The success of the muru-D Singapore Class #1 is also fuelled by support from local organisations, such as the Infocomm Investments Pte Ltd (IIPL), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA).
"The nine graduating teams reflect the diversity of start-ups and talents in Singapore and around the region. We, at IIPL, are committed to supporting and growing the start-up ecosystem by knowledge-sharing and connecting people and resources. We will continue working with muru-D and any other organisations to help start-ups in our ecosystem flourish," said Dr Alex Lin, Head of IIPL.
Launched in April 2015, muru-D Singapore is part of the Telstra Software Group. A component of its mission is to help build a healthy ecosystem for Telstra to drive software innovation, especially in Southeast Asia.
It will be opening applications for its second Singapore cohort in June 2016.
