Welcome to Smart Port Challenge 2021
Smart Port Challenge 2021 has now concluded. Congrats to WeavAir (Winner), EcoWorth Tech (Runner-up), Spinoff Robotics (2nd Runner-up) and eyeGauge (Special Mention)!
From over 150 qualified submissions, 18 start-ups were selected to embark on PIER71TM Accelerate and the top 8 made it through to pitch in front of judges and invited guests at the Grand Final on 23 November. The success of SPC would not have been possible without the support of MPA, NUS, stakeholders across the ecosystem, as well as various maritime corporates who have offered innovation opportunities, engaged in conversations and shared insights throughout the programme. We also wish to thank our instructors, mentors, SPC alumni and speakers for their support and guidance to our 2021 cohort. Finally, thanks to all teams for your active participation and commitment.
