Hamburg, 26 June 2020. TecPier is pleased to announce that SEEDS Capital, the investment arm of Enterprise Singapore (ESG), has appointed TecPier as one of six strategic co-investment partners to invest in early-stage maritime technology startups in Singapore. The appointment was announced at Deal Fridays, a platform by Enterprise Singapore offering carefully curated deal-making sessions to facilitate regional investments into startups.

The joint investment initiative comes timely, as it underscores the role Singapore’s maritime sector plays in global supply chains and the support it lends to economic pillars such as logistics, manufacturing and wholesale trade. Innovation and technology are key growth drivers for the maritime sector and central to strengthening Singapore’s supply chain resilience.

SEEDS Capital and the appointed partners will invest in early-stage maritime technology startups to develop innovative and sustainable solutions that improve operational efficiency, safety and sustainability across the different segments of the maritime sector.

The overall objective of the co-investment partnerships is to drive up to S$50 million of investments into maritime technology startups in Singapore over the next six years.

TecPier and the other partners will provide hands-on assistance in helping early-stage startups to fast-track commercialization, with mentorship and connections to potential clients through their networks.
