So what is Blk71 all about?
Blk71 is building up an eco-system where startups meet, match and connect. With reference to Brenden Mulligan’s article on techcruch, Blk71 is in fact building an Startup Hub and as a fellow entrepreneur this is certainly something I like to see happening in Singapore.
I am not writing this post to ingratiate Blk71 because they are incubating us. But I am writing to spread the word and resources that startups can tap on in Singapore and I would definitely love to see more entrepreneurs gather together, bouncing ideas. “remember I am incubate here too. I can be selfish and not share about the existent of these resources, but why should I 😀”
So what are the other reasons beside food(#1) that you should come Blk71.
#2. You get to meet well-known VCs and incubators. Incubators like JFDI Asia, Plug and Play Singapore, Small World Group, SingTel Innov8… etc are all located at Blk71 – who knows your startup might get notice and get funded!
#3. Various networking and Startup events. For example, Intraix had the opportunity to network with Japanese startups, it was a great experience understanding their startup culture. Events such as Barcamp, Startup Weekend, Startup Bootcamp and even audition for Demo Asia are held at Blk71.
So if you are running a startup or thinking of startup up. Come Plug-In@Blk71
