About Y-Lab Foundry
NEW! We are excited to share about the graduation of our startups in Cohort 3! Learn more about the four companies and their prototypes here.
The Y-Lab Foundry is a unique Art x Tech innovation programme, housed in one of the largest museums in Southeast Asia - National Gallery Singapore. Designed and delivered together with Dalberg Advisors, the appointed innovation partner, the programme provides entrepreneurs, startups, and scale-ups an opportunity to launch or testbed their Art x Tech innovation through one of three ways:
- Enhancing a product with artistic input and applications to improve its functional and emotion experience
- Taking art expressions one step further with complementary technology to deepen the artistic intent and experience
- Testing or developing a product that may have applications within the art and culture sector (leveraging on the Gallery's footfall and visitorship) as well as in the other sectors due to its technical viability and use cases.
The resulting innovations shall be beneficial to the Gallery, as well as to the broader art and culture sector in Singapore.
Selected programme participants will gain privileged access to work with the Gallery’s internal and external stakeholders. They will attend content workshops conducted by staff of the Gallery, as well as external domain experts, allowing for customisation and adaption before presenting their solution to a panel of judges over multiple rounds of selections. The final five teams will collaborate closely with specific business owners of the Gallery to develop a working prototype and potentially conduct a pilot post-programme. The programme will culminate in a Demo Day that will be attended by stakeholders of the local Arts and Culture ecosystem.
