As Asia's thought leader in innovation and enterprise, NUS Enterprise's work – to deliver experiential entrepreneurial education, forge active industry partnerships, provide comprehensive entrepreneurship support, drive catalytic entrepreneurship outreach, and be the bridge to industry for the University – has seen its footprint and impact extend well beyond Singapore's shores. Examples include:
