The Original Problem: Incubation and innovation labs in emerging economies are vital sources of innovative talent and hubs of knowledge of local business opportunities that are not utilized by new entrants.
Our "Reframed" Question: How do incubation and innovation labs in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore provide value to foreign investors/companies?
What We Did Uniquely: We mapped organizations in central hubs of Jakarta, Bali, Singapore, and Kuala Lumpur. In addition, we conducted facility tours and interviews.
Our Discovery: Various services exist across incubation and innovation labs relevant to expanding businesses ranging from access to local partners/investors, hiring/regulatory support, and existing product teams to expedite market entry.
