IPI Singapore (a subsidiary of Enterprise Singapore) and AAIS co-organised a webinar on 29 April 2021 to discuss business and technology innovation for Aerospace. In particular, the event highlighted the role of IPI Innovation Advisors in assisting enterprises.
We were pleased to have Dr Sze Tiam Lin of IPI provide an overview of IPI’s innovation services. A rich discussion ensued with Mr Julien Valette of CW Aero Pte Ltd sharing his business challenges and his experience in working through these with the help of IPI Innovation Advisor, Mr Derek Sharples. Derek also spoke of his approach to assisting CW Aero, prioritising business model innovation. For example, beyond equipment sales, he explored other options like leasing and financing of equipment. On the topic of technology innovation, Julien observed that it was important to first establish the business objectives and model, before discussing what technologies were relevant. Derek also emphasized the importance of a regular commitment of time to work through the innovation opportunities systematically with an Innovation Advisor.
We invite enterprises curious about IPI or the services of Innovation Advisors, to contact us.
