About the IMDA Spark Programme

The advent and digital adoption of disruptive technologies has revolutionised the global economy, leading to digital transformation that has reshaped business models and created new possibilities for our businesses to increase productivity, achieve greater scale, and generate new streams of earnings. Against this backdrop, Singapore must prepare our businesses, workers and people for the digital economy that is upon us. Aligned with our Digital Economy vision, the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) has been working towards building a competitive Infocomm and Media industry that can underpin the nation’s drive towards digital transformation.

The IMDA Spark Programme is aimed at addressing the key challenges and supporting the growth of promising Singapore-based ICM startups through selected Government tools as well as the creation of a vibrant, collaborative ecosystem and network. The 3 key objectives are:

Uplifting the capabilities and supporting the initial growth of promising ICM start-ups and companies in Singapore through a hybrid of Government grant tools and support from leading industry community partners;


Providing opportunities for promising enterprise tech start-ups to pitch and build initial reference customers in Singapore leveraging Government demand;


Building a vibrant Singapore ICM community and network that promotes problem-solving and collaboration with peers and ecosystem partners to drive the growth of Singapore’s ICM ecosystem.
