Asia New Zealand Foundation Opens Doors To Singapore's Tech Innovation Hub

New Zealand university students and recent graduates will soon be able to experience in Singapore's deep-tech sector through internships with Singapore start-ups.

The Asia New Zealand Foundation Te Whītau Tūhono is excited to announce the launch of its latest tech industry internship, in partnership with SGInnovate, a Singapore government-backed investor and ecosystem builder focusing on deep-technology development.

The internship gives students in STEM the chance to live and work in Singapore, at the heart of Asia's dynamic emerging technology ecosystem.

"This internship presents an exciting opportunity for young New Zealanders to get involved in the advancement of deep tech innovation and gain exposure in one of the world’s leading startup ecosystems," says Asia New Zealand Foundation CEO Suzannah Jessep.

Interns will be working at Singapore-based deep tech startups, gaining hands-on experience working with research projects.

"Interns will be placed right in the center of the action, learning from leading experts and witnessing the transformation of research into real-world applications," adds Jessep.

The Asia New Zealand Foundation has a long and successful record in offering business internships across Asia.

As part of the SGInnovate "Summation Programme", this new opportunity expands the Foundation’s internship portfolio, and reflects our commitment to keeping pace with the evolving tech startup landscape and diverse industries in Asia.
