Singapore, April 22 |  Aspire today announces the launch of a new program, "Aspire for Startups," aimed to support startup founders throughout every stage of their entrepreneurial journey.

The global startup landscape has faced significant challenges due to recent economic downturns, which tested the resilience and adaptability of entrepreneurs worldwide. Despite these hurdles, Asia continues to witness an innovation boom and unprecedented levels of technology adoption and entrepreneurship. According to Mckinsey, in the last decade, Asia has accounted for 52% of global growth in technology company revenue, 43% of global growth in startup funding, and 87% of global growth in patent filings. “Aspire for Startups” is designed to equip these startup founders with the tools, resources, and connections needed to thrive in today's startup ecosystem.

"Aspire for Startups" brings together a comprehensive suite of benefits, providing entrepreneurs with exclusive access to a thriving community of like-minded founders called “FoundersXchange”, industry insights and resources, a business account, and up to 50k USD worth of rebates on SaaS subscriptions to build out a complete tech stack. This includes  50% off Google Workspace subscriptions, 25% off Slack premium plans, 6 months of free subscription of Zendesk , $5000 worth of AWS credit and many more.

“Aspire has always been deeply committed to empowering founders. With “Aspire for Startups”, we are taking this commitment to the next level by establishing a platform to  facilitate community and streamline their business operations,” says  Andrea Baronchelli, CEO & founder of Aspire.   “By leveraging our vast network, expertise, and resources, this program equips Asian founders with the necessary tools to unlock their full potential.”

With the support of global partners such as Peak XV, Action Community for Entrepreneurship (ACE) and Google Cloud, Aspire aims to alleviate the pain points that many startups face, and unify founders under a robust community that spans the continent. 

“Aspire for Startups” will kick off with a series of launch events held in Indonesia and Singapore next month.
