SWITCH 2017: Meet The Start-ups That Are Changing The World

A roster of talks, conferences and showcases by innovators who are using tech to propel the human race forward.

At Billionaire Singapore, we believe that true success is not only measured in dollars but by the qualitative value one adds to the world’s population of 7.5 billion people. Which is why we've decided to partner with the Singapore Week of Innovation & Technology (SWITCH), a week long celebration of Singapore's best innovators and initiatives.

Time and again, great societal impacts have come from technological and scientific breakthroughs by innovators who dare to engage in revolutionary thinking.

So, what are our next challenges? And why are they worthy pursuits? Some of the world’s toughest problems will be highlighted at SWITCH this year. Thinkers and tinkerers will gather to imagine a better world, finding new cures, ways to travel and ways to shape the future.

Themed as ‘Founding A New World’, the tech event will see a line-up of exhibitions, conferences, workshops and activities, fixed on six key areas of innovation: space, biotech, clean energy, artificial intelligence, autonomous vehicles and robotics.

Steve Leonard, founding CEO of SGInnovate, organiser of SWITCH, says: “The success of technology is not only measured by its value in the marketplace, but by its potential to impact lives. While we cannot control the speed of technological advancements, we can direct the direction that we want to be travelling towards.”

Billionaire Singapore is the official supporting media partner for SWITCH. SWITCH events run from 18 to 20 September 2017. For more information, visit
