This entrepreneurship programme offers a full suite of learning electives, interleaving different learning cycles with industry practicum to ensure a solid grounding and real-world exposure. At the end of the programme, you would have a start-up going and the knowledge and skills to embark on a successful career in entrepreneurship.

The programme is designed to propel you through the different stages of developing your start-up for three cycles. Each cycle consists of 3 weeks of evening sessions, and real-world field work coupled with industry mentor support thereafter.

Through a combination of workshops and knowledge sessions, we prepare you for a deep industry engagement — embedding you within a sector that you are interested in and guiding you through our mentors and learning coaches as you create, validate and refine your own ideas.
