FUTR APAC Summit will host some of the finest food and drink at the ArtScience Museum, including FabCafe launching their inaugral cafe in Singapore, Grain, SaladStop! and CafeBond.com
FabCafe is a place where people can have fun, tasty and creative experiences. Founded in Tokyo, FabCafe was the first in the world to introduce the concept of a maker’s space café that offers handson experiences on stateoftheart tech devices such as laser cutters, laser engravers and 3D printers in a collaborative community setting, and of course, great gourmet coffee to keep the creative juices flowing. Under the umbrella of FabLab, FabCafe shares the vision of FabLab, "enabling invention by providing access to tools for digital fabrication," and especially focuses on creative exploration.
The first FabCafe opened in Shibuya, Tokyo in March 2012. Since then, the FabCafe network has expanded to Taipei, Barcelona, Bangkok, Toulouse, and Hida...with popups around the world and more in planning!
And most recently, we’ve brought the Fab movement to Singapore, opening the latest FabCafe at the worldfamous ArtScience Museum.
SaladStop! was founded in 2009 with the aim of bringing a new dimension to salads and approach to fast food. Today’s society is becoming increasingly disconnected with their food – we want to show that food consumption should be honest, trustworthy and real. As we’ve grown over the past few years, we constantly strive to improve and embrace an attitude to be “better than yesterday”.
We currently operate in Singapore, Manila, Jakarta and Tokyo and aim to become the world’s leading nutrition, health and wellness company serving the best tasting, most nutritious food. As we expand our footprint in the region, we remain true to our core values and commitment to the ideology of “Eat Wide Awake” through all aspects.
As we set up the salad bar every morning, we are driven by the communities that we work with and the lives that we are able to impact. We are just at the beginning of an amazing journey and dream about a world where farmers are respected and customers can start trusting their food again. We are still a small company but with big dreams and hope that we can be one of the catalysts in this change.
We really like building things that people enjoy using - the people at Grain have started things at Uber, Google, Dell, Bain, Accenture, Kiva and ThoughtWorks. Grain's investors include NSI Ventures, 500 Startups, DMP, Ivan Lee (Thai Express) and Koh Boon Hwee.
In an increasingly competitive food delivery space, one Singaporean startup is shaking things up.
The idea is simple: Use high-quality raw ingredients, creative cooking techniques, and deliver restaurant-quality food to customers. Most food delivery companies, such as Deliveroo and Foodpanda, serve as a medium of transport for restaurants and have no control over the food quality and service standards. But Grain controls nearly every piece of the process from cooking to ordering to delivering.
"By controlling every single touchpoint, we are able to fine tune all our processes around our customers,” says Grain co-founder Yi Sung Yong. “This helps us curate the perfect customer experience."
Cafebond.com is also one of the four startups hand-picked by Microsoft Singapore to be co-located within its Asia Pacific Headquarters and is currently part of DBS Hotspot 2016, the startup support programme by DBS Bank, one of Asia's largest bank.
