“Having been built out of co-working spaces alongside other startups and entrepreneurs, we understand the challenges that startups go through especially in the areas of communications and attracting investors. Partnering with ICE71 Scale Startups is our way of supporting the innovation ecosystem and deepening the relationship with Singapore’s entrepreneurial and startup community.”
– Lars Voedisch, Founder and Managing Director at PRecious Communications.
PRecious Communications is proud to announce that we have signed an MOU with ICE71 to offer public relations and media communications clinics and workshops for ICE71 Startups.
ICE71 (short for “Innovation Cybersecurity Ecosystem at Block71”) is an initiative driven by Singtel Innov8, the corporate venture capital unit of Singtel, and NUS Enterprise, the entrepreneurship arm of the National University of Singapore (NUS) to strengthen Singapore’s growing cybersecurity ecosystem. It aims to do this by attracting and developing competencies and deep technologies to help mitigate the rapidly increasing cybersecurity risks in the region.
ICE71 programmes are designed to support cybersecurity individuals and startups from idea development to the creation, acceleration and scaling of cybersecurity startups.
“ICE71 provides the opportunity for startups to leverage extended support and expertise by way of mentoring, networking events and workshops. To enable ICE71 Scale start-ups to identify and understand issues which they may face in media and public relations, PRecious Communications will conduct workshops and consultation clinics on a one-to-one basis,” said Dawn Ng, Director, Ecosystem Development (Incubation), NUS Enterprise.
ICE71 Scale is designed to help international and local startups grow their business in Singapore and within the Asia Pacific region. Under the programme, participants will take up residency at ICE71, establishing their Asia Pacific operations. Each startup will have access to office space and facilities, and enterprise-grade cybersecurity resources such as a cyber-range, to test and showcase their solutions.
PRecious Communications will mentor ICE71 Scale Startups with PR and communication strategies. Our team will conduct workshops, catered for groups of 15 — 25 attendees. The objective of the workshops will be to provide startups with insights, perspectives and concrete advice in the areas related to media and public relations.
Over the past seven years, PRecious Communications has worked with over 150 startups, 15 unicorns, 3 Eduardo Saverin co-funded companies and several startups accelerators. In this period, PRecious SPARKS has supported equity and token-funded rounds of over USD 10 billion.
