Voices of PIER71™
PIER71 provided us a great platform to engage with leading maritime corporates, get live feedback and POCs; and helped gain customer traction. Additionally, the support from the Maritime Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) and the NUS Enterprise team was fantastic and both organisations have continued to be supportive of our journey.
Nidhi Gupta CEO, Portcast
PIER71 is an essential part of the Singapore maritime start-up ecosystem, supporting start-ups, corporates and investors alike. INNOPORT and various Schulte Group entities have been part of PIER71 for three years in a row – and we have greatly benefitted by accurately defining challenge statements, interacting with other ecosystem players, as well as running pilot projects with start-ups.
Haymon Sinapius Investment Manager, Asia, INNOPORT
Being part of Smart Port Challenge brought us closer to the market. Not only did we get the domain expertise to shape our product, but also the opportunity to pilot our technology with maritime corporates. We would strongly recommend SPC as it offers an unparalleled learning experience for tech start-ups venturing into the maritime sector.
Manik Bhandari CEO, Vulcan AI
PIER71 is great for founders who want to validate their ideas and find the product-market fit in the maritime industry. We are so thankful for having been given this opportunity to identify the most pervasive problems in the industry by engaging with mentors, industry expertise, etc.
Can Kiral Co-founder, Tagvance
Being part of the PIER71 ecosystem has really helped move our organisation forward – right from precise framing of the right problem statements. This means we can now get to the core issues faster with our ecosystem partners and develop fast paced and productive strategies to work with startups – this is a new skill in a corporate environment.
