ENGIE Fab & ENGIE Factory at the Cleantech Forum Asia28/10/2019
The ENGIE Factory APAC team was delighted to host Hendrik Van Asbroeck from Engie Fab and Johann Boukhors from ENV at their ENGIE Factory headquarters in Singapore. This visit was planned in conjunction with a conference - Cleantech Forum Asia – which is centred around the future of Asia’s sustainable innovation ecosystem, and brought together a global connection of investors, corporates and the latest generation of startups.
It was an action-packed week filled with fruitful meetings with Singapore government agencies such as Enterprise Singapore and Economic Development Board, as well as investors such as Temasek. We also had interesting conversations with startups for near future partnership, including one called Sensorflow, an air conditioning efficiency provider, as well as over a dozen meetings with other mobility, energy efficiency and renewable energy startups.
At Cleantech Forum Asia, the ENGIE Factory team took to the stage as thought leaders - presenting an opening keynote as well as being on a lively panel discussion. Quentin Vaquette presented a keynote on what it takes and from whom to break systemic logjams to create some momentum and set us on paths towards net zero, and Edwin Cheang took on a real estate panel discussing the opportunities for sustainability in the sector.
One of ENGIE Factory’s pilot startups AVA Asia also made it to the list of CleanTech’s APAC Top 25 Startups.
