BLOCK71 is a global initiative by NUS Enterprise in collaboration with established corporates and government agencies. It is a technology-focused ecosystem builder and global connector which catalyses and aggregates the start-up community. Since our first programme in 2011, we have since expanded into 9 more offices across Vietnam, Singapore, Indonesia, USA, Japan and China. Together as a global team, we inspire and empower people with innovative ideas and technologies and provide them with mentorship and growth opportunities in local, regional, and global markets.
Launched in 2017, BLOCK71 Suzhou is a strategic partnership between NUS Enterprise and NUS Research Institute. BLOCK71 Suzhou, which operates out of NUSRI Suzhou's headquarters, serves over 80 tech-based start-ups comprising a mixture of overseas and Chinese start-ups in the deep tech domain.
Strategically located within Suzhou Industrial Technology Park, overseas tech companies exploring business opportunities in China can leverage these facilities to better understand the China market, ‘set up shop’ and expand business networks. China-based entrepreneurs, companies and investors can find out more about NUS research and technologies, as well as gain access to Singapore, Southeast Asian and other International markets through our events and activities.
Both NUS Enterprise and NUSRI Suzhou provides expertise and resources in research, education, technology translation and commercialisation as well as comprehensive support services and access to BLOCK71's global network of resources and technology and corporate contacts.
