To kick off 2017, NUS Entrepreneurship Society will be organizing the Global Entrepreneurs’ Conference from 3 January to 7 January 2017.
The conference will be held on the National University of Singapore (NUS) campus at the NUS Business School. With a heavy focus on tech this year, the conference will equip participants with relevant startup skills and valuable networks to help them kickstart and conquer their startup journeys.
With expert masterclasses, informative panel discussions, private networking sessions and non-stop hustling, GEC is the event for young aspiring entrepreneurs to dive into Southeast Asia’s tech ecosystem and learn how to build a successful startup.
Meet and learn from industry big names
This event brings together industry experts from companies like Google and Facebook to impart important startup skills such as the lean startup methodology and growth hacking, as well as venture capitalists from the likes of Quest Ventures and Sequoia Capital to share their unique perspectives on the regional startup scene.
This is the perfect opportunity to meet these industry big names and learn from the very best. With networking sessions strongly integrated within the event programme, you can get up close and personal to build connections with esteemed founders, mentors and venture capitalists.
Turn your ideas into reality at The Entrepreneurs’ World Cup
What is entrepreneurship without getting your hands dirty? That’s where The Entrepreneurs’ World Cup comes in. The Entrepreneurs’ World Cup is a pitching competition where like-minded entrepreneurs form teams, validate ideas and build wireframes over the course of five days.
As the main highlight of the event, teams will pitch their hearts out to a panel of esteemed judges to walk away with attractive prizes (includes an intensive mentorship programme and a free overseas trip to Taiwan) and most importantly, the confidence and ability to bring their ideas to the next level.
