Hello Tomorrow strengthens its presence in Asia Pacific with the establishment of Hello Tomorrow Asia Pacific.
Hello Tomorrow has been the reference platform for deep-technology innovations since 2011, supporting such start-ups through the Hello Tomorrow Global Challenge and other incubation, acceleration, and education programmes.
As Arnaud de la Tour, CEO of Hello Tomorrow, explains “Successful startups engage with talents, clients, and investors from all over the world. It is therefore important for Hello Tomorrow to keep growing its international community, and Singapore is well positioned to cover the APAC region.”
The increasingly international network of ideas and a growing global consciousness of the potential of deep technologies to solve the world’s toughest challenges calls for greater global alignment between national and regional ecosystems.
Hello Tomorrow Asia Pacific will continue to be based out of Singapore, working in close collaboration with other local Hello Tomorrow hubs and partners in the region. This new APAC chapter is a reaffirmation of Hello Tomorrow’s commitment to building stronger bridges for deep-tech innovations not just across major innovation hubs, but also across developing ecosystems.
“There is growing realisation from all parties – governments, corporates, and academia – of the need to support emerging deep technologies to bring positive change to our planet, societies, and industries.” Ernest Xue, Head of Hello Tomorrow Asia Pacific explains. “This comprehensive alignment within the APAC region best allows Hello Tomorrow to bring in curated innovations in support of the massive industrial complexes here, while also building bridges to help innovators emerging from the region to scale within and beyond.”
Local hubs continue to be crucial to Hello Tomorrow’s work, and are invaluable to translating global learnings and networks to stakeholders and partners solving distinct challenges in each country. Existing local hubs will continue to be the main connectors and operators of their countries and can expect greater synergies at the regional level to create new collaboration opportunities for their local ecosystems.
