The Enterprise Centre is Singapore Polytechnic’s gateway to entrepreneurship, fostering the growth of start-ups and business ideas within SP. It plays a vital role in connecting talents resources by working closely with agencies like SPRING Singapore to promote entrepreneurship…
The Enterprise Centre organises various events to promote the entrepreneurial spirit within the SP community. The Centre caters to a wide audience – from freshmen to alumni – with tailored programs for each group. Believing education plays a significant role in student entrepreneurship development, the Enterprise Centre works closely with schools in SP, together with entrepreneurs, professional trainers and industry partners to develop & organise entrepreneurship bootcamp, talks & workshops. Through these programs, students are exposed to the insight of entrepreneurial journey, start-up development and perspectives of investors in evaluating business model.
The Department of Industry Services (DIS) has walked the journey with some of our young entrepreneurs in the early stage of their entrepreneurial journey. Some was awarded the ACE Start-Up Grant from SPRING Singapore while some continued their journey without the extra funding.
One lesson learnt is that,
“If you are working on something exciting that you really care about, you don’t have to be pushed. The vision pulls you.” –Steve Jobs
