Year in Review 2023

Wednesday Dec 20,2023 | IIE News


As we bid farewell to an incredible year, let’s take a trip down memory lane and celebrate the top 3 outstanding achievements that defined 2023 for SMU IIE!

The 11th Lee Kuan Yew Global Business Plan Competition:
Our global impact soared as we hosted the 11th Lee Kuan Yew Global Business Plan Competition, bringing together over 1,100 attendees from across the globe. It was a testament to the spirit of innovation that unite our diverse community.

Protégé Ventures Fund II Launch:
Protégé Ventures (PV) secured $500K in new funding from Mr. David Su of Matrix Partners China. This investment is a powerful endorsement of PV’s commitment to supporting early-stage startups founded by students.

Global Innovation Immersion (GII) Expansion:
Our global internship program, GII, reached new heights with the launch of a 6-month credit-bearing track in collaboration with partner universities in Thailand. This initiative not only provided students with a unique career-enhancing opportunity but also allowed them to earn academic credits towards their degree fulfilment.

Join us in reliving these remarkable moments that made 2023 a year to remember!

Stay tuned for more exciting developments and innovations in the coming year as we continue our journey of growth and excellence.

Wishing you a joyous holiday season and a prosperous New Year ahead!
