Unilever Foundry launches first Singapore-based co-working space

Unilever’s startup partnership business Unilever Foundry has launched Level 3, it’s first Sinapore-based co-working space.

Located within Unilever Singapore Headquarters, the Level 3 space is said to be a ‘physical manifestation’ that connects small business and innovations to the corporate world via the Unilever brands, according to The Drum.

Launching with 15 start-ups the space will eventually house approximately 50 companies, with Adludio, ConnectedLife, Datacraft, EcoHub, GetCraft, Next Billion, Olapic, Snapcart, TaskSpotting and Try and Review being among the ones that will start with the launch.

The space, which was a collaboration with innovation catalyst Padang&Co and support from the Economic Development board, is said to be an area that will allow startups and Unilever staff to work on projects with networking opportunities, mentoring sessions and access to training and resources. It will also be the setting for Unilever brand briefs and problems.

Jonathon Hammond, Head of Unilever Foundry, said, “Born through Unilever Foundry’s own mission to collaborate, experiment, and pioneer for a sustainable future, Level3 is a physical manifestation of this ethos.”

While Pier Luigi Sigismondi, President, South East Asia and Australasia, said, “Level3 stems from our mission to make sustainable living commonplace. It offers our business a direct connection with disruptive technologies and changemakers to shape the way we work — ultimately impacting people’s lives. Level3 is the springboard for startups to scale and build successful businesses.”
