Our Achievements: Over 600 free advisory sessions, 36 iJAM.Reload companies, S$5.6m angel funding & government grants approved
Our cause is social first. Silicon Valley was created by the willingness of former entrepreneurs who gave their experiences, time, resources and finances. We believe that only entrepreneurs can advise and nurture another entrepreneur. Our mentors are entrepreneurs holding experiences of success and failures. These lessons are valuable and will be imparted to our incubatees.
There has been too many stories from start-ups where they were asked to give up equity for free advice by mentors, or coerced to pay fees for various services. Eventually these start-ups do not gain the value that was promised. We intend to expose this style of predatory mentorship by offering free advisory and various services. On the flip side, the Singapore government has been generous in supporting the start-up culture and offers grants to fund ideas. However, there has been too many start-ups who abuse this privilege and only survive to obtain grants. Our mission is to eliminate such behaviour in the entrepreneurial ecosystem, be accountable to Singapore taxpayers and build real profitable companies for the Singapore ecosystem.
