We are a one-stop design and solution center for SMEs.
A center dedicated to support Singapore's SMEs from the ideation stage to the design and engineering stage, allowing them to become product owners to venture into higher value markets.
The Innovation Factory is located within the Jurong Innovation District (JID) and is supported by more than 500 researchers and scientists in SIMTech and ARTC.
The Innovation Factory is a national platform led by SIMTech with the aim to accelerate the design thinking and innovation journey, and the transformation of ideas into commercially viable products that are ready for market adoption.
