Representatives from SUSS included Mr. Kenneth Yap – Deputy Head, Office of Entrepreneurship, Ms. Toh Xin Yi – Senior Executive, Office of Entrepreneurship, and Ms. Nancy Ha – Operations Manager in Vietnam, who attended the exchange session with IEC.
The two sides discussed coordinating activities to promote exchange, connection, and equipping knowledge and skills for students between the two countries, especially in the field of innovative entrepreneurship. By integrating resources and jointly designing closely related programs, the two sides will spread the spirit of innovation and the elements needed for an entrepreneur to students.
In particular, SUSS will connect its students with startup incubators at the ITP for internships and experience in the entrepreneurial environment.
