Startups at NU

Kickstarting the entrepreneurial spirit

At NU, you don’t just get a degree. We encourage our students to innovate and take risks. They acquire strong problem-solving capabilities, are encouraged to discover their purpose in life and develop a multi-faceted personality. They also gain exposure to and train in an industry of their choice. That’s why, by the end of their programme, more and more NUtons are raring to go and convert their bold ideas and innovations into successful startups.

At NU, we don’t believe in ‘creating’ entrepreneurs. We believe in nurturing an entrepreneurial mindset that allows NUtons to innovate, incubate and succeed in their chosen business. Which is why our graduates have gone on to establish their ventures across diverse fields from cyber security and data analytics to green technology and bioinformatics to communications and entertainment.

All new ideas need nurturing if they are to flourish. They must be well-executed if one is to succeed. NU’s Centre for Innovation, Incubation and Entrepreneurship (CIIE) provides incubation support, encourages students to innovate strategies and creates pathways to take their ideas forward.
