This month, M&C’s sister company, Gemstar Technology, established its brand new Innovation Centre of Excellence in the heart of Singapore, one of the world’s leading innovation nations. Launched in 2013, Gemstar was born from Gemma’s vision to unearth great Australian tech talent in Singapore and greater Asia. The opening of the Innovation Centre is the next step in Gemstar’s transformational growth plans.
Currently, Asia is a largely untapped region for Australia. Given our geographical proximity to Asia – particularly South-East Asia – and the region’s innovative environment, it offers exciting growth opportunities for Australian companies.
Gemstar is staying ahead of the curve by immersing Australian companies in South-East Asia’s thriving ecosystem. Since inception, Gemstar has successfully hosted multiple ‘Unearthing Singapore’ Trade Missions, showcasing Australia’s impressive talent and fostering local and regional growth opportunities.
“I’m confident that Gemstar’s established presence in Singapore and ever-growing network of partners and influencers will accelerate business locally, regionally and globally. Our Innovation Centre of Excellence will be a hub for innovative thinking, creativity and collaboration, and a stepping stone for future growth,” said Gemstar Founder and Managing Director, Gemma Manning.
In 2017, Gemstar will continue to bridge the gap between Australia and the South-East Asian market, with plans to expand into North America, the UK and Europe in the future.
