About astar Accelerate


With a portfolio of over 1,200 patent families resulting from A*STAR research, and having granted more than 1,000 licenses – mostly to local companies – for A*STAR technologies, A*ccelerate has transformed from managing IPs to managing IP portfolios so as to better leverage our IP base. It has also shifted its focus from gap funding technologies to product co-development with partners to support innovation-driven growth needed by our enterprises. A*ccelerate is repositioning itself from a technology transfer arm to an entity orchestrating impactful commercialisation outcomes to grow local enterprises, aspiring to become the one-stop open innovation partner of choice for businesses.

No matter if you are an SME, a start-up, a large local enterprise or an MNC, in working with A*ccelerate, you can access the full breadth of A*STAR’s technologies, tap on our networks and work with us to co-develop new products and services.

Over the last 10 years, A*ccelerate has also contributed to the portfolio of over 100 companies, and raised over S$200 million for start-ups. Moving forward, A*ccelerate intends to accelerate the development of innovative technologies and start-ups in the MedTech and Life Sciences space, and this will be done primarily through our new A*StartCentral at JTC Launchpad@one-north.

A*ccelerate’s A*StartCentral aims to accelerate the growth of the Medtech and Lifesciences startup ecosystem. It builds an open innovation community, and supports budding researcher-entrepreneurs through its suite of services in terms of facilities, business development and access to mentors and investors.
