Our story

AIRmaker was established in 2016 as a seed stage venture fund to invest in IoT (Internet-of-Things) startups focused in the Digital Health and Smart Cities segments. Since its inception, one of AIRmaker’s core strategy is to develop a network of Corporate partners, Research Institutions and Institue of Higher Learning (IHL) centres that would come together to engage with AIRmaker’s portfolio of startups.

To date, AIRmaker has invested in 16 startups. The funded startups have gone through a 3-month long in-house Accelerator Programme that was conducted in Singapore and Shenzhen, China. Besides, AIRmaker had taken a batch of 5 startups to Beijing in late 2017 for a market access programme.

In 2018, AIRmaker has expanded its mandate to leverage its extensive Asian corporate and startup network to curate and match innovation needs from the industry with cutting-edge technology providers. It also continues to run bespoke corporate training programmes for matters relating to innovation and working with startups.
