Rolling Applications

Previously, applications for TECS had deadlines but now, you can apply all year round. But applications will still be batched together for evaluation on a ‘regular basis’.

Summary of TECS

The $75 million TECS was launched by SPRING Singapore in April last year to provide technology start-ups and enterprising public sector researchers with early-stage funding support to R&D projects either at the Proof-of-Concept (POC) or Proof-of-Value (POV) stages. The POC grant seeks to develop technology ideas early on from the conceptualisation stage by providing full funding of up to $250,000, while the POV grant provides 85% co-funding up to a maximum grant of $500,000 to further R&D and develop the POV or first working prototype.
