Startup Station Innovation

Allied World Healthcare (AWH), an all access healthcare provider, is proud to announce that the organisation has been selected for Startup Station Singapore, run by Facebook and the Infocomm Media Development Authority of Singapore (IMDA).

“We are excited to introduce the 11 startups who will be Startup Station Singapore’s first batch of startups! During the process of selection, we received hundreds of applications to our programme, and have met so many talented entrepreneurs. It was an exciting process and a huge welcome to QSearch, Envolve Data, Qlue,, Peoplewave, Allied World Healthcare, DRVR, Newswav, GigaGigs, Vouch and Waitrr. Congrats to selected startups! It is going to be a wild ride for the next few months, and we can’t wait to see what you’re capable of!”, said Facebook Singapore on their official announcement via their Page.

The programme allows AWH to transform their technology user experience, data analytics, consent models, marketing and user engagement; bringing in skills from across the global Facebook group to support the strategy, design and delivery of future programmes. This is hand-in-hand with the IMDA and a leading regulator, helping provide input to policy and governance in the region.

Edward Booty, CEO of AWH, said: “Following three tough months of interviews, I am delighted that we have been accepted to Startup Station Singapore. This allows us to improve our product and service with leading global innovators; elevating us to the next level in our growth. Thank you to Facebook and the IMDA, and we are looking forward to the programme.”

The programme will last for 6 months, covering three in-person training sprints, technical support, access to a range of tools, mentoring and strategic input. There will be a showcase Demo Day at the end of the programme, involving the startup, corporate and investor community in late August.
