Following the success of the 2018 edition, the Chamber invites technology companies to participate in its second trade mission to Singapore. This mission will take place from November 10 to 15, 2019, for the Singapore FinTech Festival (SFF) and the Singapore Week of Innovation and Technology (SWITCH).
The Singapore FinTech Festival (SFF) and the Singapore Week of Innovation and Technology (SWITCH)
The Singapore FinTech Festival (SFF) and the Singapore Week of Innovation and Technology (SWITCH) will be held during the same week for the first time. In 2018, these two events attracted a total of nearly 57,000 participants from about 130 countries. It is an unparalleled opportunity for entrepreneurs, investors, researchers and professionals from various backgrounds to discover the latest technological advances, and also to target collaborative opportunities.

This mission is aimed at businesses in various industries: fintech, urban solutions and sustainability, health and biomedical sciences, advanced manufacturing and engineering, and digital services.
As doing business in Singapore is convenient, it is known as the gateway to the Asian market. It is the third largest financial centre in the world, after London and New York, with some 1,200 financial institutions, including banking industry leaders, major insurance companies and Canadian retirement funds.
Singapore is one of the economies most open to trade and foreign investments. This business-friendly environment is particularly favourable for fintechs. Between January and October 2018, Singapore-based fintech companies recorded investments of around US$222 million.
An unparalleled opportunity
During the 2018 edition, the companies that participated in our Singapore mission were able to take advantage of targeted meetings with key players in the international financial and technology sectors:
“It was Squares Union’s second fintech mission with the Chamber, and it was a success. We had three objectives: find payment partners, set up a subsidiary in Singapore and meet with a major potential investor in Asia. It was a busy mission that allowed us to achieve our objectives.” – Freddy Noumeyi, Vice President, Operations at Squares Union
“It was a fantastic experience. One of Singapore's characteristics is its cultural mix between Asia and America. The most important thing was to be able to align our vision with this market’s. There is no doubt that the mission was a stepping stone to the successful expansion of our company.” – Louis Cléroux, President and Chief Executive Officer of Timechain
