The Nanyang Technopreneurship Case Centre (NTCC) has published 25 cases covering Singapore and Global Technopreneurship cases

First established in 2014 with a grant from Singapore’s National Research Foundation and funding support from the Nanyang Technological University, the Nanyang Technopreneurship Case Centre (NTCC) was one of the initiatives of Nanyang Technopreneurship Center (NTC) to enhance the quality of entrepreneurship education through Technopreneurship cases. NTCC is arguably one of the first, if not the first, such dedicated Technopreneurship case centers in the world.  In so doing, the NTCC has been instrumental in continuing NTC’s efforts to foster, promote and nurture enterprising mind-sets, skills and knowledge in technopreneurship through education.

We are pleased to release our pioneering batch of 25 cases covering Singapore and Global Technopreneurship cases that are outstanding – at least in their own ways and in the lessons that can be offered.

We recognize that we have not covered all countries nor all important Technopreneurship organisations but hope that these 25 cases will provide an additional source of important Technopreneurship education knowledge which is a primary focus of NTCC

With the kind support from Singapore’s National Research Foundation and the Nanyang Technological University, this has enabled us to share knowledge on a complimentary basis and to learn from each other.

The NTC New York Entrepreneurship Forum 2017: Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship

The NTC New York Entrepreneurship Forum 2017: Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship

Social entrepreneurship is about creating and leading organizations to apply business and management techniques to resolve social problems. Rather than leaving societal issues and needs merely to the government or business sectors, social entrepreneurs take an active role with strong commitment to lead social changes for a better society. This forum aims to facilitate exchange of views by experts from academia and industry to help participants develop a social enterprising mindset and acquire insights for creating value for the society.

“Business is a very beautiful mechanism to solve problems, but we never use it for that purpose. We only use it to make money. It satisfies our selfish interest but not our collective interest.” 

Muhammad Yunus

The Father of Social Business and Microcredit, The founder of Grameen Bank and The 2006 Nobel Peace prize Winner

President Lu Feicheng published original keynote speech On “ICSB-China 7th annual meeting and international Intelligent Science & Technology Innovation Forum – Zhongguancun Summit”

The word “Entrepreneurship” has been mentioned a lot, but now there is no authoritative explanation?

We also often communicate with each university, some universities explain “Entrepreneurship” is to seize the opportunity, to grasp the opportunity, to use a capacity. This issue, I had talked about it with the global entrepreneurship Federation President Matthews for the whole of more than 2 hours, when I visited their university in2009.

Finally, we reached a consensus: Entrepreneurship is a new business model created by entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial organizations, which creates new high-tech products and transforms them into the most efficient social and economic values.

Entrepreneurship is a process; it is the process of the entrepreneur or entrepreneurial organizations activities. First of all, one is entrepreneurs, and the other is entrepreneurial organizations. And secondly is the creation of new business models and new high-tech products, such as intelligent technology is a new high-tech.

Finally, entrepreneurship is the process of transforming entrepreneurial achievements into the most productive forces or producing the most efficient social and economic values.

Above is my understanding of the concept of “entrepreneurship.”
