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.

The IntensE Industry Track is a sub-programme of the IntensE track where successful applicants of the Industry Scholarship Programme work on a problem statement provided by an Industry Partner. The participant will follow the same course structure as those in the IntensE Track, but will spend the field work developing solutions with and for the Industry Partner. The participant of the IntensE Industry Track may also make use of additional resources provided by the Industry Partner.
