Enhancing the Ecosystem for Technopreneurship


A*StartCentral (ASC), an open innovation community managed by ETPL, aims to inspire, train, and support researcher-entrepreneurs in building successful advanced technology enabled ventures.

ASC is opportunistically located at JTC LaunchPad @ one-north, amidst a vibrant R&D community of incubators, startups and talent across a wide range of industries and disciplines.

Enhancing the Ecosystem for Technopreneurship

What sets ASC apart from similar outfits is its ready-to-go physical wet and dry labs. It also regularly offers tailored programs and support to the community, in the form of domain-specific mentors, bootcamps, funding assistance, business networks and business clinics. Our community is powered by domain mentors who are accessible to our startup members; strategic partners who are committed to nurturing and investing in people; as well as entrepreneurs and startups aspiring to catalyse and orchestrate R&D activities in Singapore.
