IMDA is supporting the inaugural edition of the Festival of Disruptors (FOD), which is organised by Gofiee and Sundance Company. The Festival of Disruptors brings dynamic and inspiring individuals, start-ups and technologies in a compelling showcase of personal talks, panel discussions and performances focusing on innovative disruption.

The inaugural festival will focus the lens on two significant global themes - Innovation and Earth. From the innovation panel, attendees will be inspired by stories from Dr Albert Lin, National Geographic Explorer and keynote speaker for the event, Elaine Yan Ling Ng, award-winning designer and TED Fellow, Abhilash Murthy, Founder of Bus Uncle; Singapore’s Bus Chatbot and Annabelle Kwok, Founder of SmartCow and AI Practitioner.

Speakers from the Earth panel include Benjamin J.Butler, Founder of Emerging Future Institute, Matthias Gelber, Environmental Scientist, and Nadya Hutagalung, Eco-Activist.

FOD also includes the Ten4Ten pitch challenge, a platform to look out for the most disruptive, innovative start-ups in Singapore and around the world, addressing a critical problem or need in a traditional market with the use of a mobile application and a connected “Internet of Things” (IoT) device.
