Singapore is one of the few cosmopolitan societies in the world where people of different races, cultures, and religions live harmoniously. It is definitely one of the best places not just for cultural exchange but for learning all about entrepreneurship as well! Singapore, being home to Block 71 (which was named by the Economist as the world’s most tightly-packed entrepreneurial ecosystem) has been dubbed the Entrepreneurial Hub of Southeast Asia. It is even being compared to the famous Silicon Valley because of its thriving entrepreneurship scene and spirit that is ever present.
Students will get to understand the concept of entrepreneurship, what it means to be an entrepreneur, and the entrepreneurial culture in Singapore. Theoretical learning will be complemented by visiting SMU’s start-up incubator for students to have an up close and personal view of an environment that enables start-ups to work and grow.
