TSA membership is open to anyone, with Advocates inviting Advocates. The group has a small joining fee to cover its operational expenses, and any surplus is donated to charity.

To join the group, you will need to be introduced to Subhash R. Ghosh or Ashish Kothari, the Founders of Tech Singapore Advocates (either via email or in person), by a current Advocate. Either of them will explain the purpose, goals and various elements of Tech Singapore Advocates to you – such as the Working Groups, Triage and Home Office Hours.

Once you have been introduced to the group, you will officially become an Advocate. This will entitle you to access the growing network of Advocates, attend Tech Singapore Advocates events and participate in TSA Working Groups. You will also have an official listing on the Tech Singapore Advocates website.

There is no time commitment or minimum engagement required to being an Advocate; you can participate in and engage with the group as much or as little as you like. There are however three asks of each Advocate, irrespective of their level of engagement:

  • To be ‘on message’ about the tech sector in Singapore and the rest of the South-East Asia(TSA messaging is provided on the website and in monthly email updates).
  • When ready, help expand the TSA network by introducing an Advocate.
  • Adopt the ethos of helping one another for the ‘greater good’ as a means of establishing a strong and vibrant technology sector.
  • If you are not yet an Advocate and would like to be one, please contact an existing Advocate you know who will bring you into the group .
