The National Research Foundation (NRF), Enterprise Singapore (ESG), and the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) have worked together to combine Singapore’s FinTech Festival (SFF) and the Singapore Week of Innovation and Technology (SWITCH) into one event (2020 SFF x SWITCH) celebrating innovation and entrepreneurship in late 2020.

IEEE Future Directions, IEEE Computer Society, IEEE Spectrum, and IEEE Entrepreneurship, have collaborated with Enterprise Singapore to present an entire afternoon of virtual programming. Discussions on a diverse assortment of topics including innovations in quantum computing, the future of computer architecture, and advances in AI will be led by several distinguished IEEE guest speakers.

In addition to the programmatic contributions above, IEEE Entrepreneurship will be conducting the IEEE Entrepreneurship Stars Recognition Program virtually in conjunction with the 2020 Slingshot Startup Competition at 2020 SFF x SWITCH.

The IEEE Entrepreneurship Stars Recognition Program recognizes best-in-class technology startups that have engineering-driven innovation at their core and additionally have an impact that aligns with the IEEE mission to foster technology, innovation, and excellence for the benefit of humanity.
