Frequently Asked Questions

The Discovery Tool is an interactive dynamic guide to the ecosystem. It's aim is to enable startups to find the supporters best suited to their needs, and also to allow supporters to explore the various startups in the ecosystem. Based on data gathered by OSH on companies, supporters and startups can input up to 3 criteria depending on what they need, e.g. funding, training etc. The tool will then recommend the startup/supporter that is most relevant, you can then click the logo to take you to their profile and proceed with contacting them. If a relevant company cannot be found, then we encourage you to submit that feedback so we can identify gaps in the ecosystem and ensure that we work with our partners to fill them.

All information that is confidential is clearly marked, and is strictly for data gathering purposes in order for stakeholders to make informed decisions on how to better build the Innovation ecosystem. All other information will be displayed on the site and will help feed the ecosystem and ensure that the site can recommend the most relevant stakeholders for your benefit.
