Global Entrepreneurship Internship Programme (GEIP) 2020
19 Contact Hours
Level 3 EEP Programme
Our team kicked off mid-January with our second run of the Global Entrepreneurial Internship Programme 2020.
GEI is a signature internship programme initiated by Ngee Ann Polytechnic in 2016. It provides students with internship opportunities to experience life in vibrant startup ecosystems abroad.
This vibrant batch of cadets from Ngee Ann Poly, Republic Poly and Temasek Poly went through an intense Hackathon-style weekend, in the form of a supersonic crash course on Entrepreneurship and Startup fundamentals through hands-on, interactive activities.
Modelled after Startup Weekend and the Google Ventures Sprint process, cadets learnt the fundamentals of enthnographic research, prototyping and designing for tech implementation.
Opening address from Master Trainer & CEO Rusydi, as our Reactor trainers pump up cadets for the intensive hackathon weekend ahead.
Interactive discussions and activities on Ideation, and the importance of Knowing your Customer when building a product or service.
Learning and applying Design Thinking fundamentals, and deciding on the product or service each group will be building and presenting the very next day.
We've only just begun, and there's less than a day to go!
It's D-Day: Final touch ups and rehearsals before Demo Day. Most groups were up late hard at work on their product and elevator pitches.
Reactor Demo Day: Where cadets present their startups to a panel of judges or investors on the final day of the programme.
Our cadets delivered stellar elevator pitches, from the real-world problems they were dedicated to solving, to the products or solutions that would remedy these issues, inclusive of digital or physical prototypes.
