Benefits of JUMPstart

A key differentiator is our focus on developing long-term success for each of our participating startups. We understand that the road to commercialisation of a Medtech idea is complex and our programme is tailored to the specific needs of each founding team / startup. We take an individualised approach to gap identification.

Each team is also paired with internal programme manager who champions their idea and acts as their lead advocate to:

  • Enable the startup and founders towards commercially driven decision making.
  • Help drive technology and market validation
  • Establish a clear path to market by identifying regulatory, reimbursement and go-to-market strategy early.

We require start-ups choose to incubate and sign an incubation agreement with either of NUS/NTU/SUTD. Standard terms of incubation agreement apply including equity requirements. We do not take any additional equity.

  • Exclusive access to our community and extended network of investors, industry and innovation partners.
  • Total support in excess of SGD 200K per team for ECD and QMI components which includes Intensive Mentorship, Business and Product Development, Industry Collaboration and Capital Raising support
  • Pathway to subsequent funding of $750,000 from Enterprise Singapore and other host institutions.
