by igloohome, ACE, Action Community for Entrepreneurship, will be sponsoring the Corporate Innovators Networking Session.

 

Who Should Come?

Corporate Innovators

 

What is a Corporate Innovator?

By corporate innovators, we mean people who hold the title of head of innovation, head of transformation, CTO and similar roles or in teams with those functions at corporations and government entities. Regardless of title, the deciding factor is whether you are tasked with bringing in new technologies and changes for your company or your company’s businesses. The definition excludes those advising other companies on change but include those that do corporate venturing for the company itself in the form of investments. A lot of grey areas here so sign up and we will send over the invite if you are right.

 

Why Should Corporate Innovators Come?

We are seeking out corporate innovators globally to build a corporate innovators network. The network and the networking session will probably be the first of such that connects corporate innovators not just to startups and new technologies, but also to other corporate innovators globally to encourage cross pollination of innovative ideas across different industries.

 

When and Where is the Networking Session?

Aug. 30, 2:15pm - 3:15pm, JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach, Grand Ballroom

 

How do I Sign Up?

Smart City Startups

As a startup ourselves, we know what you need. A key focus of the Summit is to connect you to potential clients and investors.

Why You Should Participate as a Startup/Sell Side

  • Be a Smart Cities Icon, Be the Best of the Rest
    We only accept the best startups. By being in this exclusive ecosystem, you get the branding and publicity as an up and coming disruptive smart cities icon.
  • Market Your Product to the Right Audience
  • Connect to Decision Makers, Efficiently
    Don’t rely on luck to meet decision makers at a conference. We’ll give you a contact list/who’s who guide in advance so that you can arrange for meetings. We will even manually introduce you to decision makers that are relevant to you (tiered access).
  • Actually Useful Panels
    Our panels aren’t about high level, abstract discussions. We ask the panelists questions that you would have asked yourself.

Participation Cost: SG$3,000
Contact us at regina.tan@igloohome.co or summit@igloohome.co to participate.

 

What You Get:

  1. Be featured in the electronic catalogue that will be sent to all participants
  2. Table, chairs and space for you to display your product/technologies
  3. Entry tickets for 5 people – Make them feel special by inviting your employees, investors or anyone you want to impress to this by invite only event

  6. Have your company promotional video played during the panel breaks

*Note: Changes to terms at organizer’s discretion

 

Incentivized Referral Mechanism

Many companies target the same audience even though they may be non-competing. Instead of everyone striving to connect to the buy side on their own, we’re creating an incentivized referral mechanism where participants get to tap on the mega-network based on their contribution to the ecosystem. For every buy side that you introduce to the Summit, we will manually introduce you to two decision makers of your choice. We created this give-and-take combined with six degrees of separation sort of approach to allow for a more efficient expansion of relationships and facilitate greater deal closures.

 

 

Government Entities, Corporate Innovators, Investors, Media and Everyone Else

Sick of going to conferences and seeing the same old stuff from the big names? This Summit will show you the disruptive startups, often overshadowed by the big budgets at conferences, and help you find that hidden gem.

Why You Should Participate as a Buy Side, Investor, Media or Industry Participant

  • Discover the Hidden Gems
    Most conferences are saturated with propaganda from the big names. This summit focuses on filtering out the noise to help you find the best, relatively undiscovered startups, products, and technologies. Get exposure to the full range of innovative solutions across the smart cities supply chain and know the disruptive startups before others do.
  • Be a Part of This Exclusive Group. Connect to the Right People.
    Connect not just to the startups, but also the key people and companies along the smart cities supply chain. We’ll give you a contact list/who’s who guide so that you can arrange for meetings in advance and even manually introduce you to decision makers that are relevant to you (tiered access).
  • Actually Useful Panels
    Our panels aren’t about high level, abstract discussions. We ask the panelists questions that you would have asked yourself.

Participation Cost: SG$500/person, free for selected media

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Why is igloohome, a Startup, Organizing a Summit? What’s the Difference from Other Conferences?

igloohome knows that most conferences leave connecting companies to the right people to luck. Buy side companies are constantly bombarded by what the big players offer but what they are looking for are new, disruptive ideas. Instead of waiting for others to solve our problem, we decided to use this summit to bridge the gap by making the connection process more efficient and facilitate deal closures for participants. Instead of trying to seek out connections one-by-one, we link up the different communities and ecosystems to build a mega-network and allow participants to tap on the mega-network to form their own relations.

 

What’s different about your “connection process”?

We got inspired by six degrees of separation and created an incentivized referral mechanism. Probably the first of such implemented at a Summit, one's access to the network depends on the resources (in the form of connections, funding or others) one shares with the community. The more valuable the connections or resources one brings to the ecosystem, the more one can tap on others' relationships and expand their own.

 

Is this Summit about igloohome? What is igloohome's role in this Summit?

No, the Summit isn't about igloohome. The Summit is a private sector initiative backed by government entities and industry bodies. igloohome is leading the initiative but is happy to include anyone who wants to partner or get involved. Reach out to us at summit@igloohome.co!
