Lean Launchpad@Singapore Preview 2
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.
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. You can experience the pace, uncertainty and pressures of a startup as an “Entrepreneurial Lead” of a team in the programme.
Hear from past participants and network with the teaching faculty over dinner.
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. Each participating team is made up of a Principal Investigator, an Entrepreneurial Lead and a Mentor.
