As Singapore moves towards becoming a Smart Nation, one of IDA's priorities is to build the technology industry through assisting the growth of our young and promising Singapore-based early-stage growth technology companies. Being accredited will open up more opportunities for their products and solutions to be showcased and eventually bought. For buyers from the Government and large enterprises, the accreditation process would provide an independent third party evaluation of the companies' claimed product core functionalities and ability to deliver.
Through Accreditation@IDA, IDA will help these Singapore-based companies win more work within the Government. To increase the visibility of accredited companies, they will be showcased at IDA events, demo days, and involved in thematic workshops to match government lead demand with innovative supply. The Government procurement process has also been streamlined to allow accredited companies to be considered first by Government agencies. Additionally, IDA has tied up with various strategic industry partners which can provide useful resources and expertise to the accredited companies when bidding for larger projects.
Accreditation@IDA is set up to achieve the following objectives:
- Accredit promising and innovative Singapore-based early-stage growth technology product companies to establish credentials and position them as qualified contenders to government and large enterprise buyers;
- Provide potential buyers assurance on the accredited companies' product core functionalities and ability to deliver; and
- Build an innovative technopreneur ecosystem to drive economic growth, inspire the younger generation, and build more innovative products and technology companies that can scale overseas.
A summary of the process for Accreditation@IDA is illustrated in the figure below.
