The Singapore FinTech Festival (SFF) and the Singapore Week of Innovation and TeCHnology (SWITCH) will celebrate the first-of-its-kind collaboration with a week of events and activities centred around innovation in FinTech and deep technology. Both events drew close to 57,000 delegates from almost 130 countries in 2018.
Last year’s events were graced by international and local dignitaries, including Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India, Christine Lagarde, Managing Director, International Monetary Fund, Lim Chow Kiat, Chief Executive Officer, GIC, Phi Van Nguyen, Chairlady, Saigon Innovation Hub and Willson Cuaca, Co-founder and Managing Partner, East Ventures, among others. SFF x SWITCH will feature leading disruptive technologies across five key sectors – Advanced Manufacturing & Engineering, Urban Solutions & Sustainability, Health & Biomedical Sciences, Services & Digital Economy and FinTech – to prime business transformation. This integration will serve as an inspirational cross-industry platform for greater exchange and learning, deeper understanding of technology capabilities, synergistic application of resources and partnership development for commercialisation.
