LATTICE80 prides itself on creating an ecosystem for FinTech startups to collaborate, connect and create. It plans to offer FinTech companies the opportunity to tap on the rich networks and resources to develop smart technologies and springboard to international success. More importantly, it boasts an impressive technological infrastructure that corporate members can leverage on for their business needs.

Located in 80 Robinson Road and spread across two levels of space on levels 8 and 9, LATTICE80 measures more than 30,000 square feet and features an open event space with the capacity to host 250 people, a private and public lounge, semi-open and open-plan offices, a cafe, boardrooms, meeting rooms, a podcast studio and a nursing room, along with a stunning view of the Central Business District.

To date, more than 20 foreign and local FinTech companies and associations comprising over 100 people at varying stages of growth have signed up to take on residence at LATTICE80, with established players alongside yet-to-launch ventures and early stage startups. The types of companies and associations include blockchain, robo-advisors, trading systems, online marketplaces, financial education, cognitive computing, big data analytics and fund management.

Says Joe Seunghyun Cho, LATTICE80’s Chief Executive Officer, “We want to create a platform that can support the FinTech ecosystem in Asia and form bridges that link to global players. We’re serious about fostering connections with the technology and financial communities here in Singapore and globally. We’re co-creating the future of innovation, banking and finance in Singapore and considering the enthusiastic group of start-ups we have today, I’m very confident that we have the foundation to create a truly unique world-class community.”
