To help our FinTech community cope with the global pandemic, we have worked closely with the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and the industry partners to introduce the APIX Cares Programme for Singapore:
MAS supports FinTechs to get free 6-months access to APIX for global sales engagements
Complimentary Insurance Top-up by Prudential to all eligible FinTech employees
AWS Credits, Tech support, Partner Funding, and Training resources
In support of APIX Cares, the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) will provide all Singapore-based FinTech firms six months’ free access to APIX. Through APIX, FinTech firms and FIs can integrate and test solutions via our cloud-based architecture. Existing Singapore-based FinTechs that are commercially onboard APIX will also have their subscription extended until 31 December 2020.
To be eligible, you must be registered and operating in Singapore for at least 6 months, be providing technology solution for the financial sector and sign up onto APIX platform by 31 December 2020.
For FinTechs who currently do not have a paid membership with APIX, simply sign up for an account on APIX, and quote the promo code ‘APIXCARES2020’ during the payment process, for free 6 months access.
For FinTechs who are already a paying member of APIX, drop us an email at email@example.com to have your membership extended until 31 December 2020.
