WTF jets off to Singapore!

From Monday 26 September to Wednesday 28 September, West Tech Fest returns to Singapore for the first time since 2019 hosting the first West Tech Fest Singapore Founders Tour, a new initiative for West Australian founders to explore future opportunities to expand their businesses in the region. 

The tour will be led by West Tech Fest Co-Founder and Curtin University Director of Commercialisation Rohan McDougall and West Tech Fest Project Lead Kali Norman. There are rumours that a few other Perthians may be in Singapore next week too, what with the F1 and all.

The group will utilise West Tech Fest and Curtin University’s networks to introduce the companies to the local ecosystem and understand the support networks available for their potential expansion overseas.

The tour forms the first phase of West Tech Fest’s transformation into a year-round offering to support the development of Western Australia as the fastest-growing startup community in Australia and was made possible thanks to the Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation (JTSI)’s sponsorship of the festival, and its ‘New Industries Fund‘.

Be sure to follow on Instagram to see what the tour gets up to.
