During the residency, EY will provide a tailored learning program that is based on EY industry insights experience in helping startups accelerate their business growth and develop their technology. What’s interesting is that EY will take no equity in the startups and will give the startups S$120,000 worth of Microsoft Azure credits to further support the building of participants’ technology stack.

EY will also open the opportunity for participants to pitch their ideas to EY leaders and the supporting corporate community, as well as their technology, or products generated from EY Foundry’s residency time.

“By working with the smartest talent in the startup space, we are unlocking new markets and innovation, building new relationships, and ultimately better serving clients,” said Jon Dobell, EY Asia-Pacific Tax Innovation Leader.

Previously, EY Foundry had a successful run in Sydney, Australia in 2018. Singapore would make its second country.
