From scientists to entrepreneurs

Launched in 2018, the NUS Graduate Research Innovation Programme (NUS GRIP) is the Industry Liaison Office’s flagship innovation programme. Based on our extensive experience working with deep technology, the programme will provide 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 technology start-ups.

NUS will invest up to S$100,000 in start-ups demonstrating high commercial potential to accelerate their growth. We are committed to take in 50 teams a year.
