ASIA’S LEADING STARTUP ECOSYSTEM

BLOCK71 is a global entrepreneurial hub based in Singapore. With numerous collaborations with top startup accelerators, incubators and VCs, we are born out of an initiative between National University of Singapore (NUS Enterprise), Singtel Innov8 and Media Development Authority of Singapore.

Since our inception in 2011, BLOCK71 has changed the startup landscape in Southeast Asia and beyond. We have evolved to be a major startup incubator with over 9 incubation centers. Each of these entrepreneurial hotspots serve as launchpads for startups by offering resources, mentorship, networking opportunities, and a collaborative environment conducive for growth. The entrepreneurial hubs also maintain strategic partnerships with established corporations, government agencies and universities worldwide.

Today, we count Coda Payments, ShopBack, e27, 99.co and Carousell amongst the over 1,600 startups BLOCK71 has incubated; and we invite you to join our dynamic, entrepreneurial community to continue crafting impactful and sustainable solutions for all.
