Sentosa X Enterprise was launched in April 2019, as part of Sentosa Development Corporation (SDC)’s continued commitment to enhance the island’s diverse array of unique leisure offerings.
Aimed at driving innovation among local enterprises, Sentosa X Enterprise will create opportunities to test bed unique ideas, concepts, and technologies, while leveraging the holiday island’s geographical attributes and environment.
The focus areas include Connectivity, Experience, Sustainability and Digital, as outlined below. Click here to see examples of ideas.

How It Works
Sentosa X Enterprise offers a win-win partnership, where innovators and enterprises benefit from a risk-sharing arrangement while working on projects that could boost Sentosa’s vibrancy and attractiveness.
Sentosa island is being offered as a testbed venue to innovators and enterprises to bring innovative or novel ideas, concepts or technology that require proof-of-concept.
In addition to facilitation support, proposals will be reviewed for eligibility for funding under relevant government schemes, subject to criteria and qualifying costs.

Ongoing / Past Trials
SDC has always been working with partners to trial new ideas on Sentosa Island. Some past and ongoing trials are listed here.
For each of the initiatives, SDC has provided venue and facilitation support to ensure a smooth implementation.
Autonomous Shuttle Trials
ST Engineering Land Systems & Ministry of Transport
Trial Period: October 2017 - December 2019
As part of Singapore's Smart Nation drive, we facilitated the test-bed of driverless shuttles on the island.
During the public trial, guests had the chance to try out the on-demand autonomous shuttle buses to get around the island.
ScentOsa AR Perfumery
Jetaime Perfumery Pte Ltd
Trial Period: November 2019 - April 2020
A personalised, multi-sensory, perfume-making for guests on Sentosa Island.
Personality surveys and Augmented Reality (AR) projections were employed to provide guests with a unique and immersive experience.
As part of the project, Jetaime developed a proprietary, all-new perfume using orchids and plants indigenous to Singapore and Sentosa.
Wartime Food and Sustainability Workshop
Edible Garden City Pte Ltd
Trial Period: February 2020 - November 2020
A hands-on educational gastronomy workshop on food and sustainability, featuring wartime food crops at Fort Siloso.
During the workshop, participants revisited the dark days of the Japanese Occupation at the Surrender Chambers and learned how people adapted their food sources.
Solar-Powered Sunscreen Kiosk
No Fry Zone Pte Ltd
Trial Period: June 2019 - December 2019
The first and only fully-powered sunscreen lotion-dispensing kiosks in the world, these kiosks were placed at Siloso, Palawan and Tanjong beaches to provide guests with access to skin protection anytime.
No electrical connection is required due to the solar panels attached to its roof.
Sunscreen lotion was dispensed directly to users, therefore reducing the need for single-use plastic packaging for a more environmentally-friendly outcome.
Waste Management Sensor
SembWaste Ptd Ltd
Trial Period: February 2020 - September 2020
Sensors installed in litter bins will capture data on the filling level and transmit such data into cloud storage.
Reports can be generated from such dashboards to analyse the trend of litter bin emptying trips and volume, which could lead to prodictivity improvements.
Scott AR Mobile
SixTrees Viz Comms Pte Ltd
Trial Period: November 2019 - February 2020
Featuring an interactive storyline, the different historic exhibits at Fort Siloso were brought to life through the AR App.
The immersive experience enabled guests to have a deeper perspective of the rich heritage of Fort Siloso.
