The Elevator

The Elevator Banner

The Elevator is a pitching platform for post-proof of concept to pre-seed/seed stage start-ups. Started by the National Research Foundation in 2017, participants gather to pitch their technologies to potential companies, investors and collaborators who can invest, collaborate or co-create with them.

The organisation of The Elevator is now being rotated among the various Innovation & Enterprise Offices (IEOs) to further integrate the event into the I&E ecosystem, positioned as a platform for the ecosystem, by the ecosystem. The Elevator is presented along thematic tracks to attract targeted audience. Past tracks included healthcare, advanced manufacturing and IoT technologies.
