What's a Go Global Mission?

From 2016 will lead international missions and visit some of the most exciting startup hubs in the world. We'll organise pitching & networking opportunities with investors, the local tech scene, potential clients and make sure you get the right information on how to set up shop in these ecosystems. We'll meet Belgians who already took the plunge and visit some tech stars while at it. 

Singapore is renowned for being the forefront regional business and trade centre in Asia, its strong position in world capital markets, and its remarkable development history. Singapore's government is perhaps the most proactive government in the world when it comes to developing the tech industry - it pumps tons of money into grants and initiatives which has resulted in it being lauded as "Asia's Silicon Valley". As the center of global economic activity gravitates increasingly to East Asia, Singapore's role will further grow, providing huge opportunities for emerging and developing businesses.
