Deep Block, a cutting-edge MLOps startup, has been named as one of the finalists for the highly anticipated 2023 May D·DAY event, slated to be held in Singapore on May 4th. This event is being organized by d·camp, a leading startup hub in Korea, known for supporting young entrepreneurs and fostering a thriving ecosystem to drive innovation and growth.
The hub focuses on providing early-stage startups with the necessary infrastructure, investment, and networks to succeed. It invests in budding startups poised to lead the future and provides them with prime office spaces in various locations, creating an environment where they can easily collaborate, communicate, and interact.
The highlight of the D·Day event is a pitch competition, where the winner stands to win a cash prize and the chance to integrate into the startup hub. All members are eligible for investments and will receive support to move into a co-working space in Singapore.
Deep Block has identified Singapore as a crucial strategic destination, as it provides easy access to the ASEAN region, which accounts for 9% of the global geospatial analytics market and is the fastest-growing region in this field.
As developing countries in the South East Asian region continue to experience rapid urbanization, there has been a significant increase in demand for geospatial solutions across various industries such as urban planning, agriculture, logistics, and transportation. In response, governments in the region have been heavily investing in geospatial technologies and infrastructure. For example, Singapore's Smart Nation initiative aims to leverage cutting-edge technologies, including geospatial data, to improve the quality of life for its citizens.
