In November 2018, Trendlines Medical Singapore entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Accelerate Technologies (A*ccelerate) to collaborate and explore potential joint R&D initiatives in several medical technology areas.
Under the MOU, Trendlines Medical Singapore and A*ccelerate will work together to identify technology from A*STAR with the intention of spinning-off up to five start-up companies that will benefit from Trendlines Medical Singapore’s expertise in medical device incubation and A*ccelerate’s technology development capability.
A*ccelerate is the commercialization arm of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), Singapore’s lead agency for fostering world-class scientific research and talent.
We are working to ensure that A*STAR spinoffs get the most traction in the market. To do this, we must collaborate with the best partners to help co-create and grow our startups. … Trendlines’ ability to effectively incubate medical technology companies, will compliment this nicely.
—Philip Lim, Chief Executive of A*ccelerate
