Dr. Chaw Sing Ho

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are fortunate to have a few minutes to interview Dr. Chaw Sing Ho, co-founder and managing director of NAMIC (National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Cluster) of Singapore, which is an organization comparable to America Makes in the United States. This ice-breaker style interview explores Dr. Ho's personal journey to co-founding NAMIC; what drives him behind his work with NAMIC, and how NAMIC works to accelerate adoption and innovation in 3D printing in Singapore, in alignment with Singaporean economic development, as well as how NAMIC is doing to mitigate supply chain crisis in this pandemic. The interview also briefly touches upon resources available to 3D Printing startups (either internal or external to Singapore) from NAMIC. 

Guest Biography:

Chaw Sing Ho is the co-founding Managing Director of NAMIC (National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Cluster), a Singapore government initiative to catalyze innovation and scale industrial adoption of additive manufacturing technologies. By focusing on industrial applications and translational R&D, together with commercial strategies to co-create innovative products and services, the national initiative aims to position Singapore as one of the leading digital manufacturing hubs in the era of digitalization and smart factories. Since its inception two years ago, NAMIC has raised more than $24 million in public-private funding to support various AM initiatives across industry verticals.
Prior to NAMIC, he oversaw IP Innovation Strategic Partnerships at HP Singapore. Before that, he was the global head of manufacturing supply chain operations and product innovation for the consumer inkjet supplies business in HP. Chaw Sing started his career in the semiconductor industry with Chartered Semiconductor and Globalfoundries, where he undertook various leadership and customer-facing roles in technology development and engineering operations.

Chaw Sing holds a doctorate in Electrical and Computer Engineering and a Bachelor’s (honors) degree in Electrical Engineering majoring in Microelectronics from the National University of Singapore (NUS). He is an avid inventor with several US/international patents. An advocate for 3D Printing and its role in the new economy, he has spoken in various forums and workshops. He mentors a number of start-ups in the digital and healthcare space. He sits on a number of advisory and expert committees and is an appointed mentor under the GE Digital ASEAN Startup and Partner Program. He is personally interested in nurturing deep tech start-ups, as well as advancing STEM education and engineering as a profession. In his free time, he enjoys sports, movies, reading, and spending time with his family.  Dr. Chaw Sing Ho will be a speaker at 3DHEALS2020
