This initiative is carried out under the Joint Foresight project conducted by the Malaysian Industry-Government Group for High Technology (MIGHT), Korea Institute of S&T Evaluation and Planning (KISTEP) of South Korea, Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPOS) International, Singapore and Science & Technology Policy Research and Information Center (STPI), Taiwan.

The following questionnaire is designed to prompt startups and related experts to present their views on the Future of the Startup Ecosystem. We invite you to think about the future of the startup ecosystem that is about to be changed by technologies related to the 4th Industrial Revolution such as robotics, artificial intelligence, big data, Internet of Things (IoT), 3D printing and autonomous vehicles.

The findings will provide the basic data for establishing policy measures to cope with changes in the startup ecosystem caused by technology development.

We kindly request you to respond to the questionnaire by:

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is building on the Third, the digital revolution that has been maturing since the middle of the last century. It is characterised by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between physical, digital, and biological spheres. The Fourth Industrial Revolution is evolving at an exponential pace. So much so that it is disrupting almost every industry across the world. And the breadth and depth of these changes herald the transformation of entire production, management, and government systems.

The possibilities of billions of people connected by mobile devices, with unprecedented processing power, storage capacity, and access to knowledge, are unlimited. And these possibilities will be multiplied by emerging technology breakthroughs in fields such as artificial intelligence, robotics, the Internet of Things, autonomous vehicles, 3-D printing, nanotechnology, biotechnology, materials science, energy storage, and quantum computing.

A startup ecosystem is formed by people and startups at various stages and various types of organisations in a location (physical and/or virtual), interacting as a system to create new startup companies. Various organisations typically focus on specific parts of the ecosystem function and startups at their specific development stage(s).

The startup ecosystem consists of six domains (see diagram): a conducive culture, enabling policies and leadership, availability of appropriate finance, quality human capital, venture-friendly markets for products, and a range of institutional and infrastructural support systems.
