IES-Incubator and Accelerator (IES-INCA) is a strategic initiative by The Institution of Engineers, Singapore (IES) to support engineers in technopreneurship.
IES-INCA is a platform “by engineers for engineers”. It is part of the Instituition of Engineers, Singapore (IES), and promotes and supports entrepreneurial engineers. We support engineers with deep tech innovations, in successfully commercialising their products and services.
From our board of directors to our operations team, IES-INCA speaks the same language and understands the needs of engineers and technopreneurs. IES-INCA mentors advise on necessary technical, financial and business developments; and unlike other accelerators, there is emphasis on quality engineering, rather than just business aspects.
IES-INCA incubates new technology companies that are in the process of scaling up. Technopreneurs can tap upon the rich experience industry and finance experts, to build a comprehensive and sustainable business.
IES-INCA also supports fund-raising efforts; our goal is to put each incubatee in the best position to pursue opportunities in both local and international markets.
To support Science, Technology and Engineering (STE) supports ventures in engineering translation, accelerating products to market and achieve success
