Together with the Latin America Chamber of Commerce Singapore, SGTech pioneered an E-Business Mission from February to April this year, to connect our Singapore tech community with the Latin America market.
The E-Business Mission comprises informative webinars through which tech companies gained valuable market insights on Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Mexico, and one-on-one online meetings to match them with potential partners in these countries.
The mission was launched by Mr Wong Wai Meng, SGTech Chairman and Dr Pablo Lizana Allende, President of the Latin America Chamber of Commerce Singapore. The Ambassadors to Singapore from each country graced the launch of the mission:
Over the course of the mission, 23 Singapore tech companies met senior representatives of more than 45 Latin American tech companies as well as distributors. Collectively, participating companies received more than 144 leads.
There are some early indications of success from the participating companies; also, at least two companies are hiring Business Development Managers for the Latin America market to follow through with the promising leads. Some companies have also reported possible sales of more than S$340,000.
“We enjoyed working with SGTech and Latin America Chamber of Commerce Singapore for the E-Business mission. The event was well organised and we had some very good initial meetings with a number of Latin America partners. We are currently following up on these leads and we really appreciate the help provided by Angela, Ying Ying and everyone who helped make this event a success.”
— Jeremy Yap, Business Development Manager, Latin America, Graymatics
“The E-Business mission to Latin America has opened up new opportunities in markets with enormous business potential. Thanks to the programme, we have met new partners to work with, to continue growing in new markets with very different cultures from what we are used to. We can only be grateful for all the support they have offered us.”
— Elena Jin, Marketing Manager, Latam & Spain, TAIGER
