    What is TAG.PASS?

    TAG.PASS (Platform Accelerated Startups) is a pre-accelerator for startups to validate their business model, build their minimum viable product, gain traction and receive funding.

     

    TAG.PASS is specially designed to help aspiring entrepreneurs develop and test their business model by quickly converting their ideas into winning products in 11 weeks through domain coaching, business mentorship and platform access.

    For the upcoming Batch 3, participants in the program will have the opportunity to collaborate with overseas members to form multinational teams. For example, a Singaporean entrepreneur could partner with a Taiwanese or Korean co-founder to leverage on each other’s strengths, benefit from cultural diversity, gain insights into different markets, and eventually launching localised products that are catered to each market concurrently!

     

    If you are interested to create a successful global startup with a multinational team from day-one, and would like to have the opportunity to attend a segment of acceleration program in these countries, talk to us now!
