Voices of PIER71
Participation in PIER71 opened up the maritime industry to us, and the runner-up recognition quickly took us to countries across the world. Additionally, the mentorship received at PIER71 was invaluable and today we are able to use those lessons to chart our journey through 4 continents and 10 countries.

Being part of the PIER71 ecosystem has really helped move our organisation forward – right from precise framing of the right problem statements. This means we can now get to the core issues faster with our ecosystem partners and develop fast paced and productive strategies to work with startups – this is a new skill in a corporate environment.
Nakul Malhotra Vice President Open Innovation, Marine Products, Wilhelmsen
The immersion in the port ecosystem of Singapore literally launched our business. We validated both our technology and the business case. Being part of the PIER71 Smart Port Challenge opened doors, coaching was great. Winning the third prize is the icing on the cake; it put Teqplay on the map in Asia.
Léon Gommans CEO, Teqplay
PIER71 is an excellent platform for the maritime industry to share challenges, problem statements and innovative solutions as we harness each other’s strengths to build a more efficient maritime ecosystem. Through PIER71, Jurong Port has significantly strengthened our partnerships with start-ups, technology companies and Institutes of Higher Learning to test-bed solutions for our waterfront transformation.

Making Waves at PIER71
Creating a digital splash in 2020
PIER71 turns 3 this year. Thanks to our founding partners, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) and NUS Enterprise, we have grown the maritime ecosystem through active engagement of maritime corporates and global tech startups in open innovation opportunities. Looking back at 2020, it’s probably safe to say that screenshots far exceeded actual photos for most business activities. Thanks to everyone who graced our screens last year!
