Why Join IPHatch®?

Business Expansion

We help facilitate start-ups overseas expansion by identifying different market needs for and with them, then presenting start-ups with technologies they could exploit to solve these social issues.

Technology Portfolios

We advise start-ups on how they could increase their valuation through technology acquisitions, licensing and collaboration with world-renowned MNCs.


We educate local start-ups through various mentoring programmes and devise a promising go-to-market strategy with them that would meet market needs overseas.

Funding Opportunities

We recommend local and international funding opportunities through our extensive network of global partners.

Global Incubation Community

We have a range of exchange incubation/ accelerator programmes that are dedicated to connect start-ups and entrepreneurs in different hub cities of the ecosystem through our overseas partners.
