ISF Incubator, the startup arm of Intellectual Ventures, today announced its partnership with a second startup company in Singapore, No Fry Zone. The company will provide on-demand access to sunscreen products for beachgoers and outdoor adventurers, with the first kiosks installed at Sentosa this month. No Fry Zone follows ISF Incubator’s first international startup, Secur3DP+, which was launched in May and is also headquartered in Singapore.
ISF Incubator exclusively licensed patents and technology to No Fry Zone to accelerate the company’s product development. Following its launch at Sentosa, No Fry Zone will expand to new locations throughout Southeast Asiathrough strategic partnerships with leading travel destinations and tourist attractions.
“We believe our company can help people live healthier lives while also making it easier, cheaper and more sustainable to stay protected from the sun,” said Dennis Soon, CEO of No Fry Zone. “We knew we needed support to accelerate our vision and get our product into the market, so we’re thrilled to work with the ISF Incubator team and have access to valuable technology.”

The kiosks are solar-powered and deliver individual portions of sunscreen to ensure proper protection, while reducing consumer waste. The company is focused on making it easier for individuals to protect themselves from harmful sun exposure while on the go and is also committed to environmental sustainability through eliminating the need for individual sunscreen bottles.
“We’re excited about engaging with a second startup in Singapore as we continue to participate in the region’s strong startup ecosystem,” said Danielle Quint, director of business technology for ISF. “No Fry Zone is well-positioned to fill a critical gap in the local tourist and outdoor recreation economy. We will continue to look for great ideas and local entrepreneurs throughout Asia.”
ISF Incubator’s first Singapore-based startup, Secur3DP+, was launched in May as a joint venture with NTUitive, the innovation and enterprise company of Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. Secur3DP+ brings additive manufacturing to global companies by providing a supply chain hub for 3D printing. Launched in quick succession, these two startups expand ISF Incubator’s global footprint as it focuses on building companies in Asia.
