Lean Launchpad@Singapore Preview 1
Be introduced to the programme concept of Lean Launchpad@Singapore and its take-aways by Prof Wong Poh Kam, Director of the NUS Entrepreneurship Centre and Professor at the NUS Business School. Also conducting the session is Jerry Engel, the National Faculty Director to the US National Science Foundation I-Corps programme and Founding Executive Director Emeritus, Lester Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation, UCL Berkeley.
As the lead faculty of the programme, Prof Wong designed this programme for researchers in universities and public research institutes who want to commercialise their technological inventions, with the local ecosystem in mind.
Hear from past participants and network with the teaching faculty over lunch.
Lean LaunchPad@Singapore is an intensive, 10-week experiential learning programme that is modeled after the US National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded I-Corps programme for principal investigators who are recipients of NSF grants, to move their technologies out of the lab and into the market.
