Real Tech Singapore Awards Enlipsium at TECH PLANTER Singapore 2023
Real Tech Singapore Pte. Ltd, a venture capital firm specializing in deep-tech startups across sectors in Southeast Asia, had the privilege of being a part of the judging panel at TECH PLANTER Singapore 2023, held on 26th May 2023. Out of the 45 teams that applied, the Real Tech Singapore Award was presented to Enlipsium, an innovative startup transforming radiology with its next-generation X-ray imaging systems.
Director Louis Murayama, a jury member from Real Tech Singapore, shared why Enlipsium was chosen for the award:
“Enlipsium’s journey is a testament to true entrepreneurial spirit and resilience. They stumbled upon a material with unusual properties during their research. Instead of giving up, they embarked on a relentless quest to find its application. Their journey led them to radiology, where their technology can help measure precise dosages for cancer treatment. They didn’t just discover an application, but they stepped up to establish a company themselves to solve a pressing issue. This story resonates strongly with our values at Real Tech Singapore.”
The TECH PLANTER event, organized by Leave-a-Nest Singapore Pte Ltd, marked its 10th edition this year, attracting a diverse crowd, including accelerators, incubators, and VCs. The event sparked vibrant discussions on strengthening the integration between Japan and Southeast Asia in the tech sphere.
