It is with both sadness and gratitude that we announce the stepping down of Edwin Chow from IPI’s Board of Directors on 31 January 2023. Edwin is an advocate of open innovation and has been instrumental in shaping the services that we offer; he oversaw the conceptualisation and development of IPI’s Tech Expert initiative and has helped to shape the Innovation Advisors Programme during the ideation phase. Edwin leaves us in a very strong position for continued growth, and the team would like to take this opportunity to thank Edwin for his leadership, guidance and invaluable contributions during his tenure, and wish him the very best in his future endeavours.

On this occasion, we would also like to warmly welcome Emily Liew, Assistant CEO, Innovation & Enterprise Service of Enterprise Singapore, who will join IPI’s Board of Directors with effect from 1 February 2023. Emily brings with her immense experience in corporate and strategic planning, partnerships and policy from her long career in A*STAR and Enterprise Singapore. The team looks forward to working closely with her, and welcomes her guidance in enhancing Singapore’s innovation ecosystem and supporting the growth of enterprises.
