Background

COMMERCIALISING TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATIONS

Piloted by NUS Enterprise as the first entrepreneurial education programme for researchers, the Lean LaunchPad Singapore (LLP Singapore) programme was launched in June 2013 to help research scientists and engineers turn their inventive technologies into commercially viable products and feasible business ventures.

Modelled on the US National Science Foundation I-Corps programme, LLP Singapore is adapted for the local context, designed as an evidence-based innovation platform for the commercialisation of deep technologies.

With Singapore’s increased investment in R&D, LLP Singapore is an important programme that will directly impact commercialisation outcomes, through the form of commercially viable products, licensed technologies and high-tech spin-offs.
