Startup@Singapore 2010 Is Here
Startup@Singapore 2010 is now on.
Organized by the NUS Entrepreneurship Society, and supported by the NUS Enterprise Centre and NUS Business School Alumni Association, Startup@Singapore has attracted more than 2000 teams and 7000 participants, some from countries as far away as Australia, Canada, Norway, Pakistan, Russia and Greece since its inception in 1999. It’s spawned award-winning businesses such as mobile and data security provider tenCube, inventor of the chapati-maker Rotimatic Zimplistic and mobile software startup TheMobileGamer (whom I’ve interviewed here).
It’s again calling for entries from tertiary students from Singapore and the ASEAN region to submit their business ideas for a chance at a share of SG$50,000 in cash prizes and an exclusive opportunity to be incubated in Silicon Valley, USA. Startup@Singapore will also provide current and aspiring entrepreneurs with access to educational seminars, team-building workshops, mentorship opportunities and networking sessions, to help them make the critical transition from paper to product.
Interested participants can download the contestant kit here and submit an executive summary (of no more than three pages) by 1st February 2010.
