Transforming NUS technologies and talents into investible, scalable deep-tech start-ups
Launched in October 2018, the National University of Singapore Graduate Research Innovation Programme (NUS GRIP) is the Industry Liaison Office’s flagship innovation programme. It provides step-by-step guidance to NUS postgraduate students and researchers to cultivate deep tech entrepreneurs, to transform the university’s world-class research into their own deep tech start-ups.
Teams will undergo a one-year journey to be equipped with entrepreneurial skills and experience through workshops, mentorships, industry linkages and incubation support, to develop commercially viable and investible deep tech start-ups, generating a pipeline of up to 250 teams in five years. NUS will invest up to S$100,000 in start-ups demonstrating high commercial potential to accelerate their
growth. For more information, visit https://nus.edu.sg/grip.
