The peers, professors and staff have been of great
inspiration. One of the most valuable components about
TIP is the international exposure and opportunities to widen
my horizon to think big and global. It also provided me with
immense confidence due to the numerous pitches to
venture capitalists and potential investors.

The TIP is a unique East meets West course that
combines the best of both worlds. This course has made
me aware of my strengths and weaknesses as an
entrepreneur. It has empowered me with a positive
attitude towards risk and failure. If last year I would have
said “I can’t do it”, today I understand myself enough that
I can confidently say “I can wing it”.

Develop an enterprising mindset
Master of Science Technopreneurship & Innovation Programme
I would not have embarked on my entrepreneurial
undertaking if not for the “experiential learning” gained
during my TIP days. The programme did provide me with
the technical know-how and network to kick-start my first
venture, but more importantly, it inspired me to take the
most difficult first step.

even course mates was an inspirational experience; TIP

educated entrepreneur.

A meaningful Purpose will help to strengthen and sustain one’s
Passion, which is the love for what one does. Perseverance is
critical for sustainability and against all odds. Principles is
fundamental - any sustainable success must be built on trust and
