The Innovfest Unbound Festival 2015, jointly organised by NUS Enterprise and AcreWhite, opened with a keynote panel discussion titled 'Global Innovation: Singapore and the World'. The panel discussion featured prominent speakers such as Dr Vivian Balakrishnan, the Minister-in-charge of the Smart Nation initiative, and NUS President Prof Tan Chorh Chuan. They discussed the need for start-ups to have actionable ideas and vision, as well as Singapore's suitability as a place for innovation.

NUS Enterprise and Access Health also launched a tech accelerator called Modern Ageing at Innovfest. The initiative is aimed at developing services for healthcare firms and organisations catering for retirees.
