Facilities

Situated within the heart of Singapore's startup ecosystem, A*StartCentral places its members in close proximity to S$2 Billion early stage venture capital and to over 500 start-ups.

A*STARTCentral hopes to create a unique open innovation platform to incubate technologies and nurture entrepreneurs with great ideas and provide post startup acceleration programmes with a companion community of partners. There exist an emerging, growing and vibrant number of startups in the ICT sector while the growth of Medtech and Life Sciences entrepreneurial efforts remain nascent. Our desire is to provide this chrysalis community the needed infrastructure and advisory support in their development process and coming of age.

A*STARTCentral will fill this gap by providing the hardware in the form of space, facility and wet lab infrastructure where members can create and test out design prototypes and hypothesis using ready-to-access tools and equipment.
