Welcomes Elevandi as a member organisation
Plays host to the main events of Singapore FinTech Festival 2021
Brings back week-long FinTech Odyssey to foster more collaboration
Singapore, 5 November 2021 – Bridge+, the flexible workspace and community platform of CapitaLand, has welcomed an additional partnership with Elevandi to bring together the FinTech community, cementing its role as both Singapore’s FinTech hub and the premier gathering place for the FinTech ecosystem. Bringing vibrancy to the Central Business District, Bridge+ 79 Robinson Road will see its beautifully designed spaces play host to panel discussions, lab crawls and industry networking as part of the sixth Singapore FinTech Festival (SFF) taking place from 8 to 12 November 2021.
Concurrent with hosting SFF, Bridge+ 79 Robinson Road will run FinTech Odyssey, a series of hybrid events it has co-curated with its members and tenants of 79 Robinson Road. Serving as a complement to SFF’s main events, FinTech Odyssey aims to connect the biggest and brightest members of the Bridge+ FinTech community, fostering opportunities to amplify social and business engagement amongst FinTech professionals. Through these activities, Bridge+ 79 Robinson Road affirms its role as both enabler and connector for the FinTech community.
To foster connections within the FinTech ecosystem, Bridge+ continues to seek out community partnerships, including its latest with Elevandi, a new Company Limited by Guarantee (GLC) created by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS). Elevandi joins the stellar list of FinTech bodies that Bridge+ collaborates with, including Singapore FinTech Association (SFA), ASEAN Financial Innovation Network (AFIN), the Asian Institute of Digital Finance (AIDF).
Mr Pat Patel, General Manager, Elevandi, said: “Moving into Bridge+ represents a big step forward in Elevandi’s journey. We are excited to be part of the Bridge+ family and our partnership to create a vibrant FinTech hub in Singapore. We have already started on this path with Bridge+ hosting the Singapore FinTech Festival as well as taking part in the Innovation Lab Crawls this week.”
Mr Chew Peet Mun, Managing Director, Investment & Development, CapitaLand Development (Singapore), said: “A combination of apt infrastructure, services and programmes has enabled Bridge+ 79 Robinson Road to serve as a core nucleus for Singapore’s FinTech ecosystem, with a healthy occupancy of FinTech ecosystem leaders. We are delighted to further engage the Fintech community on an international platform like the Singapore Fintech Festival, and confident that working alongside high-calibre partners like Elevandi will enable more of such collaborations and events in the future.”
As more companies look to optimise expenditures and costs required to maintain their workspace infrastructure, Bridge+ 79 Robinson Road aims to fill a gap in the market with a core-and-flex workspace model that offers members the benefit of a central, high-quality office space located in a prime district of Singapore, with the flexibility of shared event spaces and meeting rooms through a subscription powered by high-tech integrated solutions.
Since launching in January 2021, Bridge+ 79 Robinson Road has built up a membership base that comprises a healthy mix of fast-growing startups and enterprises. Member organisations include The FinLab by UOB, Bank of International Settlements Innovation Hub, BondEvalue, Ekata, Tribe, LiquidX, Elevandi and other fast-growing FinTech companies.
