Executive Summary

Welcome to Supply Chain Asia’s Tech Accelerator Program (TAP) – a dynamic initiative poised to champion and accelerate the adoption of technology and innovation within Asia’s supply chain and logistics sectors. Our program is carefully curated to elevate early-stage startups and creative projects by offering a blend of technology enhancement, expert mentorship, and strategic investment. Leveraging the potent combination of seed funding, business acumen, and investment opportunities, TAP is dedicated to nurturing and actualizing transformative solutions set to revolutionize the supply chain industry.

TAP evolved from the Supply Chain & Logistics Innovation Playground (SCLIP), established in 2017. Over three years, SCLIP hosted over 40 companies within an 8,000 sq ft exhibit space, garnering support from Enterprise Singapore (EnterpriseSG), a government statutory board dedicated to enterprise growth. This initiative proved to be a nexus for innovation, providing a platform for startups like BLU, Caja, Cosmiqo, GogoVan, Haulio, InfoLog, and Zyllem to showcase their potential alongside established industry players such as Blue Yonder, IBM, Linde, and SSI Schaefer.

Embarking on a new chapter, TAP aims to continue this legacy of fostering cutting-edge solutions in supply chain management. We invite the brightest minds and innovative thinkers to join us in this venture. Together, we can build a resilient, efficient, and sustainable supply chain network that not only meets the challenges of today but anticipates the needs of tomorrow.
