The Event

Piece Future has developed a unique programme – IPHatch® .

IPHatch® is a transformative, challenge-based open innovation competition that enables emerging deeptech startups to expedite their technology growth journey by integrating impactful, sustainable technologies originated from MNCs into their current business strategy. Selected patents/ technologies will be assigned to IPHatch® winners, thus giving them the advantage to propel their businesses to greater heights through fast tracking their IP and tech commercialisation.

In addition, IPHatch® winners have the privilege to unlock additional value-added benefits such as enrolment into a 5-year complimentary incubation programme, plus exclusive access to our network of startup ecosystem partners including government bodies, research institutions, accelerators, incubators and VCs across 9 key Asian and European markets (Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, and the UK).
