ICE71 is the first integrated cybersecurity startup hub in Singapore and the region, for early and growth stage cybersecurity startups and entrepreneurs.

It is a one-week programme for individuals to test their theories and ideas, qualify feasibility and commercial viability, and develop their business skills alongside other aspiring entrepreneurs.
Anyone with an interest in cybersecurity and a desire to contribute to the creation of a cybersecurity product, service and/or company should apply. We are looking for people with entrepreneurial flair and spirit, and who are committed to exploring a career in cybersecurity. We welcome applications from individuals at any stage of their career. Please note that ICE71 Inspire is for individuals, not teams.
The one-week programme will take place in ICE71’s premises at Block71, Singapore.
Technical expertise is not a necessity for this programme. Cyber innovation is deeply technical at a product level, but it takes all sorts to run a successful business. In the long run, it will help you to have some technical understanding, but ICE71 Inspire is about forming teams and crystallising ideas. If you learn fast and are interested in the cyber market, we welcome your application.

Each team will receive SGD 30,000 in return for up to 6% equity.
Yes, but that’s for your benefit, not ours! We’ve found that co-location alongside all the other participating startups is crucial in ensuring that you get the most out of the programme and the ICE71 ecosystem. We ensure you have enough curriculum-free time to get on with building your business.
No, we are only here to support you.
We expect your application to reflect the individuality of your company. There are no right or wrong answers. We’re looking for a strong team, a good idea and an appetite to learn.
Yes, we welcome applications from anywhere, but do let us know in your application writeup why you’re particularly interested in joining our programme in Singapore.
While we think our programme is particularly suitable for companies who already have an early stage product and/or service developed, we welcome applications from both concept-stage startups and later-stage businesses who feel they may benefit from the programme.
