The Science Park of Singapore is an international reference that houses many international technological businesses, as well as local and foreign startup companies.

The businesses that can be found in this Science Park have found the working conditions in Singapore, from fiscal benefits to the proximity to local universities, suitable for developing their business.

Today I was able to visit the company of Professor Lim Hock, Director of the Division of Research and Services at the National University of Singapore.

The University boasts an ambitious entrepreneurship program that permits its students to spend up to one year in a successful startup, while continuing their studies at a prestigious university. They have made a significant investment in training entrepreneurs who, upon their return, are prepared to follow the same path that has led others to success. It is admirable to see how the Government of Singapore supports its Universities, which in turn support their entrepreneurs, in developing strategic projects for their country. This has allowed Singapore to be a reference, for example, in the development of underground water storage systems, fuel systems, weapons systems, etc. to the point of now beginning to plan a second underground city.

This first meeting will set in motion a number of bilateral projects in the field of entrepreneurship as well as research in some of the fields in which we have allied with this and other internationally recognized state universities.
