Director's Message


Technology is evolving and will play an increasingly significant role in the world's economic landscape. As drivers of innovation, entrepreneurs should be sensitive to and quick in identifying economic values of technology and seize new opportunities to translate them into products and services that benefit society. Entrepreneurship is a cornerstone of the growth strategies for the future economy.

In the eyes of people taking an entrepreneurial path, the future is not just a continuation of the past, but a result of purposeful and creative efforts. At NTU Entrepreneurship Academy (NTUpreneur), previously known as Nanyang Technopreneurship Center, we adopt a broad and vibrant approach to entrepreneurship, from leadership to management, operation, and innovation. Capability building and mindset change are both crucial to entrepreneurial success, be it idea generation, prototyping, new product design, marketing, or fundraising. Therefore, we strive to bring together technology innovators, entrepreneurs, investors, policy-makers and other stakeholders in the entrepreneurship ecosystem, to form interdisciplinary teams to address business problems in a global context.
