Because we believe that the process from idea to product is educational, we organize seminars, networking session and workshops to help aspiring entrepreneurs with anything and everything that they would need to write a good Business Plan.
Start-Up@Singapore happens in several phases. To take part in the first phase, participants would need to submit an Executive Summary, which should cover all aspects of the team’s business idea and implementation.
After the Executive Summaries are submitted, experienced judges are invited to evaluate them. If the judges collectively deem a team’s Executive Summary to be promising, the team will proceed to the 2nd phase of Start-Up@Singapore. In this phase, the team will be required to broaden the Executive Summary into a full-fledged Business Plan and pitch it to a panel of experienced judges.
The winning teams will get to take home a substantial cash prize that may help them to turn their winning ideas into a money-making reality. Wait no further, Join Us now!
