Catalysing SU students to embark on their entrepreneurial journey

Whether the aim is to build their own business, formulate a purpose-driven life, or just think of solving big problems differently, we help SU students to learn new skills and adopt an entrepreneurial mindset to realize their vision for a better future.

2022 Student

Our 2022 programs are currently closed for new applicants but we will have more programming coming up soon for 2023!

Our DS&E Bootcamp provides a foundational knowledge in cutting edge data science topics such as big data, AI and machine learning, accompanied by a heavy dose of design thinking, lean startup and entrepreneurial development techniques. Participants who complete the bootcamp will all be considered for internships at tech firms. 

SU Innovation Showdown is a competition where students enter their existing businesses or new business ideas, attend workshops hosted by SU LaunchLab to help them develop their entrepreneurial skills, and finally pitch their ideas to a crowd and panel of judges for the chance to win cash and other prizes.
