International partnership to promote cross-border technology adoption and commercialisation

kin8 and IPI have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to formalise their partnership on 11 October 2019.

The partnership will cooperate to promote cross-border technology adoption and commercialisation.

IPI catalyses and enables enterprises to grow their business through technology and innovation. An affiliate of Enterprise Singapore, IPI works with companies to source for technologies locally and abroad through its open innovation platforms and global network of technology partners to facilitate technology partnerships that bring new and innovative products and services to the market.

kin8 acts as the bridge between the commercial world and the academic world through engaging and facilitating open innovation strategy among commercial partners, university research teams and global industry leaders. Kin8 assists companies, start-ups and universities in Australia and around the world to enhance industry competitiveness and unlock the tremendous innovation and technology of universities and research organisations.

“It is an exciting outcome for kin8 to partner with IPI in Singapore. Kin8’s core focus is research and technology translation for better economic and social outcomes for all. This includes building innovative environments, both virtual and physical, where diverse individuals, teams and knowledge can intersect to create new ideas and outcomes,” Mr. Matt Frith Managing Director of kin8.

“The agreement is part of IPI’s efforts to further extend its global network of technology partners. We are looking forward to a fruitful cooperation with kin8 to foster co-innovation opportunities between technology seekers and providers in Singapore and Australia,” said Dr Sze Tiam Lin, Senior Director of IPI.

kin8 is a team of experts in innovation and research translation. The team comprises founders, innovators, start-up founders and social changemakers.

kin8 is passionate about creating impact through collaborating deeply with our partners and seeking to empower those with whom we work. Innovation may contain technology but, in the end, it is a people business. Without collaboration innovation does not occur.
