Lattice80, a fintech hub in Singapore run by Marvelstone Group, has inked a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Japan’s fintech hub Finolab.
Under the agreement, LATTICE80 will gain access to mentor sessions in FINOLAB in Japan. Simultaneously, Japanese teams will gain access to similar mentor sessions in Singapore.
At the same time, year round events and networking sessions will be arranged by both the hubs as part of the partnership.
Commenting on the alliance, Lattice80 founding CEO and Marvelstone Group chairman Joe Seunghyun Cho said: “We see tremendous interest in Japan from the fintech teams sitting at Lattice80. Historically, Japan and Singapore have enjoyed strong trade and investment ties that go back decades.
“As a member of the international fintech community, it’s only right that we help to make the Japanese market, with its big push towards fintech, more accessible to startups in Singapore. We’re extremely excited to partner with Finolab on this pursuit.”
Lattice80 signed similar agreements with other fintech hubs, most recently with Nordic Finance Innovation to support fintech innovation in Asia and the Nordics.
