Small local technology companies face an uphill task in competing for projects with government and large enterprises. The challenges they face are difficulties in substantiating their product claims, lack of track record and market visibility. Being accredited will open up more opportunities for their products and solutions to be showcased and eventually bought. For buyers from the Government and large enterprises, the accreditation process would provide an independent third party evaluation of the companies' claimed product core functionalities and ability to deliver.
Through Accreditation@IMDA, IMDA will help these Singapore-based companies win more work within the Government. To increase the visibility of accredited companies, they will be showcased at IMDA events, demo days, and involved in thematic workshops to match government lead demand with innovative supply. The Government procurement process has also been streamlined to allow accredited companies to be considered first by Government agencies. Additionally, IMDA has tied up with various strategic industry partners which can provide useful resources and expertise to the accredited companies when bidding for larger projects.
Accreditation@IMDA is set up to achieve the following objectives:
- Accredit promising and innovative Singapore-based early-stage growth technology product companies to establish credentials and position them as qualified contenders to government and large enterprise buyers;
- Provide potential buyers assurance on the accredited companies' product core functionalities and ability to deliver; and
- Build an innovative technopreneur ecosystem to drive economic growth, inspire the younger generation, and build more innovative products and technology companies that can scale overseas.
