Director’s message

 

Technology is evolving and will play an increasingly significant role in the world's economic landscape. As drivers of technology 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 NTC, 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.

NTU truly provides a conducive environment that connects seamlessly with the ecosystem to educate the next-generation technopreneurs. NTU has been ranked as one of the world’s top universities. We have one of the most beautiful campuses in the world, empowering the close collaboration between scientists and business gurus of diverse backgrounds. As the driving force of innovation and entrepreneurship at NTU, we are committed to develop these talents to think, judge, decide, and act under intrinsic uncertainty to survive and thrive, for both Singapore and the global economy. NTU's strength in interdisciplinary research and strong credentials in technology innovations allow us to deliver effectively on this important endeavour.
