Transforming NUS technologies and talents into investible, scalable deep-tech start-ups
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.
Twice a year, 25 teams are selected from the best and brightest NUS researchers and postgraduate students to equip them with entrepreneurial skills and experience.
For the duration of one year, teams will undergo a transformation journey through a series of workshops, mentorships, industry linkages and incubation support, to develop commercially viable and investible deep tech start-ups. NUS will invest up to $100,000 in start-ups demonstrating high commercial potential to accelerate their growth. We are committed to take in 50 teams a year, generating a pipeline of up to 250 teams in five years.
NUS GRIP can also co-create solutions with companies through the IDEAS Bank - custom matching problem statements to teams with the best abilities to develop deployable solutions.
